airplane ears

I haven't given a Willow update in a while so I thought I'd do that today. If you are new here, the back story is that my beloved dog Willow was VERY sick back in April and we almost lost her. It was a scary time for us but we made it through and she is doing really well!

Today she is walking again all on her own with no problems and she has completely recovered from her surgery. As you can see, she is eating again and putting on her thick winter coat!


It was a very windy day down by the Hudson River when I took these shots last week and her ears were really catching the wind! I thought she might take off at any moment...


Don't you just love the story a close-up image of a face can tell? I am musing about faces over at Mortal Muses today if you want to drop by.  And tomorrow, we'll be having our regular (every other) Friday Mosaic Muse link up for the "faces" theme. If you have a flickr photo or blog post about faces, be sure to grab a button and stop by to link up tomorrow!

Love the soft folds around her neck and chest. Does she a have a little (or a lot) of German Shepherd mixed in?

So happy she is doing better, Christy. Wonderful shots of your girl. :)

His eyes seem to be saying: "You're not really going to take photos of me when I'm having a bad ear day."

Sweet.

Willow is precious - I didn't know the back story but I'm so glad he's doing so well. We have an older dog I was so worried about but who has made an amazing comeback recently, too. It's tough but joyful. That second shot reminds me of the Flying Nun! lol

My dog, Georgia, had to go a minor (very minor) gum procedure just recently and it really breaks my heart when these beautiful creatures get sick.

Take care and hi to Willow :)
