Here is Cocoa again this year in the middle of my daffodils! She just can’t stay out of them. The color of her fur has changed dramatically since she was a baby. When chocolate Cockers grow lighter, it is called “silvering.” Chip’s breeder told me this a couple of weeks ago. Speaking of Chip—so far, we are on schedule for his arrival around March 14 or 15. We are bracing for an emotional impact!

Below is just one of my favorite views—the sky through the eyes of the trees at Pretty Hill .
