My Love Loves Me

The other day as I stared into my dog's eyes which never, ever seem to blink, I thought I should have named him Love.   Yes, that does seem like a weird name except I was rehearsing for a concert and the song was My Love Loves Me. See where I'm going?   I sing [...]

From Shy to Cuddly

A few months ago we got a dog in that was named Kennedy. We see a lot of shy dogs but Kennedy could have won the blue-ribbon shyness award.   My grandson loves to come in and play with the dogs and one Saturday we met Kennedy. This little dog would not come out from [...]

Good Monday morning to our wonderful community.   Some of you are bummed because your Packers did not win. But I hope you had fun watching the game with your friends so that has to count for something.   If you are like me, some of you are worried about how to pay a big [...]
