Face of a Sensitive Soul

Oh, Sinna. We remember those icy blues and uncertainty the first time we met her. How patient her parents were while they were getting to know her and help her overcome her separation anxiety. Then, we remember how happy she was to see us when her family trusted us to work on her leash skills… View more

Face of a Gentle Giant

We met this 90-pound huggy hound back in 2011. Bo just loved everyone so much that he wanted to throw his entire body on every person he met. He has so much joy to share. Poor, tender Bo does not understand why people cross the street when they see him coming. He would not hurt… View more

Face of a Survivor

We watched Jax romp and play without even glancing over his shoulder in puppy school every time his dad said his name and worked really hard to teach him NOT to scale trees after EVERY squirrel in the neighborhood.

In that case, we automatically assume they share the same temperament because that dog is also fluffy, short, muscly, floppy-eared, has a mustache,… View more

Smell the Flowers

Smell the Flowers

Two days before Christmas, I felt every jagged rock under my boot as I tried catching my breath. My nephew, Isaac, was racing ahead. His long legs moved effortlessly up the steep incline. Gavin was captivated by fluttering leaves, squirrels springing from limb to limb and trees, glorious trees. My brother, Chris, and I chatted… View more
