Smiling Dog

I am so excited, the March/ April issue of Bark ( came out today and Suka is on pg 24! I had sent in her picture this summer and had totally forgotten about it. I received an email last month to let me know she was selected! I didn't remember what picture I sent but here it is!!! We had taken Suka to Medora for her first camping trip. On the way home we made a pit stop and Suka had just woken up.
I can't wait until spring... more trips to Medora and summer fun...I am so ready for spring. Reality is... we have almost 6 inches of fresh snow on the ground with a temp. of 2 and a stiff wind...Hopefully all the snow will be gone within the next 2 months.

Happy Dog

She must be dreaming of the snow or happy that I washed her blanket! We have been able to walk the last few days and it has given us both a much needed attitude adjustment.

Silly Whiner

Suka was being so dramatic last night whining for her dinner. She is so funny and talkative. I need to learn how to use the video function on my phone... It must be the shredded carrots and bit of cheddar she likes so much. It has helped slow down her eating. She used to finish a cup of food in less then 30 seconds, now it’s a few minutes.
