Busy Busy

We’ve been up to so much lately that I don’t have time to really post about it all. I’ve been spending a lot of time with the kids helping them with their work. Let’s see if I can summarize what the pups & I have been up to….

It sounds like it’s going to be really ‘interesting’ and fun. LOTS of really active 4-6 month old pups…BC, Belgian Sheepdog, Lab, etc. Then Mesa & […]
