The first day of fall is just days away, which means sweater weather is right around the corner. That means Chick needs a new coat and I’m torn. So I’m asking you all: which jacket do you like best?

When standing on his hind legs, he measures over seven feet tall. Kind of ridiculous, no?

An old pup

Most people always go for the puppies, but I must say that I have a soft spot for older dogs. They are filled with love and wisdom, and are so sweet they make your heart melt each time they look at you with their tired eyes. Read more
