Our rescue 'dale Trudi is getting braver and braver - today she actually came and lay down in the kitchen while we had lunch! I know that sounds like no big deal, but just a few years ago this dog would run and hide from the clink of cutlery, or a newpaper page turning - any sudden movement or sound would send her to her "happy place" in the basement. It's amazing how even after 4 yrs she's still learning to trust. I'm so proud of her!
This morning Trudi was sitting on the back porch watching Ben play. I watched undetected through the door as Ben came up and sat beside Trudi, whispered sweet nothings to her, hugged and petted her. I wish I had my camera handy, but some moments are only for the heart - that was one of them. Here are some photos of the two of them from last year instead.
Thank God for little boys and dogs!
