For our Beagles, Maddox and Buddy, when running shoes are in hand they begin singing like contestants trying out for American Idol, dancing included.
Walks USED to be slap-happy Iditarod’s with frenzies of purposeless pulling and choking only to cast off madly in all directions, fighting for command. Then this would happen a few blocks out…
