The path will get beaten

So this is what a cold January morning can look like in the Liverpool neighborhood of Galeville. Note how our cherished rescue mutt Ellie B aka Dogamous Pyle carefully picks her way around the pool – yes, that is our covered in-ground smack dab in the middle – and the rest of the backyard, too.
