We took a dog break for a couple of years. But with my traveling a lot, Beth and the girls really wanted to get another dog for protection and so we rescued Raider, a boxer (?)/lab (?) mutt who is one of the sweetest dogs we've ever met. She's a puppy but her large paws indicate that she won't stay small.
We lost our last dog because we had to have her put down as she was so vicious. So this time we wanted to be more intentional about raising up our dog and so we hired Tecla Walton with Angel K-9 who has been super helpful. We have learned a lot.
I've posted more pictures of Raider here. We are very much enjoying this magnificent beast!
