their last days

autumn glow

How beautifully leaves grow old.  How full of light and color are their last days. 
~John Burroughs


Yesterday I carried Gypsy to the deck window so she could watch the leaves blowing in the wind.
It made me think of this photo I took of her on the deck last fall. I remember watching her chasing the leaves around, making a leaf kill as needed. I ran to get my camera and got this stunning shot of her.
I'm so glad to have it.

  1. choke!!! this post gets me a little achey, laney xo

    1. Kati - Awwww, thanks! I was pretty down about Gypsy last week, but she had a great weekend and is eating better again. Good days, bad days...I have to keep that in mind. xo

  2. Laney, I hope Gypsy is ok... It made me sad to read your post.
    I have a cat and 2 dogs, and seeing them grow old so fast is hard for me.
    They are part of our family, like Gypsy is for you. This shot is really great. Send you my best wishes.

    1. Celine - Thank you! She is doing a little better. Last week when I made this post she was getting weak, but over the weekend she starting eating great and even playing a little. It is hard watching them grow old so fast. I don't have children so they're like my babies! xo

  4. oh this shot of Gypsy is so beautiful!!!
