Winter comes. It arrives in its own time – sometimes early; sometimes late.
Winter has finally arrived in the Memorial Garden,
first, with the return of cold and wind…
much-needed rain. Nothing like the winter that family and friends are experiencing east of us (brrrr). Still, it leaves more time for dogs – and one of my favorite “jobs” at Homeward Bound: going home photos.
Saturday, it was Rover’s day…
and Bandit’s, too.
And then, there was a different photo request: for Cody.
Cody is in hospice care. He has cancer though out his body. His people took him home to spoil and love. Now, he is three weeks past his expected winter – and still enjoying life, admittedly at a little slower pace.
It was my honor to fulfill his people’s wish for photos. And to watch him rest in the garden as he watched the world go by.
Winter comes – for all of us.
In its own time.
But not today.
