Dog Beach

We took Maximus to the beach for the first time while we were in Naples. We have been trying to get him into the pool at home for a year so we thought going to the beach would make him more interested in the water. He loved it. He was hesitant initially and did a high paw dance that looked […]

Peace and Love kinda day

Kobe and I took Mo coffee at work and got an impromptu tour of the area he was training in. Kobe loved getting to see his dad in action. On the way back to the hotel we picked up donuts from Peace, Love and Lots of Donuts. The owner Isabelle was a delight to talk to, we spent 20 minutes […]

The Road to Milan

We finally made it to Milan following thirteen hours on planes, a train and a taxi. We initially landed in Zurich and explored for a few hours waiting on the train that would take us into Italy.  Right away we ran into our first “we’re not in Kansas anymore” moment. Mo had to go to the bathroom.  Once we found […]
