Shyla has been my shining beacon this summer. She has come so very far, and it makes me smile to see her be confident. She can make me smile when almost nothing else can.
She is the undisputed pack leader when it comes to all things athletic. She is absolutely crazy about swimming and retrieving from water. She knows that she's the best at it, and she struts her talent.
It's hard to believe that this is the same dog. Just look at her fly through the air with full focus on the ball that she's retrieving.
I love our Shyla more than words can express. Thanks for the smiles when I need them most, Shyla.
