Race, Run, Trot, Walk, Whew

Woo-hoo! Racing for the house.

Hu-Dad says he can totally relate. Things he used to do with a bounce in his step now require just a wee bit more focus and determination.

What's the hurry? A trot will do.

Made the porch! Walking time.

    Qannik, you are beautiful and sweet at any speed.

    Qannik, I too know how you feel. With the humidity being so high, you can wear the air, moving is no joke. You do whatever it takes honey. Stay beautiful and keep smiling????

    I love Qannik so much. I know he is getting up there in the senior ranks so every post is a treasure. I just want to hug him so much!
