There's been very little activity going on lately, as it's been quite warm and the dogs aren't feeling too energetic.

I had thought of strapping my rollerblades on and harnessing them up, but I've not taken them out alone like that, and I'd prefer both knee caps intact over this holiday season.
I found the first photos of Phoenix meeting his brother, Bruza again after 2 years, so enjoy.
