Today was a very sad day as Judy and I made the heart-breaking decision to put Latte to sleep. As many of you may know, Latte’s health has been steadily declining for the last year or two. She was originally diagnosed with some kind of disc compression/degeneration issue which affected the nerves running to the [...]
Lindsey’s surprise birthday gift to Judy was for Judy to meet Misty May who, with Keri Walsh, won Olympic gold medals in 2004 and 2008 in women’s beach volleyball. Misty was at a book signing for her new book Misty May, Digging Deep in Volleyball and in Life where Judy and Lindsey took the opportunity [...]
I spotted Latte romping around outside with a big leaf stuck to her head. It was quite comical so I decided to snap some photos. In addition to the leaf, I found that she had stuff hanging from her lip as well as a bug crawling on her forehead. Latte is truly a dirty rotten [...]

Latte received a new toy today. It’s a rubber cube that has some slots in which you can smear peanut butter (or some other food that will stir the olfactory senses). The dog can sniff the food, but has a hard time getting to it. So the idea is that the dog’s owner gets some [...]
On August 5, 2001, Judy and I decided to take Latte Dog on a run around Miramar Lake (5 miles one loop). I was curious to see whether see could do it. On the one hand, she’s not in the best shape. On the other hand, she’s a dog, and dogs love to run, right? [...]
