Spent the night last night in North Carolina at my cousin’s home. He and his wife have a son and two dogs. The dogs, Blue and Alvar, are quite something.

A mix of Mastiff/German Shepherd/some other stuff.

They did settle down into the sun in the kitchen after a while. My cousin isan architect and redesigned their kitchen (mostly Ikea). It was nice to see his work finished..it was beautiful as I would expect.
