The dogs have finally mellowed and enjoy pats and rubs from the boys. But even so, it’s pretty unusual for them to lie still long enough for a good patting session with the boys. Either they get fed up and walk away, or the boys get bored and look for something more exciting to do.

Now that Kitara’s long term meds are working, she’s also enjoying rubs more because they don’t hurt as much…

These photos of Connor and his quiet moment with Kitara were taken with this month’s theme of quiet light in mind
