    Not necessarily. A rescue in NoVa (PetConnect) that we tried to adopt from refused to consider us for an adult dog because we both worked outside the house, even though we are longtime dog owners,...

    I've found in that ring that at training sometimes horses seem to misread the top rail or top edge of a panel - not sure why, but some of them seem to confuse it with the ring fence if you're not...

    This. We tried to adopt an adult dog from a rescue in Virginia earlier this year. They told us that because we both work, they had "no dogs" that would be suitable for us, even though we have a...

    I used the term "yummy" to mean something sweet-smelling or special - we had a friend give us some lovely organic frou frou citrusey baby lotions/powders that are the kind of thing we might not have...

    I'd treat it like a laidback shower. You'll never go wrong by bringing a cute onesie or baby swaddle (they make lots of adorable ones in gender-neutral colors with animals on them). You could also...

    Not too sparkly knee length cocktail dress in a dark color like navy will cover most situations. If the wedding starts at 5 or after, you can go a little longer if you would like; if it's middday,...

    I recently made the decision to kick one of mine out in a field for six months when we just couldn't otherwise get him right. He's a total hot-house flower (also an OTTB), but we yanked his shoes...

    Such big, big hugs to you and DH and your crew out there. We miss you out east, particularly at times like these when we'd all want to descend on y'all with hugs and bottles of wine.
