Good bye Skye Puppy

Our dog died this morning at about 3:30 am I know this because I heard her barking and then she gave out a little yipe and a whine and I heard her collapse in her kennel. Being the middle of the night and I was half asleep I didn't get up to investigate, much less make much sense of it. But this morning Justin told me she had died. 
Today we are going to remember her as the happy little social butterfly that she was. 
 Instead of wasting little bits of meat that are left over after dinner, I cut it up and feed it to the dogs from a fork. Surprisingly they know exactly how to eat off of one. 

 She was not very active but every once in a while she would find a stray sock and attack it. 

 She loved to go for a ride for all of 30 seconds and then she wanted to be done. 

 At the lake sitting on a wave runner.

   Camping. She was a happy camper and loved to visit other campers. 

 She always followed me everywhere I went. 

 Apparently she wanted to go to Hawaii? 

 Happy girl!

For the last year or so this has been her favorite spot. Under the sofa. She slept a lot this last year, she had cataracts, her teeth were falling out and she was getting skinnier all the time, but you couldn't tell because she had so much hair. 

I think all dogs go to heaven, see you there one day skypup!

July Photos of the month

So much has happened in this last month that I can barely wrap my mind around it. It has been a busy month to be sure. Lots of  fun was had by all. There have been some life changing events as well.  However I am going to let the pictures do most of the talking, because I am one tired girl!

Newly decorated bedroom, This used to be a room for J's hobby stuff. You could not even walk in this room! I don't know how he was even able to work in there and enjoy it. But now it is a cute room fit for a teenager. E painted the lamp shade. 

Art I made for the room. 
It says: 
{LOVE} It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres, Love never fails.

My favorite stop in Idaho.
 Crystal clear waters, Cold, Crisp, Beautiful. 
I may or may not be inspired to write a haiku about it. 

More photos from our river rafting trip in Idaho.

Elyssa drew this dragon and framed it. It was auctioned off at the family reunion for $20. Now her confidence is up and I have seen a dramatic increase in her desire to draw, and her skill level. She is pumping out those sketches!

 Ah Dixie! Such a sweet little girl, well as long as she knows who you are!
