Van, that incredible news. She is a heart breaker. Adopted our son from Korea when he was 6 months old. Lot's of paperwork and hassle but it all worked out.

You sir have an impressive amount of talent and energy, I think this special little girl just hit the lottery. Best of wishes to you and your family.

Yeah, 'Karen' would have a freakin' litter of kittens over this.

Personally ... dog-carts are the bomb. My two nephews grew up with Newfoundlands, four of them; they all pulled carts. They ran a lead to either side of the harness for control.

Love it.

I have had big dogs for 20 years (Newfoundlands and Berneses) and they all enjoyed pulling, and had their share of little kids riding!
Enjoying Colorado...
