Oi and hello! Lukas tried to help me garden today. He snatched two tiny passiflora plants and tried hard to sneak off (mom was watching).

My gregarious little bulldozer accompanied Alyssa and I to the park today and then with us to the local dairy bar (he got gourmet treats for doggies). People encountering him naturally wanted to see him up close. Just a few days ago, Luke would have met them halfway. That is to say, as they would approach, he'd cheerfully go greet. Not today. He hid behind me and cautiously poked his muzzle around my leg juuuuuust enough to see. I picked him up (this is getting to be quite the armful) and he buried his muzzle in my neck.
When the crowd subsided, he resumed his playful stance with Alyssa.

When you are adopted, sometimes tough conversations arise about who you are, how you got to where you reside, and who in the world loves you. During one of those conversations, Alyssa slid off the chair, wrapped her arms around Maya and said, "I'm gettin' some wuv now." The dogs in our lives are sometimes the greatest therapists, the best listeners, and the outstanding loves of our lives.

Lukas has spent the morning on a mission--sinking teeth into everything. His gums are slightly swollen and red. This very cold apple worked beautifully to calm him. Slightly frenetic, teething baby licked, and sunk teeth in and licked some more in a very calm peaceful way. Apples are okay for dogs, apple seeds are not, so I'm watching him carefully.

Pouring rain--the first Lukas has seen since he's been with us. The thunder captured his attention and he looked skyward, looked at me, looked skyward again and his face seemed to say, "Did you hear that? That. Right there. Aren't you going to do something about that? LOL. He actually enjoyed the rain. Sauntered in only after becoming completely drenched.

See this smile? It's genuine. It is. Lukas, Maya, and Liam got to splash in the stream tonight. They wrestled and growled, frolicked and snapped at the stream, and howled happily! They were covered in water, mud, and smiles. Took extra yummy treats to coax them toward the path.
