Mack loves going off the grid and taking rides in the side by side. I always wondered what it would take for him to not want to go for a ride. I'm still wondering. He pulled a muscle in his shoulder over the weekend and would whine & cry if he moved just wrong. And … Continue reading Ready To Ride
Ah, my sweet little Mack-a-doodle! I worried that he would never really be a normal dog. Or at least not a normal Berner. His social skills were so opposite what they should be for a Bernese Mountain Dog. He was afraid of people. He was afraid of other dogs. He was afraid of his leash. … Continue reading Three Dog Night

That being said, Oh. Mah. Gawd! The leash! He is a stubborn little shit when it comes to the leash. I … Continue reading Tangled Up In You
