Business As Usual
Once upon a time, there was a mum who's dog she was training was attached to her hip. She realized it had been awhile since her puppy had used the facilities out in the back yard so took her puppy out to take care of 'business'.
The mum walked out the door, walked into the yard, looked up, and was breathless by what she saw. The heavens were on fire and their brightness was reflecting off of the mountains and the fall colors of the leaves that could be seen even from a distance.
The mum stopped her puppy mid 'business' and ran her back inside to grab her camera as she knew moments like these are but fleeting. She tossed (not literally) her puppy in it's kennel and began snapping photos knowing that she wouldn't be able to capture what she was seeing with the naked eye and feeling but wanted to attempt capturing a piece of it.
The moment has passed, and thankfully, puppy waited patiently with crossed eyes and legs for the mum to take her back outside to finish. Some things, you just have to grab at the moment and pray others and puppies understand.
