Honoring Sarge

Sarge has become an angel. Officially, at least. He was an angel on earth until yesterday, when he passed away at the age of 16. He has now officially begun his work as Doggie Angel, Elderbull Extrordinaire. In honor of Sarge, we are sharing this delightful video today. Sarge's family would be grateful if each person who watches it would share it with just one other person.

To the BatWagon!

 Some dogs are just born to be superheros... Denver Botanic Gardens hosted a fun event for dogs and their adoring people today. We went to join in the festivities, meet new friends, and to help cheer on our favorite participants in the Bow Wow of the Year contest. We met great new friends, and we fell absolutely head over heels in love with Bat. Bat is a 14 year-old corgi. Without the use of his back legs, bat travels in style in his red wagon. Alert and happy, Bat is a shining example of how happy our senior dog friends can be, with or without 100% of their faculties intact. You will see in these photos that Bat has a...
