Birdie Lou

This weekend we are celebrating three weeks of life and love with our new family member Birdie Lou Ellen “Snakebite.” This first set of photos below were taken at the Royaile breeder’s house in Tucson, Arizona, the day we brought her home. We had visited previously when the puppies were only about 5 weeks old. During that visit we met their mother, Twitter, and grandmother, Pumpkin. We also met many other adult and adolescent Welshie’s.   The breeders show many […]

What if I stopped?

Hammock Happy

Forest camping… Being in the forest transcends the written word.  The closest I can get to communicating how I feel, is that an exchange takes place, at a very deep level.  Each time I go, part of me is left there in the forest, and I take part of it with me.  What I take, and what I give is not tangible and it’s not greedy.  It might sound crazy to say that the forest needs anything from us.  Afterall, […]

He can be described as a “Woodland Mogwai.” The forest brings out many things within ourselves if we let it…and I am so glad to have met “Woodland Mogwai,” he is very special and extremely witty. His sense of humor and clever phrases had me laughing harder in a 48 hour period than I can ever […]

Those who love you, will love all of your dimensions…

When I showed my daughter this photograph, I wasn’t sure what her reaction would be. For a child who is almost smiling, singing, laughing to the degree it’s infectious, this moment tells a different side of her. Something deep, fierce, intense and incredibly strong. I was hoping she would share the pride I felt for her in this self-scenario…this portrait. I wondered if she would see her toughness and embrace it along with all of the other wonderful parts of […]
