When Jean-Luc gets into a field of grass, he prances around in full puppy mode. It is, as a recent stranger described it, "pure joy." Lucky for me I get to witness that joy on a regular basis. In fact, I go out of my way to take Jean-Luc through the grass for that very reason. The pup had his annual check-up and shots today. He got a clean bill of health, save for needing his teeth cleaned. Way to go bud!
