His hobbies include going for investigative strolls in the neighborhood, playing long games of low-intensity chase with members of his toy collection and convincing us (his two dads) that he has not had enough bacon treats and that we should really do something to remedy the situation.  During the first few years of his life, we noticed …read the full article.
