I… Continue reading Eight Years

Her name is Allyson." Sigh of relief. I have major identity issues, stemming from the time I… Continue reading The Girl With The Dog

Under the Table

As you may know, I recently got a service dog named Malibu. She's incredible, and amazing at what she does. One of her favorite tasks to preform is called "under" and it literally means laying underneath a table, whether that be at a restaurant or class or meeting. She loves to lay quietly out of… Continue reading Under the Table
