I have decided to return to the “normal” Weekly Video/Photo section of my blog.  As you likely know we lost Shadow about two months ago and I have been focusing this section on Shadow.  However, I have peace knowing I will continue to highlight favorite photographs including Shadow and Buster.  The plan will still be to still display a video or photo, usually highlighting an Adventure, while I might also sneak in some that are humorous, adorable, or just other fun dog moments.

If you have followed my blog from the beginning you will know that I adopted Shadow as a puppy, and about a year later adopted Buster as a puppy.  We had many wonderful years together before experiencing the devastating loss of Buster at just seven.  It took a long time for our hearts to heal, but almost a year later we welcomed little Wilma into our world.  We were recently devastated to loose Shadow on April 3, 2020.  It is so painful to know Shadow and Buster are both gone, but they will be in our hearts forever!

Today’s photograph is a relaxing, and comfy photograph of Wilma. Although we have endless Adventures Wilma enjoys many warm and peaceful naps. She really is just so cute! Here’s my sweet girl!

Throwback Adventure

I have decided to return to posting new “Throwback Adventures” after taking time to re-post some of my favorites with Shadow.  This has been a therapeutic process for me to share.  We are devastated that both Shadow and Buster have both passed, but find peace knowing we can continue to remember them through our “Throwback Adventures”.  They were amazing boys and are forever in our hearts.

I have decided to make some changes to my Throwback section. This is partly because I have had the blog for about two and a half year and each week I have posted an Adventure from before I started the blog. This has become more challenging between finding old photographs, and identifying the location. Although I will still be adding some here and and there I thought I would also use the Throwback Adventure to share past Adventures I have posted. I have new followers, and of course not every follower has been able to view all blogs.

So today I am sharing my blog from The Watch Hill Lighthouse back in July 2019. This was a peaceful, and scenic Adventure that I shared with Shadow and Wilma. The location was on a rocky coastline, surrounded by lovely trails. The Watch Hill Lighthouse was unique, and I found it quite gorgeous. Please see our previous blog for more information and one of my favorite photograph highlights below: July 14, 2019 – The Watch Hill Lighthouse- Rhode Island

Today’s photograph is one of Wilma from Gillette Castle State Park this past Fall. This is a gorgeous park of which I love to explore, and have to resist blogging EVERY time we visit. This photograph was not actually at the castle, but one of the trails on the grounds. It was a beautiful Autumn day and this is one of my endless favorite snapshots on this day of Adventures. Here she is:

Throwback Adventure – Aquatic Therapy – Massachusetts

So today I am sharing a new Throwback Adventure, Buster’s Adventure with aquatic therapy. Buster had knee surgery back in 2013, and from there went through physical therapy, including time on the water treadmill. Although some may not understand a procedure of this nature, he had a complete tear of his cruciate ligament and needed to have this surgery to return to a qualify of life. Although a very stressful time for me, really a “normal” surgery in the dog world. After surgery we did some physical therapy to ensure a successful recovery. We did everything the physical therapist told us to do at home, in the community, and in the sessions. This Throwback blog is specifically of his water treadmill therapy. Buster was such a good patient, and rehabbed well and quickly, soon returning to our Adventures. So glad he had such a supportive big brother in Shadow to encourage him in the process…

Today’s photograph is one of Wilma from this past Saturday at Gloucester’s Fisherman’s Memorial. We have been there numerous times before so it is not a location I blogged about this weekend, however one of our many Adventures of the day. It’s a beautiful statue remembering those fisherman lost at sea. A beautiful stop along our HarborWalk. Here she is:

So today I am sharing my blog from Ashland State Park back in 2018 with Shadow and Wilma. I remember absolutely loving this Park. My favorite parts were the off-leash environment, endless swims for Shadow, a waterfall-like area and a turtle for Wilma. This was actually the only time we have visited Ashland State Park. So glad we have great memories of yet another Massachusetts State Park. Please enjoy this previous blog on Ashland State Park:

Today’s video is of puppy Wilma and Shadow playing back in August 2017. It is just the cutest thing EVER! We had adopted Wilma about one month before and she was around four months, and Shadow age nine. Shadow was so gentle and sweet with her and this video totally melts my heart! I always thought it was ridiculous when people would say one dog keeps another young but over time I really wondered if there could be some truth to it as Wilma’s constant energy made Shadow wag. So glad I have moments like this to cherish forever!

PS – So glad Wilma outgrew her indoor training area quickly!

So today I am sharing my blog from Beede Falls and West Rattlesnake Mountain with Shadow and Wilma back in May 2018. Beede Falls is a unique waterfall in the woods with trails surrounding. West Rattlesnake Mountain is a short hike with amazing views of the Squam Lakes. One of those few times I can say I climbed a “mountain” which really was just a big hill (haha).

If you would like to read our blog on these Adventures please click below. I also will share a photo from each of these locations to give you a quick snapshot. Lastly, I will return to my recent “Throwback Adventures” of which I shared former Adventures and add a video or a favorite photo or two from those locations.

Today’s video is a video from Beaver Brook Reservation in Hollis, Massachusetts with Shadow and Buster. This has been one of my favorite parks over the year, although we have not been there in some time. It is a gorgeous reservation filled with ponds, bridges, boardwalks, and beautiful trails. In this video we are walking on a boardwalk trail, running through scenic wetlands . So nice to find a video of Shadow and Buster together on a wonderful Adventure. I just added it to my original post, which you can see at:

Throwback Adventure – Two Bridges and Chapel Falls Trail – Massachusetts

I have decided to return to posting new “Throwback Adventures” after taking time to re-post some of my favorites with Shadow.  This has been a therapeutic process for me to share.  We are devastated that both Shadow and Buster have both passed, but find peace knowing we can continue to remember them through our “Throwback Adventures”.  They were amazing boys and are forever in our hearts.

In August 2016 Shadow, Buster, My Aunt, My Uncle and I Adventured to the Two Bridges and Chapel Falls Trail in Ashfield, Massachusetts. This Trail is a four mile out and back trail that includes several bridges and a waterfall. Chapel Falls is a series of three cascades totaling approximately 45 feet. The hike to Chapel Falls is less the one mile round trip (part of the Two Bridge and Fall Trail). Chapel Falls is sourced from the Chapel Brook which winds throughout various parts of the trail.

We had a family-filled Adventure to the Two Bridges and Chapel Falls Trail. I do not remember if we walked the entire trail as we did have several Adventure on this day. However I remember loving the unique triangle shaped bridge, Chapel Falls, and of course the boys enjoying some Shadow dips in the Brook. Chapel Falls has been a place I have been interested in returning for some time. It was fun to find these photographs and see such wonderful memories. A fun Adventure in the woods with my favorite boys and some very special company (This blog will not be rated).
