      I took our dog for a walk down at VFW Park this afternoon. The water level has dropped 2 - 3’ from yesterday evening. Lots of exposed rocks.

      ok, i know this is off topic, but what kind of dog is that? we adopted a mix breed from a shelter, and while we have ideas of what make/model he is, we're not ...more sure, but he has the same light/dark brown face paint like yours does.
