Somehow, Scout has a marshmellow on his ear.

The markings, the color, it should have been obvious…Scout is a Norwegian Elkhound.

The DNA results are in. Scout is MOSTLY a Norwegian Elkhound . His DNA also shows Scout is part Staffordshire Bull Terrior.

I was so sure Scout was mostly  German Shepherd. Nope. There is not a trace of German Shepherd in our boy. Despite Scout’s size and mean bark, Scout has to be the worst guard dog ever. We have to pull Scout off of guests the same way the officers on “Cops” pull their dogs off of felons. But, it is to protect people from muddy paws and kisses, not bites.

Six weeks sounds like forever. It is a long time. But, when you are on vacation, it goes fast.

Really fast.

We spent the last of our vacation in Fort Myers Beach. We did not see a single tourist attraction. Burnt out on restaurants, we only went out to eat once. But, when the beach is outside your back door and you have sunshine and flocks of friends, wellllll…life is good.
