Our New Puppy – MAPLE

Personal

Our new baby is here! We are overjoyed. It has been a long time coming to finally have a second dog. She is an Australian Shepard red tri puppy. She came from Hickory, NC (about an hour from Asheville). Cannot wait to see her grow and become a dog alongside of Trapper. So many photos to come.

It was a hike I will never forget. Montana leaves an imprint ...

The full adventure was deciding to adopt a 9 week old puppy right before leaving. Crazy times. We succeeded in viewing 25 states starting in Montana and ending in New York. Basically a big horseshoe around the U.S. I would not trade that time for anything and on the coldest of day (like today) it is refreshing to look back on the images and videos and remember my greatest advent ...
