Ode To My Dear 'Sons'

Every day when I return home from work, Caesar and Vasco are always there to greet me. Caesar will be running up and down the drive way with a soft toy in his mouth and Vasco will be whining in anticipation so that I will just pat him and give him a regular belly rub. It is amazing that the both of them are there to greet both Tasha and me every day without fail. There hasn't been a day go by, with them not greeting us the way they do. Cute fellers - I always look forward to going back home just to see them greet and welcome the both of us - very enthusiastically.



Love you both Caesar and Vasco

This posting is specially dedicated to the both of you - woof woof!
