Black Dog Joy

As I ride my bike through our glorious autumn world, I am stopped in my tracks by the beauty. These days, the autumn joy makes me look back at other joyful parts of my life.

And, of course, one of them was our Black Dog. As beautiful as can be.

I remember the day that I took this photo so well. It was in the early phases with Hachi in the pack, and his issues were stressing me more than I ever admitted. I took our Black Dog out for a little stroll. We ended up in an aspen grove playing silly little games. For a few minutes, my stress evaporated. Our Black Dog could do that to me.

Black Dog Joy will never leave me.
