Our Newfoundland Hikari turned 12 years old this year. That is a very good age for this breed that has an average life expectancy of 10. We often take her to a local park where she can watch the activities, including the other dogs out for a walk. Click on the image for a larger view.
The snow stopped in the afternoon of March 12. The temperature would drop below zero that night, turning the magnolia blossoms brown the next day. Last year, we saw a spectacular display. Click on the image for a larger view.
