I see lots of signs while we’re out walking. Rumpy could care less, of course, because he can’t read them. But I find them interesting. Here are a few of the signs we see while on our walks.
Walks with Rumpy are wondrous things. Walking out the front door leads to canine greetings from our neighbor dogs. Sometimes Rumpy sniffs the yard before heading toward the gate.
