It's Autumn, and with this season comes spooky treats and a chance to count our blessings, to promote an attitude of gratitude, to be thankful.

I'm always Thankful for my family, which includes my collies.  I dreamed of having a collie of my own one day, and now I am surrounded by them.

I'm Thankful for the new experiences my collies have brought into our lives.  I'm grateful for the opportunity to travel across the country with my daughter for the Collie National, multiple times.  And I'm thankful for the weekends where we attended local shows together.  Raising our collies and showing them was something we did together, as a team. (And still do) It also helped me create wonderful friendships with other collie owners, and to learn to compete in various dog sports.

And I am especially Thankful that my Abby is doing better, and that she seems to be feeling better.  We can't fix what time has done, but because of my daughter's job at a veterinary hospital, we can keep her happy and comfortable for as long as possible.
