Just a quick note...sharing a photo of part of my back yard...I love the flame orange deciduous azalea in the back....looks yellow in the second photo with my old doggie.
This is my 15 1/2 year old Shih Tzu, Chuckie. He is totally blind in one eye, according to the vet, and can only see our the side of the other eye. That's why he looks like he is turning his head to ignore you, but really, he is looking at you because he can only see out that side! So sweet and spoiled. He had his physical and the doc said if he had not been told he was that old he would never have known it from the blood work. Thank goodness...he is the last little man in my life and want to keep him around as long as he is happy to be here.
I have the corner I was sitting in filled with a bamboo love seat and a doggie bed, and soon with a tiny table. I'm finding, though, that the morning sun is now coming up as to where it hits that area, so plan to get some shade put up back there...a Sunsetter shade or one of those big round things....something!
Hope this finds you in sunshine and good weather for the days ahead!
