Day of the Dog Virtual 5k Run

Rita participated in the “Day of the Dog” 5k race through Virtual Run Events!


Our time was 33:01 – we managed to shave off 56 seconds from our last race!


This was a great run, as the fall colors were absolutely amazing!

Play Date with Pepper (AKA Bella)

Remember “Bella,” the adorable 16 week old GSP puppy we fostered?

Well, Pepper (Bella’s new name) is doing GREAT and is as happy as can be in her new home with her 4-legged sister, Mocha, a Vizsla/Weimaraner mix, and her two human sisters who give her lots of exercise!

 We were lucky enough to get invited over for a play date, and boy, did we have a BLAST!!

We very much enjoyed seeing how happy Pepper is with her forever family!  We plan to get all the dogs together for play dates often in the future!
