Friday Favs: Dog in a Dress

  Confession: I don’t really like these friday favs posts. They take a lot of work and there’s not much payoff.. and I don’t just mean for me – according to analytics these links only get clicked by <10% of people who view the posts (which means that less than ten percent of you are…

Mia’s Skills 

Mia learned several new skills with her trainer last week, and this week we’ve been reinforcing those skills in our home.
