Well, the past few weeks have been a whirlwind, or a roller coaster, or tornado – use whichever analogy you want – it has just been crazy. After going through some stressful times, some bittersweet times, and some unsure moments, we finally got here… exactly where we need to be. You see, I just found out that I will finally be able to do what I have been hoping for a very long time – work so close to home that I don’t have to make a compromise between work and family; I can do both!
So with that, I decided to do a photoshoot of my boy. Today he actually wanted to go out in the rain (which is rare – he is such a prissy), so my wet water dog photoshoot is a celebration of sorts; a celebration of the balance and harmony we all hope for. And of course a celebration of sheer happiness! Because there is nothing else that I see other than that when I look at this face!
To Happiness, to Harmony, and to my Heart Dog!

We got to spend time with Nash’s little niece this past weekend. Her name is Chuva (“rain” in Portuguese). She is a sweetheart and a little explorer. She has no fear when it comes to the adult dogs and she also has no problem spending some time alone in the yard exploring and digging! I called her the little “independent adventurer” from day 2 of her life, as I watched her leave the pack on her own while all other pups were nursing just to do a big loop away from mom and then back to find a warm place to get nestled under her arm, and she seems to be living up to that independence and sense of adventure so far! I can’t wait to watch her grow! And I can’t wait until Nash realizes she is not a little alien, but another dog! Hahaha!
