    Can we all get along?

    With apologies to Rodney King, can we all just get along?

  • Mousse at the beach

    Mousse at the beach

    Mousse loves the beach. She gets to be off-leash. She gets to play fetch. She gets to play in the water. She gets to meet other dogs. Did I say she gets to play fetch? What’s not to like? Today, she decided she was going swimming. Well, that wasn’t necessarily the plan, but she was…

Ashley had Mousse join her. Things went swimmingly until Mousse went swimming. Thanks to Mousse’s life vest and its handle, Ashley was able to get…
