    It's been awhile, so I just thought I'd post an update on my guys, and of course some new photos! Well, some will be kind of old - from this past winter. Rhaegar had his TPLO surgery for an injured cruciate in February, and Dany followed suit 4 weeks later, so that's pretty much what we've been up to for the past 4 months - recovery. But they have both recovered well and are off exercise restriction and back to loving farm life. Rhaegar turned 5 in May (how did that happen??!). I was so, so, so worried about adding another dog to the home, but he and Dany are very close. He tolerated so much more from her than he EVER would from any other dog. We've expanded our little goat herd, and after 3 of our moms kidded this spring, we are up the 14. My kitty Juno threw a clot to one of her legs and was diagnosed with end stage heart failure 2 months ago, but she has responded well to treatment, and we're treasuring every single day we have with her.

    BEAUTIFUL!!!!! My husband and I were spellbound by your photography. (Hubby is wondering what camera you have?) You are truly an artist. And the pups look marvelous. Your farm looks like heaven on earth!

    Keep the pics coming...and let me know about your camera.

    Thank you! The camera is a Canon EOS Rebel T5i that my husband got for my birthday a few years ago. I've been meaning to take photography class, but I can't seem to find time. I have to take LOTS of pictures to get a few that turn out well.

    Also not dog related at all, but I thought I'd share a few photos of our trip to Iceland. Trip of a lifetime, but also the first and last time I'm leaving the corsos, lol. It was too hard!

    As always, your pictures are the best and you have the luckiest animals in the world. Seriously. They're always doing something with you and it's great. I also see that you're still choosing the Front Range much of the time. It's the one I always end up going back to as well. I hope Juno is still doing well. And wow! I just scrolled back up and saw your Iceland pictures. Beautiful.

    Thank you! Yes, I've tried lots and lots and lots of other harnesses, and the Front Range is still my favorite. Rhaegar's is over 4 years old and is still in good shape despite the constant abuse we put it through. Juno also seems to be doing really well (aside from two separate bouts of a really strange allergic reaction to something, we're still not sure from what). I was so scared to leave her and come on this trip, but she's been remarkably well managed on her medications. Her 9th birthday is in a couple weeks, so we'll have to celebrate big. A few more photos from our trip:

    Absolutely love...Love...LOVE the pictures, especially (had to choose my favourite) the last one...it is a classic! These must be the luckiest dogs in the world...lots of interesting and varied experiences...mountains to seaside and home to pondside and all the critters. Best Doggie Mom Award coming!
