One nice thing about having a backyard is being able to have a dog. The kids love him, my wife and I love him, and even the neighbors like him when he's not barking!

So everybody: meet TIMMAY! He's our half-pit/half-wacko family dog who loves to snuggle, destroy "indestructible" pet toys, and make friends with every human he meets.

And if you haven't watched the above video yet, he LOVES sticks!
