Share a quick story about one of your indispensable Handlers

Impluse and Velocity are siblings that I've raised from birth. When they were puppies, they loved to come inside and cuddle on the couch with me. Now, as adults, they love it when I nap with them in the straw while resting on the trail. I'm sure they will be ready to cuddle when we get over Rosebud and Eagle Summits!
