Sleepy Time…

I just had to share a fun picture of my sweet hubby and my dog, Maddux.

You might remember me blogging about a mega biking event, Ragbrai, a couple weeks back. Well, part of bike riding 400+ miles in five days is the recovery. Which means lots of naps (like above). 

While Charlie and I are recovered from the bike ride, I think our dogs were recovering from us being gone so long. LOL.  Must be hard on our four-legged friends while their masters are gone, huh? 

So sweet. I just love their unconditional love, you know? 

Dogs rule. 

Do you have a pet? What kind? Do they get extra cuddly upon your return from a vacation? 

Amazing Dog Pictures…

I got this email from a friend a while back. These pictures are CRAZY fun!!

You can click on the picture to see it full size. Holy Moly they are amazing shots.

Loyal friends

I was out jogging one morning. I know, you’re shocked to read this. But I’m going to shock you even more and post a picture that ISN’T a sunrise that I saw while out running.

I know, I’m getting a little wild and crazy with the shock factors.

Check this picture out:

Now, you might be wondering what the heck I’m thinking with this picture. But I’ll tell ya, sometimes, like ideas for books, thoughts just slam right into my brain when I see something interesting.

And this particular morning, this really struck me. Me and my dog out running. His little shadow next to mine. He runs with me all the time (unless it’s too hot in the desert here). He’s always excited to go. Anxious to keep running when I’m heading to the garage to call it quits. When I’m tired, he kind of tugs me along. He’s even known to bite at the leash and pull, urging me forward.

He’s just my loyal running buddy and it hit home when I saw this shadow from the rising sun behind us.

So here’s to you sweet Maddux. Thanks for all the runs you’ve taken with me and will take with me in the future!
