I can’t get enough of the weather northern Arizona has been experiencing these past few weeks! Though Sedona was rainy most of the weekend, the sun came out Sunday morning, creating stunning reflections in these red rock pools.
Let me hear YOUR opinion on this one, do you keep the walls blue and look into another color? 🤔
Getting that perfect color scheme in a home can be difficult. Look for neutral colors that can easily flow between rooms.

♥️Each of us has met a rescued dog that is quiet or shy. Often, we hear that a gregarious dog makes the best pet.
Fact is, dogs that slowly open up after considering whether to be “friends” often make the best, most solid, lifelong companions! It’s often the shy ones who have the capacity to zero in on our hearts and minds and demonstrate true #heartdog traits – once we demonstrate that we’re consistent and loving. Like Sailor’s solemn expression in this photo, many rescued dogs appear troubled or uncomfortable when first meeting a new human. (For the record, Sailor is polite, obedient, and HILARIOUS!)
Fact is, dogs live in the now. Because we work with our dogs day in/day out, we become a constant for them, and they bloom. The outgoing ones feel satisfied when they learn new things and practice good manners. The shy ones unfurl and show devotion and joy – and we well know that they don’t always show that side of themselves to a new acquaintance!
Before you dismiss a rescued dog as being disengaged or believe that it doesn’t “take to you” please let them get to know you a bit!!
BDR adopters often spend significant time with a shy dog prior to bringing them into their home to begin the foster-to-adopt period. Getting to know each other facilitates the adjustment!
#fosteringsaveslives - By fostering, you can help a shy dog acclimatize to family life and find their new home more quickly (thereby helping us to save more dogs!)
