We got this beautiful card, hand painted with love by our dear friend in Georgia, Angela Taylor. It brightened my day so much and it's hanging in our kitchen now. :) Thank you so much, Angela!
To update everyone about Leo, well, he got the stitches out on Thursday and he's been cone collar free since then - happy and healed up and back to living a dog's life. The pictures above are from one of our walks "on the farm". This is up behind my parent's house in a few lots my grandfather rents out to a Christmas tree farmer. The blessing in this is it's a pretty maintenance free crop. Plant them, wait a few years, then selectively cut. It isn't one of those "cut your own" farms. This is just a handful of acres tucked up in the woods. There is never anyone up there. Only a couple times a year will I come across any workers cutting or planting trees. Usually, it's just me and Leo and a visit from the hawks.
I am so happy that Leo is ok. He's still as gorgeous as ever, and our bond is even deeper (if that's even possible). I love that guy so much. I hope good health and happiness is with you and yours, both two legged and four.
