    I can hear the Husky noises just by viewing the photos! Looks like you might need to hire a referee! Those are some major “jukes” the boys are doing! NFL worthy!

    Nice try Boom!!! One day you’ll figure out his signature move. Just don’t bowl him back down the stairs!! ????

    Just read your short story. I really enjoyed it.. I also ordered The Lottery from amazon yesterday. Keep up these enjoyable reads. And as always I enjoy the daily antics of your pack.. You might need to acquire another red girl like ours.
