Thankful Thursday

As I reviewed my 2019 photos, a few leaped out at me as so special. This was one of them.

Hachi was about 6 months old and the true extent of his fears was becoming clear. During the weeks before and after I took this image, he had a few aggressive outbursts that scared me. Yet, our timid Shyla never withdrew her friendship from him. She steadfastly played with him and watched out for him like a big sister.
I didn't realize at the time that we were seeing the beginning of a beautiful bond. These two are so good for each other, and that makes me smile.

When I saw this image in my library, I felt so grateful for Shyla and for her friendship with Hachi.
