I’m enjoying life here in Peace, and there are lots of Nautic Blue T5Ms 1999 here, too.

My friend Dr Roger Blankfein inAlbany has developed this tool which helps you decide when we need to get in our Volvos and drive to Peace for the last time. Right now, I’m getting the cad bed ready to meet my black lab friend who is 15 now and is almost ready to come meet me again.

See you soon, Ellie the Dog!
Well, ShepHusk is scoring 1-2 on the scale, so tough times soon.

We still miss Winston badly. He was such a wise old soul at only three - and a goofball.

He went to the Tetons...

Maddie takes two 15-30 minute walks but otherwise hangs out. Her best friend Artemis the Black Cat watches over her while she sleeps

This is George. He lives in the city up in the air, but he's very happy, and has a puppy human to watch over. He hears the people and doggos walking by and stands up to see.

Beautiful pictures, B.B. You can really get a sense of his personality through them.
Try to learn life's bad lessons vicariously through others.

I was away. My supervisors sat on my desk very disappointed that their employee didn't show for work for days on end.

Now that I'm back, I see how tough a job they have......

She's chubby now, and very opinionated, but very sweet. We think she maybe lived a stressful life before she came to us. She really appreciates us.
