3/22/13 - Enjoying the Moments


Well, the weather has changed on us.  It has cooled off enough to make it perfect camping temperature!  Oh, how I wish!  It may rain though.  Been there, done that – tent camping in the rain can be quite an adventure.  J

Obviously, my 2 faithful companions would love it - wind, rain and all.  We took a walk before the sprinkles began and sat for awhile on this elevated grassy knoll.  There wasn’t anything in particular to see, but it was gorgeous and serene.  The 3 of us sat there for about 40 minutes just watching, looking around, enjoying the cool breeze.  I am sans make-up and if you look closely enough you can see the bump on my noggin' from colliding with one of the kennel gates at the clinic last weekend, but I didn’t care.  I wanted to capture the moment.  That “nothing” out there that we had been looking at was sure interesting – Nonni and Bentley never even glanced my way.  This picture captures the 3 of us being us.

The next picture captures Miss Hope being Miss Hope.  I had pulled the suitcase out from under the bed and vacuumed before we left for our walk.  I forgot to put it back and she had made herself quite the nest while we were gone.  My animals are nature lovers and travelers at heart.  Hmmm, I wonder where they got that?!?  LOL.


Tomorrow, at the clinic, I don’t care what the weather is like.  I am taking the guy in the next picture to the dog park (pre-approved by vet and staff) so he can stretch his legs and fetch and play frisbee.  His story is below the picture.  I posted it on FB.  Hopefully someone will come to his rescue soon.  I’m afraid his days are numbered.


“Please help!  This baby boy’s human passed away & he needs a new forever home.  He is well trained – heel, sit, stay, fetch, etc.  He is healthy & current on his shots.  He loyally stood vigil over his human until help arrived.  So sweet!  He is high energy & being in a kennel is hard for him.  He is at the clinic where I volunteer.  His name is Lucky.  Please help him feel that way again.  Pass this on.  I will arrange travel if you are not local.  Thank you!"

Live and love each day to the fullest my wonderful readers.  HugZ!

    1. @ Sandra - by now you probably know that Lucky's story had a GREAT outcome! You have such a big heart. Sorry for the tears. Happy endings like this far outweigh the tragic things I see at the clinic. I wish everyone understood and lived from the concept that we are one. Love and hugZ!

  3. You three do look like you are loving life in that first picture. Miss Hope has made herself quite a comfy looking nest.
    Lucky is beautiful. By the sounds of JB's comment maybe he has a new home already?

    1. @ Ann - definitely loving life - something has shifted within me, through me - can't explain yet. And Miss Hope? That crazy kitcat - give her a box or paper or preferably a suitcase to lie on and she'll choose it every time over her comfy beds. LOL. Yes, you guessed right - JB gave Lucky his forever home. Lucky, indeed. :)
