Happy Presidents Day!

We wrote about Lincoln and Fido (the family dog) on Lincoln’s birthday, so how about today we touch on Washington and the nation within? He was busy building this wonderful new human nation but he found time to do some dog breeding. GW bred his Virginia hounds with French hounds he got from the Marquis de Lafayette, creating the American foxhound. He led a rather full life.

    We have been to Mount Vernon with Teddy many times; including one visit with Ms. Wose and the Grizz, and another time with Amalia and Leonard.. It is an extremely pet friendly venue and Teddy just loves it.

    Mental note!…walkabouts can be used as alibis. If it’s good enough for the Wookster’s avatar, it’s good enough for us.
