Hello Jennifer and
all my old friends at the shelter. I am sending some pictures
that I thought you would like to see. There's some of me
at home, some of me at my cottage and a few of me out for a walk in
the woods with my new family. I went to PEI this summer and had
a blast on the beach - but my new family forgot the camera so I don't

weeknights I get to run in a nature preserve - there are miles of
trails where I can run. And I get to go to the family cottage in the
summertime. My neighbour (Sharon) has three huskies and sometimes I
get to go spend time with them. They tell me that I will be part of
a dog team this winter. Sharon thinks I will do just fine on the
Anyway, I hope you
are all fine. Take care ...
Hello to all my
friends at the shelter. Here's pictures of me running with my dog
team. I get out 3 - 4 times a week all over the Gatineau.
Check out my shoulder muscles - I'm buffed! I'm now working my way up
the team and am training to be a lead dog.
