Indie - a gift of love
Indie came into our lives just before Christmas - an offer of a pure bred lab for free was an offer we just couldn't refuse. I've never had a dog before, so it was a huge leap of faith to know that we'd figure this dog thing out!
She is now 5 months and I'm realizing what a gift she is to me. One of my greatest joys is being in the woods but often I am too lazy, busy, (or nervous about bears & cougars!) to go into the woods alone. Having Indie as my new companion brings me out into nature every day. How I love the silence of the woods with the eagles flying over me and Indie by my side.
Here we are taking a walk by the river and you can see the orange Abbotsford/Mission bridge in the background.
