Thanksgiving Day brought a mostly clear, cold morning to Benton County, Oregon. So for the first time in years, Joan and I decided to take all five dogs for a walk at the same time. The old boys, Rogue and Rocky, mostly just followed the the interesting scents around the field. Knife wanted Joan to keep throwing his frisbee while Sharpy just wanted to chase Knife. Heart tugged with Joan, hunted for voles, and enjoyed a rare break from her puppies.
Thank you Laura Hilton, Peggy Richter, Connie Batsford, Gunnel Johanssen, Terry Hendricks, and all the breeders who have been caring for the generations of Groenendael ancestors that made our dogs the wonderful companions that they are.
