    1. Thank you so much for your kind words Vicky πŸ’œ When we first adopted him his instinct was to run away from most things. It was lovely to see him dig a little deeper and find the courage to retrieve the ball and figure out how to do this without pushing the ball through the ice β˜ΊπŸ’–πŸ• xxx

    1. Thank you Kim! There is a thin layer of ice on the lagoon which makes it appear very blue. Eivor had dropped his ball to sniff something when it rolled onto the ice. He had never encountered thin ice before and was not sure at first as he walked through it. He seemed to think about it before he returned to retrieve the ball and he did well to catch it without pushing it through the ice. When we first adopted him he ran away from most things and it was lovely to see how he thought about this and found a solution :o) xxx

  1. OMG, Xenia! I am so touched. Elvor is quite courageous – what a shining example of letting go and trusting his inner fortitude when stepping into a new situation. A true spiritual warrior. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ I really relate to this. Thank you so much. I’m honored to share this post for Forgiving Fridays tomorrow. Blessings to all!! Debbie
