Three golden retrievers smiling

The girls love being outside in the summer, and you can see from this image that they are pretty content indeed. We enjoy growing wildflowers in the back, especially patches for butterflies and hummingbird, and these make for some beautiful backgrounds when we can get the girls to cooperate.

We know the monarchs and ruby throateds are happy this time of year as they drop by for a visit and get some energy for their journeys.

And the girls, they’re also quite happy this time of the year. In fact, they’re happy most of the time, except for maybe when we leave the house, or when they have a vet appointment and have to skip breakfast, or when they don’t quite catch that squirrel. Overall, they’re just happy with the journey, and that’s what it’s all about.
