If I have learned anything from this journey, it’s to make sure I don’t forget the people in my life that might need the gift of time.
My dreams were scattered all over the place. What I had hoped for was not materializing. Expectations of next steps were falling flat and I felt stuck. I had recently experienced some success, and now the winds had stopped blowing. To distract me from myself, my husband and I went on a camping trip toContinue reading “When the Winds Stop”
Vern looked up from the back seat and began to whimper. Was he distressed or just didn’t understand where we were going without his sister Bee. As much as he enjoyed being with us, it appeared that he just couldn’t figure out why she was left behind. We would have thought Vern would love theContinue reading “Vern’s Idea of Contentment”
Both the seeds and my puppy have their own unique purpose.
Poor Carl. He has been removed once more. First he was taken from his home where he resides as the king and taken to my daughter’s home for the week we were on vacation. After spending less than two days with her family, he was taken to doggy daycare to finish out his days untilContinue reading “Void Spaces”
I walked in the door after being away for a day and Carl was there to jump up and welcome me.

It doesn’t matter how long he and my husband go or even what the temperature is. Just call Carl’s name and follow itContinue reading “A Walk For Faith”

After going out into the hall and literally pushing him inside, it was clear our pooch needed support to enter. Once inside and on his bed, he was shaking uncontrollably. Carl, who stands only aContinue reading “The Wall of Insecurity”
Carl looked up at me and then turned toward the door and pranced out with my husband for his daily walk. If he could talk, he would say something like, “If you want to come with us, that is okay, but it doesn’t matter to me.” When he takes to the streets, Carl makes itContinue reading “Us and Them”
Carl hardly ever has his eyes totally closed when I am nearby. He is constantly on alert for any unusual movement I make. I think Carl wants to make sure he doesn’t miss out on anything fun or entertaining. No matter if he is in his bed, on the couch, or lying down on theContinue reading “Carl’s Great Escape”
