One of Simba’s favorite activity is riding in the car. When she sees that I take my keys along she gets all excited. She runs to the car, whimpering and jumping up and down. Sometimes I just let her in and drive her around the block. She’s always happy with that. She’s a great passenger. […]
I own a German Shorthaired Pointer. Her name is Simba. Everyday is an experience living with her. Here I share some of those experiences and joys.

She had an extremely difficult time getting over the separation anxiety when he moved away and Zoe started college. As he walked […]
