I was changing the bedsheets, and he wouldn’t move from the mattress topper.

This guy lights up my life.

The now-regular (six months in) Dinner with Friends group gathered at my home on Saturday. Physical distance. Patio time in the garden.

HAPPY WORLD DOG DAY!!
Pics of my three companions from my time in Saint Louis:
And my other years I remember Goldie, and Sam, and Elmo, and Delilah, and Snowball, and Phantom, and that first dog from years ago, Oliver.
