Joyous Adventure

 There are so many things that we can learn from dogs. In so many ways they are much better at living life than we are. Since I live with three of these incredible critters I feel that I need to honor the lessons that the provide by sharing my experiences with my babies. Today's lesson is one of the most obvious. Be present. Enjoy

Welcome Home Leo

So sorry for the lack of communication lately, I have been very busy lately getting puppy prepared. We are so excited to welcome Stella del Nord Tolstoy's Greatest Work, Leo for short, into our pack. The greatest Christmas gift ever! He has been a pure joy so far, and is fitting well into our little family. I can't wait to share lots of

Christmas Journey

What a wonderful journey we were able to make this holiday season! We had been looking forward to this trip and counting down the days for many weeks. It was a long drive and we encountered every kind of winter weather imaginable on the roads, but I would drive it a thousand times over and still have nothing but joy in my heart.

A Celebration of Life

What a wonderful day to spend on the beach with the girls. The last couple weeks we have been preoccupied trying to care for their brother. There wasn't a lot of fun to be had for them. Fighting the sadness so I could give the girls could have a little joy this afternoon. Their incredibly happy faces and pure joy of having the whole beach

My Beautiful Boy

Those of you that have known me for a long time know that I process best by writing my way through the tough times that life throws at us. So, today is a tribute to our beautiful baby boy. I hope there are millions of Timberdoodles where you are today Rocky. My first memories of Rocky were him trying in every way to

Aging Gracefully

It breaks my heart watching my big girl get older. She, on the other hand, doesn't give it a second thought. More importantly she doesn't let the concept of age get in the way of living her life. From her first moment she has lived every moment to the fullest. Every moment is precious and deserves our full attention. Get the number out

Our baby boy has been plagued by hip problems and arthritis for years. He moves gingerly and takes care of himself most of the time. However, when it comes to hunting, nothing will stop him. Sore joints, cuts requiring 13 stitches, we have watched him hunt through his regular soreness as well as a long list of in process injuries. Rocky is a

Unconditional Love

I absolutely adore all three of my fur babies, but there is something about Tess that really pulls at the heartstrings. I try not to play favorites, but it is so hard when she looks at me just so and cuddles so sweet. She truly is a momma's girl. We have successfully pulled off a bird hunting trip where daddy took the bird

Finding the Stillness

I recently read an article about finding moments of silence and grabbing on. The reader was encouraging people to seek out silence. Silence actually doesn't work for me. I prefer to seek out stillness. I love sound. The sounds of life going on around me. The other night there was a power outage in our area. Within moments of the fan turning off

Following your Heart

One of my favorite things about fall is the opening of small game season. I have never been a hunter, I leave that up to my husband. I just go along so that I can see the raw unadulterated joy in the hearts of my fur babies as they do what it is that they know with every fiber of their being they
