Winter. The first day was stormy. It wasn’t a heavy rain. But, it lasted all day and night. The dog who sees stuff wouldn’t go out except to do what she needed to do. The rest of the dogs acted about the same way. If I wasn’t so lazy I would have gone to the […]

She’s used to stopping while I make a picture. The others aren’t. We have about five general routes that we take. Sometimes, we take a […]
