  • Just taking more walks in the spring time has me excited for this time of year! I feel like I’m more active with my dog in the spring.

  • While we did have a pretty mild winter, it was still too cold for taking the long walks my dogs love to go on. Now that spring is finally here and the weather is nearly perfect, it’s time to get back outdoors. Walks, or just playing with my dogs in our yard. We have three cats, two of who take turns on the window seat where they watch bird- or squirrel-TV. They even watch the dogs playing in the yard. My cats don’t go outside though. They’re happier and healthier indoors.
