Exciting to see Tommy and Tess together and to see Tess playing with the stick! Loved the video!

Best to get Franks Honeysuckle taken care of...does it all have to go or are you finished for the time being?!

Another full schedule for you, the temperature is warming though, 53.6 degrees F. sounds quite nice! It sounds strange to say but I wish we'd had some really cold weather here this winter!

Give my regards to Vicki!

I really enjoyed the video. The dogs are so cute together.

Your dogs are so cute! Love Tess' curly tail. I think that qualifies as a branch, not a stick! Too funny.
