Kolo Loves the Snow


Her face may be a bit grayer these days, but Kolo still delights in playing in the snow. She runs with glee, even with her sore leg. She looks like joy in the clean white. She stops and smells the air, full of animals and possibilities. She is so honest, it is hard not to be totally in love with her.

"I give you this to take with you: 
Nothing remains as it was. 
If you know this, you can begin again, 
with pure joy in the uprooting."
~ Judith Minty, Letters to My Daughters

Close Up


Believe me, getting her to look at the camera, then capturing it, is a big deal.

Time For Breakfast


Sweetheart peeks around the counter, knowing her bowl is being filled with tasty breakfast treats.

In The Moment With Her


I'm working on my journal again and Kolo is supervising. (Keeping me company?)

“Dogs, lives are short, too short, but you know that going in. You know the pain is coming, you're going to lose a dog, and there's going to be great anguish, so you live fully in the moment with her, never fail to share her joy or delight in her innocence, because you can't support the illusion that a dog can be your lifelong companion. There's such beauty in the hard honesty of that, in accepting and giving love while always aware that it comes with an unbearable price. Maybe loving dogs is a way we do penance for all the other illusions we allow ourselves and the mistakes we make because of those illusions.”

Out Back

Kolo out back, surveys her kingdom. Perhaps sees some deer.
