Vulpe’s 3rd Birthday

Life tossed us hither and thither quite a bit in late 2014. But we ended up in a nice little house with a honking big garden. I knew when I saw it that Vulpe would definitely appreciate the space, particularly as she’s very ~troubled~ and doesn’t get the off-lead playtime I’d ideally like her to…

Another New Start
