Yes, I realize I've gone off the deep end. But I love these dogs. (And people are a bit silly about their pets, aren't they?) Maggie is 6 1/2, and Kate is nearly eleven, so they're both laid back and groovy to hang out with.
....Until it's time to go for a walk. Man, there is NOTHING like being dragged through the neighborhood by a hundred and forty pounds of labrador retriever.
Here are the girls recovering from their morning exertions. Maggie appropriated her mother's dog bed, and Katie curled up on Maggie's less plush one. Is that maternal instinct, you think? Giving the kids the best and you take what's left over?
