Finally! Great Dog Walking Weather

Tom asking Franklin which way he wants to walk...
We've had winter-time temperatures here in the Mid-Atlantic since the beginning of November,
and finally over the weekend of April 19-20 we had consistently near normal temperatures (although we did get more overnight temps near freezing).
Rob stops with Franklin, Tyler and Dolly
   It was a nice long 1 hour walk around a local science park.That's the best place to take our kids because Tyler goes nuts whenever there's another dog coming, and Dolly tries to "defend" him -so despite training for 1 1/2 years, and a special, expensive personal trainer, Tyler remains a terror to other dogs being walked... so, whenever we see another dog, we turn around. Hopefully he'll mellow as he ages. He's only 4 years old now!
Tyler's tag should say "terror"

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
