River received the duck as a gift for her second birthday. All the other dogs like to borrow her for a snuggle now and then, whenever River’s not looking!
I missed Jazz in last week’s photos; he wasn’t very cooperative, and all his pictures were blurry. So I ’ve dedicated a post to him. He’s about 95% blind, deaf, arthritic, and almost 16 years old. He had a melanoma removed a couple of months ago and is […]
It has been an intense few weeks here as we navigate through Thanksgiving and my husband and I work diligently to redecorate our 5th-wheel trailer. It’s only a year old, but the dark browns and yellows started to get to us, so we are changing the window coverings, […]
