My niece, Stephanie, has a puppy. Well, he’s a little big for my definition of puppy, but he’s just a year old and FULL of enthusiasm. I call him "the leaper and the licker." He excels at both, But you gotta admit he’s one good looking dog – and his owner’s one good looking girl! Spending time with Stephanie, my brother, and my other niece, Julie, was the icing on the cake last weekend.
