Woody isn't as helpful as his predecessors, Chessie and Mocha, in the garden, as he has an affinity for cat poop (unfortunately abundant in our urban neighborhood).

This is NOT a good thing, as he's prone to (expensive) digestive upsets, so he's now banished from wandering around not on a leash. (Even in our large yard in our former house in the Piedmont, he was not to be trusted...)
But, he's a wonderful fellow, and totally beautiful.
His role in life is to make people happy when they look at him, we think.
Here, he's welcoming folks to the Well-Bred Bakery, in Weaverville, NC, after a long walk with a good friend.
