zane is three years old today. after we made the morning rounds we had a fun game of "tug and toss" with his kong flyer (a flexible rubber "frisbee"). he's getting pretty good at snagging it out of the air but he mostly likes the tugging part and he seems to also really enjoy whipping it back and forth like he would shake a small animal (he used to catch a lot of ground squirrels and rabbits in the garden at the ranch and i think he misses it---he hasn't been successful at nabbing a tree squirrel yet).
zane's joy and enthusiasm are great reminders to me to slow down and enjoy the present and never take anything too seriously. i'm so happy and so grateful for his companionship.
