I deeply pity the person who does not love this face.
Today Shadow’s owners had to make the hard decision to let him go. He had lost all use of his hind legs and could barely get around anymore. He would scoot around, pulling himself by his front legs. It was a very sadÂ sight to witness.Â Honestly, he was able to live longer than I expected. Shadow was such a sweet dog, he will be greatly missed.
I love this image because it capturesÂ Shadow before he was unable to stand. He looks so regal and calm, standing guard over his yard.
For my whole life, my mom has referred to newborn babies that she sees in the store, in the mall, or at restaurants as “fresh”. They’re new, tiny humans. Kind of pink. Completely amazing.
When I saw these two infant rabbits in my neighbor’s yard, the first word that popped into my mind was “fresh” (thanks, Momma). And they were. Their little eyes weren’t even open and their ears were so tiny, you could hardly tell that they would become long rabbit ears. There is nothing like seeing a new baby, human or animal, and I was totally smitten with these two.
I was also a little bit shocked because they were left out in the open, not hidden away in a warm nest. The mom was seen hanging around earlier, so hopefully she will return soon to hide her babies in a safe little burrow.
I dare you not to smile or make some kind of baby-talk when you see these. :)
Oh, sweet little baby bunny feet!
The baby on top was a rambunctious little guy. I felt bad for his sibling, the little guy kept getting sat on and shoved aside!
The yawning series is my favorite. I was so happy when I got these shots! (Please excuse the blur.)
So sweet. :)
Check out the little nub of a tail! Aw!
