Living on the salt marsh in view of the Atlantic Ocean, we often get some stiff winds. That can feel really good and move the insects around. Or, it can be very annoying.

Lap Dog

When you are 60 lbs (27kg) of Siberian Husky, there are people who say you should no longer be a lap dog. Kodiak heartily disagrees.
