Pippin & Bosco at the duck pond

Here's Pippin out at the duck pond. 
He enjoys walking there because he love to see the ducks and geese that live there.  I told him I was going to take some pictures and he of course struck a pose.  He also enjoys the treats Bosco carries in his backpack.  Want to know what the poodles love to snack on? Click on Pippin out at the duck pond to find out.
