this girl loves her dogs. she feeds them, gives them treats, brushes them, reads books to them, and gives them hugs and kisses. she really loves throwing the ball to dunkin and he's beginning to realize that she's a pretty cool human who is actually fun to have around. if charlie and i didn't stop her she'd feed him 10 treats a day and well, dunkin's favorite thing is to play ball and lately she's been the one who plays the most with him. i'm so glad that she's been developing a relationship with him. he really is such an amazing dog and it makes me so, so sad to watch him get older each year. he'll be 10 in a few months and he's really starting to show his age a bit. i can't imagine the day that he's not a part of our lives. i love that he's around to teach avery about just how wonderful dogs are and i can't think of a better teacher and companion. we love you, dunk. thanks for being so sweet to our baby.
