August Feel Bad For You Comp

The mother of all comps. From our friends at Enjoy!

The photo is from a family vacation near LaFollette, Tennessee. Kona the Chocolate Lab leads the chase, but Mikey the Boston Terrier in his personal flotation device will eventually get the tennis ball. I hope I am reincarnated as a dog and I get to spend my next life chasing tennis balls all day.

Now THAT's a way to start a Friday. Good tunes. Picture from my home state. And the visual of a big dog having the time of his life. Who knew floppy ears could serve as aeronautical devices!
