We’ve finally had some lovely spring days, and today Marley and I decided to go take a look at the Hershey Gardens, just to be outside for awhile. There weren’t too many flowers yet, but there were some early spring flowers and buds. Mostly I found myself photographing the “critters” that live…Read more »
I’ve been quiet here lately, in part because business was very brisk last week. Looonnng days. But also because I have been feeling rather heartbroken for the last week or so. One of the most difficult parts of my job (and the job of anyone who works with animals and loves them) is dealing with…Read more »
