Shyla and I are loving the start of spring. It's a crazy weather time of year here, ranging from below freezing in the morning to as warm as 65°F some days.
This was one of the cold days. It was freezing and foggy. Shyla was a good sport to pose for me.
What I love about her is how much she revels in every kind of day. This was a far warmer day. It was the first day of panting!
After all that running, she's happy to cover my back during a brief stop to watch the birds. This was an exciting day for the swallows.
They are now incubating their eggs!
On that day, I was so busy taking photos that a coyote could have walked right up to me without me noticing. Thank goodness for Shyla!
After the bird watching, she was back in high gear.
Shyla and I are the perfect match because we both love the outdoors and wearing ourselves out cavorting on the trails. Of course, we have our differences too - like how I want her tight by my side in meadows (for coyote protection) and she wants to search for elk poop. Ah well - every bond has its strengths and weaknesses. The balance is that we have an amazing bond.
It's a dream that every dog, no matter their innate personality, can find a way to have a happy life. I think that Shyla has done just that. Happy Shyla Saturday!
