Bamboo, the cure

Oh, Bam, the cure for any Monday feelings

He don’t care what day of the week it is or what the clock says – he just knows it’s walk time! (with a side of bear hug/growly toy time)

I felt like we should’ve had the Rocky theme playing for us today – as we wound around the neighborhood, we picked up stray dogs and children alike, cheering Bamboo’s name and jogging behind, mirroring his smile and the way he shadow kicks along the way

He mounted the porch steps, paws held over his head in triumph to cheers from the crowd, chanting his name as we retired inside for a cooldown massage and treats
