I was in the first place I truly learned the meaning of natural beauty as a child,
spending time in my wooden tent on the Lake,with some people I love dearly, and getting ready to spend a few days alone enjoying the pace of nature...
when I received a call from a dear friend in need. Suzanne was facing letting her 10 year old Old English sheepdog, Sam, go, as his body was no longer able to contain his special spirit and he was in a lot of pain.
Suzanne was blessed to find a veternarian who came to the house to help pet parents and the animals themselves through this part of life's journey.
So this amazing dog, who has attended kindergarten everyday with teacher Suzanne and brought incredible joy and love to so many, was surrounded by love and friends as he took his last breaths here.
I feel so grateful that I was just 2 hours away and could make the drive to be here for my friend. Life sure works in magical ways...
So today, I head back up north for some more family time, a visit to Miss Katie and Thomas before their new school year starts, and back to the lake to soak in the last days of August 2013.
Big Love !
