I have two dogs. A mutt that I found in the park 9 years ago and a 4 year old golden retriever who is loving but extremely goofy. They are both loving and well behaved but, well, fall far short of the dog I used to have who would carry groceries home from the store in her mouth. If you have any clue how to teach the golden to fetch, you will gain extra points.

It was a fun hobby, but …well I got caught up in planting and landscaping and it became a sort of addiction. Still, it was worth it. At the height of activities, we put on 3 to 4 free movies in the park a summer. https://www.richmondmagazine.com/arts/blogs_thehat.php is a recent blog post written about my movie nights, but they got my last name wrong. It isnt CHapman and thats all Im gonna say about that.
In December, I relocated to the fan, and even though I was hesitant to move, it made sense financially and recreationally. My dogs love walking to the grocery store with me several times a week. And I can now bike commute to work. So, it wound up being a blessing.
Now I just need someone to share dog walks and grill outs with
