The 2nd shot is also on my other blog http://anitaitalienne.blogspot.com/2012/09/very-slow-sunday.html . It's from our back yard where Gray occasionally hangs out, but only when Lia-dog isn't interested in popping through the doggie door to give a half-hearted chase.
I really believe Gray came to us for a reason. We have now met Ashley, Billy Boy and Chris, Austin and Yogi Berra, deepened our connection with Addie and Chaquita with more new neighbors to come. Besides, encouraging me to take more "slow life" time, read, write, watch butterflies and the sunset, Gray's appearance is creating community within my neighborhood.
