So the name had to change, but Redden and I are getting along great! We moved out by the park and now have a big yard (1/2 an acre) and lots of trails at the park. He loves to go camping with us- he even has his own doggie tent and jacket. Red is still a little unsure about the water, and tries to tip a canoe while sniffing everything. I guess swimming lessons will have to wait until spring break!
He has positively become the focus of my days, and is the best lunch date I’ve had in a while. Thanks for all you do, and Happy New Year!
