call off your puppy, said the boxer

Oliver finally (Vet’s office forgot to give me his rabies tag) visited his first dog park. He was annoying as usual, no…more so. He attacked & bit all of the big dogs. The dogs let him! And i kept thinking i wish some dog would bit him back, as his own mother would have. Didn’t…

bored panda has huskies today…

these are the three that i would have uploaded, had they allowed me to do so. The white husky was Blue & the modeling one was named Nala. Both have passed away. I was jealous of all those images today.
