When not traveling in our coach we are at home in Loveland

In October we lost Skye River the Keeshond in the photo above. She was my shadow for 14 years. She will remain in my heart along with all the previous furry babies we have had.

Does one feel quilt when bringing another into the home. There was some quilt along with a full spectrum of emotions. But, in the end love won.

The quote above spoke to me and I find it to be true. As the quote says – a new fur baby expands the heart.

So with happiness and love I would like you to meet Riley and may she expand our hearts for many years to come.

A lovable and sassy 10 week old Keeshond.

Riley, 10 weeks old.

We brought her home yesterday and already she is the queen of the household. If only she would just love being in her crate at night. 😳 A howling baby with a BIG and LOUD mouth isn’t fun in the wee hours of the night.

Riley has her own blog. Follow her at

I went to our local recreation center today for the first time since late February. I went there at least three times a week to play Pickleball and to attend different classes such as Yoga. I can’t begin to tell you how much I missed going. Today, I attended a Yoga class with my favorite Yoga instructor. It was wonderful seeing her and several friends. The Chilson Center is taking extraordinary safety measures. I felt safe!

Stay Safe!
