Scully gets around
Five years ago, my son’s dog Scully was at dog camp in Pennsylvania. (Scully lives in New York.) She’s the one on the left on hind legs. You’d never know this dog had had hip surgery.

The open air design is welcoming on arrival and gives one last look at cheery blue skies and palm trees on saying goodbye. My husband and I sat outside and soaked up one last bit of sunshine before we boarded the plane that brought us back to cold temps and a dusting of snow.
