Carson 2 months old
Thirteen years ago an adorable Labby mix puppy came into my life. I was living in the town of Carson, Washington at the time, and so he became Carson. As a traveler I’ve named other pets after places before.

Carson became a young, one year old, father with the local
hussie sweetie who was the same age. Actually Motsy was a fine beauty of collie and Australian sheepdog so he could have done worse.

We aged together. Carson would have been 13 today. Think I’ll go throw a tennis ball for him to chase. Happy Birthday Carson!
