A Canine Crime Caper

A crime of passion occurred in our house last Sunday. The result of a love so strong she would risk everything including her health and her place in society.

A Butt-Kicking Adventure

After five months of ski dreams, Jonesing over videos, and reading about new mountain developments, it's ski season. I wondered if I'd get my butt kicked by the mountain.

Gathering clouds threatened rain, but that didn't stop our merry crew. After... Continue Reading →

Taking It to New Heights
