Simple Saturday Night

Isn’t it funny how our definition of a good Saturday night changes as we get older?  To convert for our dog readers, this conversion chart says I am between 6 and 7 and this conversion chart says I am 8.  Either way, my idea of a perfect Saturday night is an idyllic camping spot watching the sun set over the lake.  I was taking pictures of the sunset when I turned and saw the dogs on the drop line after a good hike and a dinner and realized – this is the perfect Saturday night!

    I agree! That looks like a fun night to me. And I’m only 2 in dog years!
