Last week was pretty productive. I got a wild hair and decided to completely revamp the formal dining room…since it was hideous before, anything I could have done equals total improvement. The pups approve of the changes, and if you ask them, they did all the work.
This shot was going to be a zoomed in picture of a bird in the live oak tree…but in true Niko fashion, even this photo had to be alllllll about him. So needy. So adorable. So I zoomed back out just in time to have him finish walking over to my face, get a kiss, and walk back off again.
This is my life. I garden, I wrangle dogs, I take photos, I rinse and repeat. There really shouldn’t be much more to life. It should be that simple.
“Michiyo, Hyde and I are bored. Quit napping and come play with us! Michiyo..?”
These three, man. Some days I really want to be a dog…
Poor sweet little Hyde. How I love this rat-mutt…and how I hate that he’s hurting right now.
He and Fate both had comprehensive exams today, complete with shots. While she snoozes upstairs with her mom, Hyde is curled up where he’s most comfortable: right beside his mom. For someone to have had such a ruff (had to, lol) start to his life, he’s such a lover and a fighter.
Dogs are the absolute best therapy. I’m literally sitting here, waiting on that call to tell me a fight for life is over, and they know I’m stressed beyond words. So they’ve been within arm’s reach the whole day.
If you’re reading this, go hug your loved ones. Pull them close and don’t let go. Love. Live. Enjoy every moment, good or trying. Dance in the rain. Sing loud. Laugh so hard you cry. Do that thing you’ve always wanted to do, but were too scared to even consider doing it. Take that leap! Soar!!
I love you, even if I don’t know you. We’re all on this crazy rock together, and that’s what makes us family. ::hugs::
I spent a good bit of my day waiting for people to show up, or call for me to run across town. Not a lot to report; the dogs kept up with themselves and the house didn’t burn down. It’s a step up from leaving a bunch of teenagers home alone.
