Us critters here at the Bad Dog Ranch live in Oakland County, Michigan. So we'd thought we'd pass along information about some fun stuff going on in our area.

  3. So you've got the Eastern Massasauga on your side of Lake Huron too? They're mostly found on the Bruce Peninsula here in Ontario. Makes sense to have a session for dog walkers... one doesn't want to have an unpleasant day running too close to one of them with the hound, either.

    I love the pictures!
