We were sprawled under the shade of one of the trees in the backyard enjoying the marsh breezes. Frankie was lightly snoring, enjoying a quiet nap. Unfortunately, Landon couldn’t tolerate his big brother looking so comfortable, so was thinking about disturbing his peace.

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.
