Long Desert Days

One of my favorite parts of the day in the desert is sunset. I love the warm tones of the light in the world of reddish rocks. At one campsite, we climbed up onto a mesa at sunset.

The Duo raced to me from one side of the mesa with a towering canyon wall behind them.

It melted my heart to see how Shyla watched her brother. This was on our first evening at that site, and I didn't yet realize how tough it was for R to see when he was facing the setting sun like he was in these photos.

R crested the top of the mesa in full flight with Shyla still watching him.
I saw a little later that R could see very little while facing the sun so I didn't let him run in that direction again. I think that Shyla would gladly sign up to be R's guide dog. But I wish that he would never need it.

The Runner and Hachi relaxed above us while we played in the sunset light. I cannot imagine a more beautiful sight.
I love our pack and long days in the desert.


  1. that looks a little bit the rallye paris/dakar... but not with boring cars, yay!

  2. LOVE the last shot. R and S are so beautiful together

  3. Shyla sure is watching her dear R, so sweet.

  5. The silhouette shot of Hachi and the Runner is great. R is lucky to have Shyla for a sister since she would surely step up to be his guide dog if he needed it.

  6. OMDs you and your pack know how to have spectacular fun.

  7. Your pups are amazing. I can see why you get such joy being with them.

    Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday. Scritches to the pups. ♥

  8. Your whole pack seems to love it there.

  9. so beautiful in every way. the love comes right through their photographs.
    I just don't understand why vets can't help his situation... like eye drops for humans when they have glaucoma! how could we not figure that out for our beloved dogs? surely they must be doing research on it!
    hopefully they will have answers before R needs it the most. xoxo

  10. Beautiful photos - every single one of them! Love the canyon colors behind R and Shyla!

  11. That last shot is especially beautiful!

  12. Your last photo says so much, trust, love and companionship, all in one. R, I am sure bright sunlight will dazzle his eye, would he wear a cap with a brim like I have seen in some of your photos? Or maybe that on;y works when he is still? Beautiful place for you all to be together.

  13. Shyla is a good sister. She'll help him if he needs it.

  14. You and your pups have a different and wonderful type of life.

  15. I can just feel the warmth of the sunshine there. Shyla is such a sweet sister!!
