Ready to run!

After three weeks of trips around the block, I finally got to take the “walk” I’d been waiting for last weekend.  Mom and dad took me down to the San Rafael Valley in southeastern Arizona, home of oak-studded grassy canyons and the Mearn’s quail, a really cool little bird that pointing dogs love.  While I…

Online wanderings…

After handing out gobs of Halloween candy to the neighborhood kids last night, I came back to the computer to check e-mail and do some goofing off.  I’d recently read about a vet in Miami who has a very active blog, and decided to check out Dr. Patty Khuly’s site,  As you may have…
