More Working Breed Demonstration

Yesterday, I showed you how, as a working breed, we are asked to work even on a casual walk.

Do you think looking this regal doesn't take a lot of work, too?

This working breed stuff is exhausting. I think I need a nap.

    Dear Rusty

    Those crossed paws are the height of regalness! Or is it regality?
