Abbey always waited for the kids to get home from the bus and she would "walk" them up to the house. Here she is right as the bus was coming up. This is her last time "walking" the kids home.
This pic brought back memories and made me sad but knowing Abbey was truly loved and devoted to her family is a blessing. She is at the bridge now with our other dogs who have passed and although Ranger cannot replace Abbey he will bring you much happiness and joy.
I realized 6 dogs! The doodle would make 7. So yeah. There are a lot of dogs in this building.
He really does have a good boss and it is a very good company. I hope it stays that way, right now it's owned by a venture capital company or something and eventually they'll sell it. But the culture is similar to when it was still a co-op.
Another nice walk this morning, if you don't call Xerxes baying three times as we walk along and also picking up a flattened squirrel (thank goodness for 'drop it' command, am I right?). One skunk forced us to change our route. We went by the same homeless man (pretty sure) sleeping in a bus shelter which they popped into again (I didn't see him until we were there) but he didn't wake up so that was good.
Not much to say here but I deal with the same issue with Abbey scraping her nose a lot from play. These days her nose does not heal well if she scrapes it. The scabs/callouses are not noticeable unless you take a nosy dog picture.
