A Dadlete Under Where?

A Dadlete Under Where? I used to be an athlete. In my head I was an elite athlete. In reality, I was simply average. But I did all the things – I lifeted, I ran (when I had to), I did plyometrics, I lifted, I threw heavy things. I practiced, practiced, and practiced. I remember […]

Racing in the Rain

Sydney hated the rain. She loved the puddles and the mud, but she hated the rain. She was a funny, energetic dog. Those who met her knew she was a boxer through and through.
