Okay, I just love this photo of the “great white” from yesterday’s video, yes this is my special “DeeDog” girle “DeCaff.” She claims not guilty, I tend to believe her as all our dogs are just a product of what we know. To follow up on yesterday’s blog post about the impact of “corrections” on […]

An Evening With Swagger

Swagger Well judging from the name of this blog post it could either be about my puppy or about me strutting my stuff on a night on the town somewhere. The video will clarify anything the pictures don’t. This is all about my boy Swag. Mr. Swagger is growing up so nicely, I am absolutely […]
