With Age Comes…

by Houndstooth on

Our recent visit to the University of Illinois with Bunny and Küster made me think of a few things.  Generally, we don’t like to think about our dogs or ourselves getting older, but there are a few benefits.  Traveling with the oldest and youngest members of our pack reminded me of just that. After we […]
