But then... along came Annika. A different kind of dog & yet - there was something about her, something that we recognized? An independence, a happy outlook on life, a way of smiling when she sees us. Without any way of knowing - she somehow seemed to sense what was missing. Rascal has been training her of course, in his way - but there are some things... The way she seems to like the same special spots in the yard, a little of the look - when she runs to greet us, just to see that flash of gold again when I'm walking the woods.
This afternoon though - when I looked out to see, then grabbed the camera to capture the moment - it's a picture of life here on the Homestead making a full-circle. A good day, a fresh, sweet breeze from the cleansing, welcome rain of last night~
