A Few Pics From The Last Month or So

It has been a very trying month, but there have been some good times, too. I'm choosing to concentrate on those for now. Our trip to Massachusetts in April was a sad occasion, as most of you know. But during that trip there were some surprises such as a bit of wild turkey, a squirrel and someone wearing Big D's vest. Right after we got back from our sad trip to Massachusetts, we had to go to Yuma for BACA's annual 100-mile-ride. I didn't really want to go, but knew we had to. It turned out to be a great trip, even though we had to take the cage. After returning from Yuma, we added a new member to our family. His name is Springer and he's the cutest. He's only 7 weeks old, but he's a little shit already! I hope you all enjoy the pictures. The music is not my usual choice, but it stirred something in me. If you don't like it, turn down your volume.

Hey Ann...great to see a post from you. The pictures are great! As I was watching and listening to the soothing music a cool breeze came through the window here. It made me feel like I was there with you in spirit. I hope that your sorrow becomes less and less with each passing day.

Hugs - IHG

ps...Springer is a cute little shit! :)

Great pics! I love Springer, he is too cute! He reminds me of a cat I used to have named Monster.
I think the music was perfect for the mood.
Just keep on focusing on the good things, I know it's hard, but just keep that chin up to the sun! We all love you sister!

Ann the music was perfect. Springer is a great name for the little shit, but Big D must be nuts letting that thing hang on his chest without a shirt. Them young ones have really sharp claws.

I hope your days continue to improve, but know they will go up and down. still saying a prayer for you.

Nice pics, and yes, I appreciate the ones "especially" for me. Cute cat, the name is um....catchy.

It still doesn't wanna warm up here - my ride got rained out this morning. It's partly sunny now of course, but still very c-o-o-l. I need some warmth!

Very nice! I thought your choice of music was... Perfect.

Springer looks cute as shit! I love him! Me reminds me of our Romeo when he was that little. Romeo weighs in at 17 lbs. now. (Hoss!)

I'm glad to see your post... give yourself a hug. :)

I could see the gears in Big D’s head turning while he was sitting on that CVO Springer.

Well, the song was just fine. You don't always have to live life like your hair is on fire.

Enjoyed the peek into the random thoughts world. Pretty cool. Springer looks like he do some damage if you got on the wrong side of him.

LOL @ the wild turkey pic! Cute pics of Big D with the squirrel.

Definitely looks like you had some fun on the ride. Good medicine, I'm sure.

Springer is so freaking cute. That is exactly what my Chihuahua does... snuggling up right under your chin.
