Are you a runner? Do you race? Do you already run with your dog at home?
Maybe it’s time to consider a dog friendly road race. I’ve been thinking about doing this with Lulu. We wouldn’t be running for competition, but more for fun. Lhasa Apsos are not

My blogging absence this week has been with reason.
Last Thursday this little lady came into our lives….
We adopted her from the Cleveland APL. She is a 2-year-old Lhasa Apso/Mix. We are not sure on the mix but our
