Happy Thorsday, little friday and thankful thursday. Come on long weekend! It’s been a wild two weeks, so let’s walk down memory lane. Or… let’s just look at a couple of photos I haven’t shown you already. They’re bittersweet. I am grateful we had paths, and honestly, I haven’t had time to miss them much. Between travel and annual meetings mixed with unseasonably warm weather… yeah. Not so much walking.
Sis amazes me. Remember, she only has one eye, which means she has depth perception problems… as in she has none. This is a rather typical boat landing; it is nice and shallow for only a couple of feet and then the bottom drops off. But my brilliant, aware, one-eyed girl knows. I always held on TIGHTLY and watched every breath she took while she was in the water, but she KNEW. She can be so very aware… when her nose isn’t too the ground.
See? Maybe some of you reading on larger monitors can even see where the river bottom drops. She knows. She’s a good 10 inches from it, and that’s as far as she EVER went in.
I’m so thankful that we still have her right eye. I’m so grateful for how well she adapted, and thus, how she forced us to treat her as normally as you can treat a dog with more allergies than not, primary (genetic) aggressive glaucoma in that one eye that requires a rigorous maintenance schedule. I’m so grateful that she and Gretchen are both sweet, sensitive girls, and that they came to live with us. They’re entertaining too. As I type, Gg is sprinting, prancing and playing, but evidently a little earlier, she had some thoughts to share.
And I’m glad we’ll be able to settle back into our routine again. Our short heatwave is almost over, and we’ll have a long weekend to make up for lost time, miles, steps.
Anything you’re getting back to, or trying to?
