"We must shatter the mirrors.
We must look in to ourselves and root out the distortions

until that thing which we know in our hearts
is perfect and true,
stands before us."

- Garth Stein, The Art of Racing in the Rain

One of my favorite quotes from one of my favorite books, I thought it went nicely with the picture.

Not only is it meaningful to me and my life, but it also applies to my relationship with Trent in everything we do - our ability to see past the faults and frustrations we face on the surface and instead cherish and love what is inside. Neither of us are completely perfect in every single manner, but this dog is true and perfect for me.

Here's to being thankful for our dogs! It may not be Thanksgiving yet, but I don't need a holiday to feel grateful for Trent


  1. Such a great, great book. The whole entire thing is practically one big great quote.

    Nice to see you blogging again. :)

  2. Hi, I just discovered your blog, though it's more than a couple of years since you last updated it... Any chance you'll start blogging more? I'd love to see more pictures of Trent and find out how he's doing! My husband and I have a half-brother of his (same father, Flax). His name is Nigel. He's now 7 months old and wonderful! Best wishes!

  3. Hope you are well mates, wherever you are,
