Digby's new friend

Kitty-corner, or should I say doggy-corner, from our house is Zephyr's house. He's a black lab whose a big galoomp and friendly. Digby took to him right away and whimpers when the Big Z is outside on his porch. I have no great clue as to why Digby likes some dogs right away and others not so much. He does seem to have a preference for black dogs, as well as old and infirmed ones (not a threat). Susie, of course, is fine with the whole setup, because she likes just about everybody.

Where to take the dogs today? Tourist Park? The beach? Founder's Landing? So many choices. I think the beach might be out because it's only going to be in the 50s, quite chilly after the 80-degree weather we've been having.

Where are all the brachycephalic breeds?

Lots of huskies here in the Great White North, but not too many bulldogs, pugs, etc. I must admit, though, that a sled dog team composed of bulldogs isn't going to compete in the U.P. 200, much less the Iditarod. If they did, it'd be the mini-mini-Iditarod.

Angel getting adopted

My last foster dog, Angel, is finally being adopted. Makes all those months of muddy cars, running away from me and chewing worthwhile. I miss her jumping in the Northern Tail Dog Park pond and swimming carefree.
