A couple of weeks ago, an innocent game of football went on in the yard. It all started with an orange ball and soon it became four against one. Or 16 paws against two "cross country" running feet. I mean she just bent down to get the orange ball.
And then started to run!
But one of the boys got the ball.
And she got it from him.
Turned and ran!!!
Oh, she must have gotten hot!!!
She got the ball again!!
And a quick turn to free herself from the defenders
Another quick turn!
As I sat and took these pictures, I realize that this is my favorite place on the earth. My family and these dogs are my favorite people!! Okay the dogs are not people but I love them. I love mowing this yard, weeding these flower beds, cleaning this house, washing their clothes, feeding them, and washing these dogs. I loved doing it when my children were little and I still love doing it. Some people say, "Oh I don't want X,Y or Z because it is too much work." I would work 18 hours a day for this family, dogs and home. And to be honest, I have some days.
Mother's Day is a day to honor their mother but really it is I who am honored!!!
