  • Best doggone dog in the West 🐕

When I was five I sat on Santa’s lap and asked for a dog “like Old Yeller”. My mother popped up from behind her camera and said, “No, no! Mommy vetoes that.” Six years later, I wore them down and Tucker, a sweet little black lab joined our family. He wasn’t yellow... but he was mine and we were inseparable. I used to spend all of my free time in the yard, building dog agility courses out of scrap materials from my dad’s garage and assorted patio furniture. We romped in creeks and through fields and snuck  onto the golf course behind our house to swim in the ponds. I taught Tucker how to catch and fetch, how to run through an impressive line-up of tricks and how to play hide and seek. He taught me the joy of loving and training a good dog.

So I guess my parents weren’t totally surprised when I joined Guide Dogs for the Blind As a volunteer puppy raiser. Raising Jenner (aka JB), my first puppy with the organization and my very own Old Yeller (finally), was such a joy. If you’ve been following along, you know JB went to Guide Dog college in January after living and training with me for 14 months. When a small cataract was discovered in one eye, JB was career changed (the polite way to say a puppy in training won’t become a guide dog). The number one question I get as a puppy raiser... well, besides “Can I pet your dog?” (answer: no, not while he’s working)... is “Won’t it break your heart to give him up?” (answer: 1,000x yes). It’s heartbreaking to watch them go to college, heartbreaking to hear the news that your dog, for whatever reason, didn’t make the cut, heartbreaking to figure out what’s next for your baby who has trained his whole life for this one job that didn’t pan out for him. And honestly it probably would have been just as heartbreaking to see him succeed and know I may never see him again.

Being a volunteer for Guide Dogs for the Blind isn’t for the faint of heart. There are ups and downs and times of uncertainty. But when the dust settles and your baby ends up right where he was meant to be, running off leash by your favorite river, you get to smile and remember the joy of loving and training a good dog.

  • Elsô hét✅ Mind edzésekben mind pedig a diétával kapcsolatban!💪🏼
Direkt nem akartam a testemrôl és annak pozitîv változásáról képet, mert elsôdlegesen nem errôl szól az egész. 
Nagyon figyeltem arra, hogy miként fogom érezni magam a bőrömben. Hááát...meglepő!😅😅😃 Ettem amennyit jól esett és amiből a tervezett kereteimen belül akartam, és könnyebbnek, kipihentebbnek érzem a testem a nehéz edzések ellenére. Plusz valahogy mintha jobban is tudna az izomzatom regenerálódni a megfelelő tápanyagbevitel miatt🤭🦋😸🥬🥒🍊🥕🍠🍤🍓 És még csak 1hét telt el☺️☺️☺️☺️💥💥💥💥 OHLALAAA💃🏼💃🏼💃🏼
(Oh, és kérdeztétek a kávét miért nem iszom most. Azért mert így a szervezetem magától jelezheti ha pihenésre van szüksége, plusz a kávé savasít is, amire most nincs szükségem😃🙅🏼‍♀️, viszont ittam egy koffeinmenteset a pihenőnapunkon, ami meglepően jó volt és tudtam aludni is simán tőle😏🤷🏼‍♀️) •

  • Before/After some Snapseed + Lightroom magic. The main goal is editing without tasteless oversaturation.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That’s probably the hardest part because you always think if you scroll up that saturation button it’s gonna look prettier but in fact you are just getting acidic colors and nothing more.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The time spent watching @petermckinnon editing videos was definitely worthwhile.

The winter season often ranges from early December to late March/April. We were extremely lucky to have the best of both worlds with intense sun and perfect snow conditions. Bring on next year! ❄️
