Another year comes to a close. And what a year it has been.
Where should I start…
On the Doggy front, I had 21 over night guests and 40 day visits…mostly due to 1 dog, I watch 1 day a week. I have been watching him for 3 and a 1/2 years now. I cant believe that its been that long.
As I mentioned before, I am taking a step back from boarding. Lynne’s Doggy BnB has been hosting doggy guests for 4 and 1/2 years and I need to take a break. I will still continue to do day care but no more overnights.
This will give me more time to explore more walking trails.
Speaking of walking trails, Dave and I have covered a lot of territory this year but have so much more to see. Here is a list of all the trails we have walked so far, including the link for more information;
