Below, Keeper with lots of energy as a cancer survivor!!! That's the Kananaskis Range behind her. Our easy access to this place closes for the winter today . . . . . we have to add a half hour to our voyage by another route until May. But we'll be back.

Gorgeous pictures as usual Rick! And Keeper is looking good. The hair seems to be growing back nicely. Did she stay in the water long? Brrrrrr I love looking at pictures of your dogs enjoying their wonderful life.

. Did she stay in the water long? Brrrrrr

I watch them closely, but frigid water doesn't bother them for a fairly long time but, like anything, it would eventually catch up to them. So we move on fairly quickly at this time of year.

Below, from today, Keeper silhouetted on the ice of Chain Lakes.

I don't have that one framed . . . . . . but Abby and Keeper were asked to donate a framed picture to a charity silent auction last week.

This one from a year ago, a walk to Chester Lake in Kananaskis with the snow falling and the sun shining, altered to look like a painting, is the one they donated to auction and fetched $200 for charity.

Rick, as always, your pictures leave me speechless.

It's wonderful to see Keeper back on the trail with you and Abby. I love the picture with both of them walking next to each other. That's just beautiful.

I gotta vote along with everyone else. Those last two pics of them together just tug at the heartstrings. :cloud9:
And I am so glad they don't stay in that water long. It makes me shiver even looking at it. :rolleyes:
I remember that picture you donated from last year. I remember thinking how it kind of puts everything in perspective. We are just a small speck on this big, beautiful world. I love it!! Priceless in my eyes.

I don't know you very well but I have seen some of your threads, I'm glad Keeper is doing much better! That pic with him and Abby walking side by side made me tear up a little :o

Good luck to you, Keeper and Abby :goodvibes: :thumbs up !
