Steve is now bedridden in his Texas home due to ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease, and their positive outlook is […]

Posted by Kate Penn Animals across the board seem to love the taste of my lens. I do my best to keep their noses and tongues off my glass but sometimes they are just too sneaky for me. To be fair, I had just fed this horse an apple slice so I was kind of […]
