Oberon, an Alaskan Klee Kai pup

The samoyeds have their spitzes, the akitas have their shiba inus, the collies have their shelties, and now huskies have their Alaskan klee kais.

Happy 10th Birthday, Fluffy Puppies!

Bianca & Sorcha turned 10! I can’t believe it was 10 years ago that we brought them home, two cottonballs that looked like polar bears and grew into enormous, well, polar bears. They spent their 10th birthday at our new home, and Teresa & Doug came up from Los Angeles to celebrate and keep them …

Flower Study: Orchids at The Conservatory of Flowers
