Despite the deep affection and adoration I have for Riley today . . . . it was not always that way. In fact, when we first brought him home, I absolutely hated him. And, I hated Ronnie a little too! But, let me explain. I am not a cruel heartless bitch. On the contrary, my heart was so full of love for our Boxer, Shelby, that I couldn't quite imagine there being enough room in my heart for another. And, for the longest time, I didn't allow myself to love him and I rarely gave him the chance to love me.

Autumn is my favorite season! F. Scott Fitzgerald said, "Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall." And, I believe it! While welcoming fall, instead of seeing life through rose colored glasses, I tend to see life through a calm autumny, orange-ish hue. To me, life gets lighter and less serious in the fall. A time to look forward to cooler weather, the light-heartedness of Halloween, and the anticipation of the Holidays.
