Lying around on the couch, wishing I had my Maui and Ashbury dogs to love on.  Oh how I miss those soft, velvety puppy ears.

This breed of dog is called a Maui dog. They're documented to be the sweetest dogs on the planet. Just so you know.

This little pupper is Ashbury a.k.a. “Bear,” “Bear Bear,” or “THE Bear.” She enjoys long runs up and down the bluffs, finding ways to upstage her sister and stealing dirty underwear from the laundry basket.

They live down in Florida with my parents now where there’s enough water on all sides to make them some very happy dogs.
