Here's yet another one of Stella's friends. His name is Blitz and although I'd heard about him for years, we've only recently met. It was obvious from the start that he is definitely a lover of dogs. I'm not sure if he was ever a carny but I suspect he would've fit right in.
I forgot to include a link to walkscore.com in yesterday's post. I saw it on the local news yesterday morning and thought it might be useful to those (in the U.S.) who walk your dogs (or yourselves) regularly. It measures walking distance from your very own address to different places of interest around your neighborhood. This way you can not only get lots of great exercise for you and your dog but also challenge yourself occasionally to go further. It also lists the most walkable cities if you happen to be traveling or thinking of moving to more sustainable digs.
