Images of Spring Branding

Even though my only jobs were organizational and to holler the cows into the corrals, I am too tired for words. And a little sad. Our old dog Smokey's tummy grew exceptionally large this week and the diagnosis from the vet was fast growing tumors. I have no idea how people manage watching their loved ones bodies change so rapidly from cancer, I am having a hard time and its only a dog.

  1. Great pictures. Sorry about your dog -- "only a dog" -- I wish that were true. It might make it easier.

  5. Hugs for you and a pat for your companion. We lost our Stormy a few years ago. I still miss her.

  6. There's not such thing as "only a dog", so don't beat yourself up about being upset.

    I love the pictures of branding day; looks like a lot of hard, hot work, but also looks like a lot of fun.

  8. Whew I had a bit of reading to do to get caught up. I enjoy your posts I think you live in such a beautiful place. I'm just going to leave a little comment about the posts. the branding looks like there was a good crew. Sorry about your dog....just a dog .....I don't think you really think that.Loved you running commentary on your walk - jog, you didn't need a camera you described everything so well. Loved Trinity's story very cute. I still love that tree it looks the same to me, at any rate it is gorgeous.Well I think that's it.
