The 52 Week Project is a blog circle with a theme for every week (which means we all link to each other, links are found at the end of the post).

This week's theme for the 52 Week Project was fantasy. Last year Bender encountered a plethora of dinosaurs and a pair of pygmy dragons as we wandered around the woods by the lake. (Read about it here).

This year Axle encountered a pair of drastic transformations from the depths of the cold and dark of winter. His first transformation was a kindred of the light, raising him from the status of a dog to one akin to the leagues of flight (complete of course with his favorite half of a rubbery frisbee). 

The second transformation was a friend of the depths of the darkness and beyond the realm of the sky. He arrives in darkness, a flicker of flames from his underbite, the stars mapped on his wings and legs. His mission: to indulge in the abundance of treats to be had.
