The autumn leaves are falling like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians and you, you are a thousand miles away, there are always two cups at my table.

T’ang Dynasty poem

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life.

A New Member

One of the things we regretted in raising our last dog Annie, was that we didn't have a companion for her. Another dog would have better socialized her and kept her occupied when either we weren't at home or wasn't paying attention to her.

Not wanting to repeat this with Bella, we decided to get another puppy. We bought her sister (same parents) from another litter.

She joined the family Saturday. She's two months old. Her name is Mabel.

Thanks. When I get a good one of the two of them together, I'll post that as well.

2 leads to 4 and 4 leads to chaos. At least that's how it went with out cats...

I think 2 will do nicely. We constitute the rest of their pack.
