I didn't mention at all, in the midst of all our summer comings and goings, that our pups celebrated their second birthday last Saturday. But they did. Franklin and Mavis are officially two years old. They have mellowed much, do all their bathroom business outside (like good dogs), LOVE to run, hate to get baths, enjoy licking faces, chasing animals smaller than them and knocking down unsuspecting children. In order to the keep the peace with the neighbors, however, Mavis is unfortunately learning she can not bark all the live long day. Hence, the red bark collar. They've spent their week being two at the dog park and the farm getting dirty, wet and meeting lots of new friends of the four and two leg variety.
Happy Birthday Mavis and Franklin!
Love your people.
