“We can evolve while still staying true to who we are. We can honor who we've been and choose who we want to be next."
~ Dr. Who. (Jodie Whittaker)

The greatest adventure is what lies ahead.
Today and tomorrow are yet to be said.
The chances, the changes are all yours to make.
The mold of your life is in your hands to break.

    Awwww Julie, I'll MISS YOU!!! I HOPE MaryAnn hasn't chewed your favorite rope toy to death!! If she has,, ,if Moni is an EL, well, hey remember how Moni LOVES TO $$$PEND??? CREDIT CARD TIME!!

    I've been the CL of the Awesome A team almost a year. It was a shock to the team, and I was surprised that I stepped up to it, in that though I knew someday I'd like to be a CL again, I didn't realize I'd switch teams so fast!! I think I was as shocked as everyone else was!! But, I'm very much so enjoying it. Of course I still love towards the Dawggies, and always will. Kinda like how our first love, is always special though we've moved on.

    Awww Julie, the Dawgs will LOVE having you back gf!!

    Likely you know I am no longer a Dawg, but the CL of the AWESOME A team.

    It's GREAT though that you are BACK in the kennel!! NO doubt they kept your Dawggie bed and a few of your toys, though Moni may of been playing with them.
