All's well that ends well

Thank you to everyone for your well wishes! Malakai's operation went perfectly and other than it being VERY difficult to keep his dressings clean and dry, everything is good! He's running rampant as if nothing ever happened!

On another note, Harlan is now crawling all over the place! He's happier as well with his new-found independence! Full of smiles ans laughs.

This weekend we're going to attempt another little family getaway... Our last experience in March this year was simply aweful - Malakai got pneumonia, Harlan just cried all the time, we left a day early and when I got home my oldest and most precious dog died... Hopefully this time is much better!

We are going to Sabi Sabi just outside the Kruger National Park. Hopefully we'll get a chance to take Darryl's gran to do some game viewing. Darryl's grandad was an honorary game ranger when he was still alive, and I think Darryl's gran really misses the Kruger. It will be nice if we can do this for her!

Otherewise, I am hoping we take lots of long walks and that Malakai loves the freedom of the big open spaces as much as I think he will.

It's SO good to hear about Malakai's quick recovery! And now Harlan is crawling!!! Yay!!!

You've had a heck of a year, Loren, and I do hope your trip is a blast! Enjoy!!!
