For the weekly photo challenge, Cheri Lucas Rowlands wants us to show our interpretation of grand.
Someone had shaved our Keeshond before we adopted him four weeks ago and initially he was not happy when I pointed the camera at him. With love, frequent grooming, and a better diet including fish oils, his fur is growing back. Do you see how happy he is this week? He is even showing his silly side. His paw is better too with short walks and a glucosamine supplement. My Golden and I think that is grand; don’t you?
This week Ben Huberman requests, “IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO THAT FEATURES A LIGHT SOURCE.”
Multiple sources of light in Honolulu:
May be a dinner cruise?
Catching early morning ride.
Ben also reminds us that we are entering a truly light-filled season, so I wish each of you Happy Holidays
whether you celebrate Hanukkah, Christmas, Bodhi Day, or something else.
I’m grateful that I have been to Fantasy in Lights at Callaway Gardens twice over the years while visiting my family for the holidays.
Rudolph is still one of my favorites at Christmas despite recent controversy. I always looked forward to seeing it when I was younger. I love Burl Ives and I’ve always loved, “There Is Always Tomorrow.” I think it is important to continue to believe in our dreams. Don’t you?
My Golden did not expect to see an angel in his yard since he wasn’t outside when I placed it there.
Unexpectedly adopted this guy 2 weeks ago.
Finding this Keeshond at the Hawaiian Humane Society was an unexpected joy. They normally only have Pit Bull or Terrier mixed breeds. There are no Keeshond breeders on the island either. He was found wandering in a business area. They took him to the Humane Society after no one claimed him. I have checked Internet sites to see if anyone is looking for him and so far no one appears to be.
The day before we adopted him is the first time I have been on their site since our Corgi died. I did not feel we were ready for another dog yet, but something made me check the site anyway.
Finding the Keeshond’s picture and information touched my heart. I quickly phoned my husband to convince him.
After leaving a message asking if the dog was still available on the Humane Society’s voicemail, I took my Golden outside where a rainbow appeared over my Corgi’s burial site. I took it as a sign that he blessed my decision.
A voicemail the next morning revealed that the Keeshond was at a pet store site for the day. I called the store to make sure no one had adopted him, and we loaded our Golden into the car to go meet our latest addition.
My Golden is happy that the Keeshond is not interested in his ball.
Maybe our angel sent him because after all:
I brought this ornament for our Corgi’s first Christmas.

I hope future generations are able to see the beauty of layers of ice and snow.
