Mr. Bones the Alaskan Malamute , we got him as a teeny bundle at 8 weeks old, he is now 2 and the absolute love of my life . He is such a gentle giant. And my little lady, cookie. She is 3 1/2 and is mostly Jack Russell we think. She came to us via my husbands work in the police. She was found at about 3/4 months old in a park, dirty, starved, and abandoned . She is my little fluffy princess. I also have 3 cats – Sassy (7) , Dinah (3) , Pickles (months)

Take yesterday, for example.

We went for a walk on our new route. It’s a new route because a certain dog one day refused to walk the old route any longer.  Our new route takes us down the sidewalk beside a busy street.
