Meg cracks me up.  I swear she's a step above a dog.  Like half dog half human.  Can see the thoughts swirling in that pretty redhead!

From our perspective in the US of A, it looks like she is the driver!


Nitro 11 1/2  yr old Doberman; right front amp June 2014. Had 6 doses carboplatin, followed by metronomic therapy. Rocked it on 3 legs for over 3 years! My Warrior beat cancer, but couldn't beat old age. He crossed the Bridge peacefully on July 25, 2017, with dignity and on his terms.  Follow his blog entitled "Doberman's journey"
