My newest granddog, Buff, being shy.

                                                                                                                                                                                                               Edited to add -- Blogger is being difficult today and won't give me my reading list.  While i am going to try to go to every blog i follow and check each one individually to see if you published today, i may take a while to get around to everyone as i also have work.  My hope is Blogger will get over this "hiccup" soon.
