Tossing Pebbles in the Stream

This blog is my place to sit and toss pebbles into the stream. The stream of Life relentlessly passing before us. We can affect it little. For the most part I just watch it passing and follow the flow. Occasionally, I need to comment on its passing, tossing a pebble at it to enjoy the ripple affect upon Life's surface.

A New Family Member

This weekend my son and grandson came for a visit to do some chores at the cabin by the river and to show me their new dog. She is a white Labrador Retriever, cute as a button.

Heidi, Travis and the, as yet, unnamed puppy.

I guess the two dog are the long and the short of it. Heidi after easily accepting the new pup was quite willing to share sitting on the swing with her and Travis.

The new pup got a chance to explore a little around the cabin. She even dipped her feet in the river. The pup seems to be well socialized: she is very quiet and gentle and seems to like to follow Travis all around. I am sure the whole family is going to enjoy training this pup and having it in their life.

My son had a chocolate Lab for 15 years and a while back it's life with them came to an end. It was hard on everyone. It seems they are all ready to move on and enjoy this new pup, while having great memories of the life they shared with Hanna.

With the rain we have had this Spring the river is full. Last year after several years of Winter drought it was just a fraction of what it should be as a delightful river. The beaver ponds, marshes, lakes and rivers, even the Great Lakes, are nicely filled with water. We are ready for a sunny and warm Summer.

If she's quiet, she must be the right kind of Lab. I think there are rammy American Labs and a quieter type (of which I forget the name).

What a cute puppy and then Heidi with it ! lol

Pick ups are not practical in Belgium, first there is no need for them and then the streets are so narrow.

Lovely pup and Heidi is just accepting of everyone. She's such a lovely girl.

We have three sons and we have had two dogs -- on the theory that every boy should grow up with a dog.

Oh! What a cute puppy! That's a pretty picture of the river too. Thanks for your comment, I was kidding, I wasen't really 39 (again)...I turned 61 in May. I guess I am grown up, bad as I hate to admit it. lol

The new family member is adorable and I love the juxtaposition of the very large Heidi and the wee one.
The picture of the river is lovely. You'll get much enjoyment there this summer, I'm sure.
