Munky, that is one awesome dog you have there!
Our Monkey is living up to her name. We started letting her roam outside the fence during the day as she now has a bell collar and all her shots. She also come (most of the time) when she is called, which I find amusing since she is fiercely independent. She doesn't go far, resting on top of the fence, surveying her neighbourhood or going into the tiny greenbelt beside us trying to chase whatever she can!
Violet is getting old, more crippled and dare I say, a little senile. She hates that Monkey can leave the yard and she can't and she starts begging for her 8 pm treat the minute she finishes gobbling down her dinner. She can't jump up on the bed much anymore and she will not leave my side for even a second!
But they are our fur-babies and we love them!
