  7. Lexie has a precious face. That has to be a very gentle dog to let the owner put that on her.
    My hubby is a retired NYPD officer. He went to the parade many times to safeguard the crowds. He always brought back many stories of fun and mayhem.
    Thanks for the pingback, Frizz. It always helps to get them. I really appreciate it.
    Have a nice Sunday …
