Happy Howlidays



Thank you for following the adventures of my pack and the stories of friends we’ve made along the way.  I am grateful for your support.

If you’d like to see more photos in between blog posts, please follow me on Instagram! My username is @skimor or search the tag #wagmorevt to find my gallery of images.  Most photos are of my dogs, but sometimes I post nature shots. Take a look!

Fayston, Vermont. Sunlight dances through the trees, illuminating dog tails held high on a recent walk into the magic forest.

Where will you explore today?

Rainbow Sprinkles

Fayston, Vermont. My dogs begin each day with the excitement of Christmas morning: They burst from the back door and race into the yard to find the “presents” of smells left for them overnight. Sometimes Charlie Brown likes his gift so much that he rolls in it with joy. Those days do not feel like holidays. But sometimes, as I’m pouring my coffee while they are unwrapping their presents, I see a gift left for me: a rainbow, or a giant moon setting, or a hummingbird feeding, or maybe a plucky little forest critter who challenges Linus to a race. (The critter always wins.) On those days, my coffee always tastes a little richer. Like sprinkles on ice cream.

Marissa & Arctos (17 weeks)

“Arctos is Latin for ‘grizzly bear.’  My boyfriend and I tried to adopt a puppy, but after like the fifth time the adoption fell through, so we went through a breeder.

He’s learning.  He’s going to be a big dog.  He’s learning the best of ways at GMVS!”

Arctos is a silver Labrador Retriever. Marissa Marleau teaches French I and Learning Services at the Green Mountain Valley School in Waitsfield.
