Getting To Know You ...






A few photos from our weekend hike
Getting to know you
Getting to feel free and easy
when I am with  you,
Haven't you noticed
suddenly I'm bright and breezy
because of all the beautiful and new things
I'm learning about you
~Oscar Hammerstein~

Thank you for all the lovely emails and comments  Welcoming Archer ♥  My friend Kit @ dog daze wrote such a lovely post in honour of Archer (and Ben and Ernie too) which meant the world to me.  I feel blessed to have been able to make so many friendships through & because of my blog. When I first began blogging in 2006 with Posted-from-Home, I had Bentley  and the support and friendship shown when he passed is something I will never forget.  You shared your own stories of pet loss with me too.  Then we adopted our Ernie, who was 11 at the time, and once again, when he passed last May, your notes here and through email were heartwarming & so helpful.  Thank you all so much for Welcoming Archer & stopping by to see what's happening in our little corner of the world ♥

So glad you have a new buddy, Deb. Sorry I haven't been here and you have been blogging away again... haven't been anywhere but at birthday parties and shopping for my kids, but now April is a slower month. I'm really happy for you and Archer. Love the name too!
