Atticus Gets SnawSomes! From Visiting Friends

Last night we had the pleasure of meeting up with blog readers Michael and Donna Serdehely who were up in the Whites on one of their twice yearly hiking trips. (They’ve been doing it for 16 years.) We got together at the Lincoln Common Man for dinner and were also joined by my friend Christine.

Before dinner Michael and Donna met Atticus, the star of this show, and even brought him his favorite treats, SnawSomes! Atticus returned their kindness by drawing blood from Donna’s finger when I tried to hand him off to her. (Yep, he only likes to be picked up by someone else when he’s hiking in the winter.)

I’d like to thank Michael and Donna for their support this winter and for taking the time to visit with us during their vacation. I also took the opportunity to hand off the gift basket from The Natural Dog when they won the music contest. (Photos by Michael & Donna Serdehely.)
