Watching my little pups act like "real dogs" always tickles me. They go charging the front fence after the mailman, people on bikes, and the pitbulls next door. Never said they were smart! Those dogs' heads are as big as my pups - good thing the... Read more

Had a nice 5 mile walk with the pups this evening. All three of them kept up with me - didn't have to carry Spartacus at all, Shalako didn't do her "I'm soooo tired - oh, a cookie!" act, and Samurai only lunged at a couple of bicycle riders (sig... Read more
