They Make Them Miniature?!

That's what I said to my friend's boyfriend, whom I was having lunch with at Japhy's in Arcata as we spied these greyhound pups out the window. In case you thought I was just being super on top of things the last few weeks [...]

Say Cheese! Or… Woof!

Dogs don't really get a lot of playtime around here but I couldn't resist these two during a trip to the library back in October. They were total sweethearts, posing for me and everything. I made sure to give them a good pa [...]
