The passing of a wonderful pet and companion – Ryka

Today is a sad day for my family. One of our West German Shepherds, Ryka, passed away this morning. She blessed our lives for over six years and for that I am grateful. I pulled out a few of my favorite pictures that tell some of her story with our family. She arrived from West Germany in 2010 and came home with me and Calypso shortly after. She wasn’t Calypso’s mother but she stepped right in…

My Daily Drama – It's all about the dogs!

I think the worst drama today is that it rained – ALL. DAY. LONG. That means I still have not gone for a ride on our boat! Calypso and Ryka were up to their usual squirrel watching. I decided that I really need to find them a rubber squirrel to see what they would do if something actually fell out of the pecan tree next to them. The picture really doesn’t show how hard the…
