Wordless Wednesday – Shadow


Wagging Our Tails

Thank you so very much for all of your compassion and kind words. It helps so much. And it’s wonderful to feel like dog people are a tribe. We all love our pups with abandon, even though we know they won’t be here forever.  Having that understanding and support from all of you is amazing.

Argo was feeling particularly perky this afternoon, so we took some family photos. The way dogs live in the moment is such a blessing. We had fun today, and I desperately needed it. I’ll share more photos soon, but I liked the way this one fit with one of my favorite quotes.
