This is a darling image sent to me by my daughter, Catherine. Catherine takes Erik and Penny to the dog park at least twice a week in addition to taking them to dog school classes and agility trials at other times.
Both Erik and Penny just love having this "play" and "work" time. And, we just love having them as our special family members.
I don't remember who it was who said, "if you want a truly loyal friend, get a dog." Our family is fortunate to have two such truly loyal friends.
