Puppy Love

Spring has sprung in Texas, and this year, it's lasted an unusually long time. The weather has been absolutely delicious (albeit a bit dry), so my pup Mindy and I have been spending as much time as possible at the unofficial dog park near our house. I've seen many a spectacular sunset there in the last few weeks, like this one:

and this one

Despite the lack of rain, a few wildflowers have braved the trampling of enthusiastic dogs to grace the dog park, as well. Most of the bluebonnets this year have been rather sad and scrawny, but a little rain this weekend seems to have plumped these guys up a bit:

I've also watched a little love affair blossom between Mindy and a shepherd mix named Frankie. Frankie generously overlooks Mindy's overblown sense of enthusiasm and enjoys showing Mindy all his favorite spots in the park. Here's a shot I took of them today, sniffing something particularly interesting together. I had to resist the urge to Photoshop their little tails into a heart shape above them. OK, not really, but aren't they cute together?


  1. What a wonderful blog! The photos are fantastic. The shot of Mindy and Frankie, with the golden sunlight throwing them into dramatic silhouette, is worthy of a Hollywood movie.
