This is on one side of me:
And this is on the other:
I want to be a dog in my house!
"Dogs are simple. We don't overthink things, we just want results. If someone gives me a treat I don't spit it out because I'm not sure what their reason was, or I'd be missing out on treats! So when people — whether it's these guys or Michael Vick himself — are doing things that'll produce results for dogs like me, I don't waste time questioning their motives; I just find more opportunities to put them to work!"

"his mind" about dog fighting and redemption.

|She has the best seat in the house, and she holds on to all of the remotes.|
|If she doesn't like what we're watching, she'll change|
the channel without even asking if we mind.
|She's got tons of toys, and tends to hoard them.|
|Here she is, again on the ottoman, and someone had the nerve to put their feet up next to her!|
|They must have been stinky feet...|
|But she is the Queen! (And she knows it!)|
|Off we go! We don't have "real" sidewalks, just these weird |
asphalt ones which aren't well-maintained. I guess they consider this "The Country"?!
|The regular route is closed because they're re-doing a bridge on our street. Very annoying! |
So we had to go down the hill...
|The first time I walked Charlie, fire hydrants terrified her. |
Now... "Piece of cake, mom!"
|One problem we have around here is poison ivy, lots of it. It makes a walk difficult |
because the vines hang from the trees and the leaves dangle over the sidewalks.
I'm extremely allergic, so I keep my distance!
|We took a rest when we got to the pond, but Charlie had too much |
to sniff and check out! No resting for this girl!
|On the way back, it's ALL uphill. This photo doesn't give justice to |
the "gentle" incline we faced.
|But wait! Is that Brad?! Maybe he'll give us a ride!|
|Home, sweet (air conditioned) home!|
I took a cold shower and Charlie - well, she took a nap!
