    I’m dogsitting my friends’ long-haired Chihuahua today. She runs around the yard like she’s got rockets strapped to her back. 🙂

  2. I want to hose all of those dogs off. Too hot to be running around outdoors for man or beast!

  3. Chandler also does an ostrich festival every year. Cuz why the heck not.
