Typhoon and Cheoah are the best of buddies, though sometimes the redhead likes to claim her quiet napping time in her crate. After all, the crate is a sacred space that all of us respect. If a dog is inside his or her crate, no one would dare enter their crate.

Mud Freckles

January 10, 2009 |

Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window.  This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
