Woody’s such a good boy. ...

91 degrees today, oy! Time to fill up Otto’s sandbox with clean, deep sand for the summer. (He approved.) ...

“Outstanding in his field.” A dad joke that will never get old 🙂 ...

He’s still well and happy, but at 13 and a half years old, I feel his spirit starting to wander when he sleeps. I didn’t used to be able to get anywhere close to him when he was sleeping without him waking up and greeting me with a wag and a sweet squinty hello. Our every day together is precious. ...

My heart. Senior dogs are so precious. ...

No dog looks as comatose, or as happy, as a dog who is soaking up sunshine on grass in the spring ...

Poor Woody. He doesn’t love her, but she, like all the foster pups, loves him. I have to find a home for her!! ...

Haven’t yet managed to take a picture of the foster dog that doesn’t scream EARS! ...

Balancing on a rail fence! (He jumped off before I could get a shot that showed the fence more clearly... we will try again!) ...

A little drama right at sunset last night. I always pray to be with my dogs if those last golden rays of light break through like that. ...

I love it when they smile in their sleep. #anthropomorphicanimals ...

Best result from several attempts to get six dogs to stay still for one minute ...
