Everyone wants pictures of Honey on tropical beaches and stories about living the nomadic life. Heck, one of my friends even hopes we’ll meet pirates. But even if we haven’t moved aboard a sailboat yet, we’re making adventures where we can.

Purebred Dog Rejects

Sammy is a Chinese crested hairless dog.
