What is Ralphie doing now, you ask?

He’s getting ready for a walk with his new harness.



“I really like the snuggly fit and the fact that I’ll no longer have that annoying tugging feeling on my neck when I pull too hard. This great invention makes my walks much more comfortable. Thanks guys!!”

Cheers to a great week, readers!

What to do today?

Ralphie wonders…

What should I do today?




Go for a swim?


Go for a walk and look for Petoskey stones?


Make a sand castle?


Go wine tasting?


Go to the grocery store?


Put my shirt back on?


Watch the sunset?


Go back up the the house?


How about I take a cue from this sign?


Yes. That is what I will do!
