Parker was... uh... a bit thinner last year. I'm not sure if he was just having an adorable day, but look at that face!
Behavior-wise, Parker was much more of a wild man. He loved to play with new dogs, but was a little slower to listen when I needed him to. Now Parker is a total suck up when it comes to obedience, but he isn't as quick to warm up to new dogs. He tends to prefer hanging with his pals rather than meeting new friends.

Then there is Skye. If you've been following this blog for more than a week, you'll know that Skye has had her fair share of health problems. So far only one set of problems has a name: vasculopathy. She's halfway through her first treatment for this, but so far there has been no improvement. In fact, her skin issues seem to be getting worse. It's one of those things that doesn't seem all that bad, since I see it every day. But this was Skye last year:
|Look at all that fur on her head! You can see the scabs on her ear tips, but they're tiny!|
Sadly, this is Skye now.
|Bald, bumpy, and scabbed.|
|Skye's "bad ear" keeps getting worse.|
One thing that hasn't changed? Skye still rocks that killer pit bull bod- talk about athletic!
|Last year's thunder thighs.|
|This year's even more thundrous thunder thighs.|
It should be interesting to see what the next year brings. Will Parker turn a darker shade of white? Will Skye be a perfect angel, but be bald? Will Sinatra still be kicking around? It's times like these that I'm glad I can't see into the future.
