I’m a terrible pet person, I don’t remember birthdays or adoption days. But this year, of course, different with Bixby. We didn’t think he’d have a fifth birthday. So grateful for this day.

Our walks are often interrupted by a random pile … Continue reading Bixby Diaries: Fall Leaves and First Snow
