Joey Collins and Stephanie Gaibler of Great Falls with their dog Cali.
Chad and I are Great Falls residents of over a decade. We got our beagle-mix, Gypsy, from the Fairfax County shelter when we first moved here in 2004. Here is Gypsy, a somewhat senior doggie, with our 2-year-old son, Ty Smolinski. — Ipsita G. Smolinski, Great Falls
Alicia Wolman, Great Falls: A happy family.
A picture’s worth a thousand words, and some other words help paint the background. I love my mutts, and even thought this was taken back a bit — it epitomizes the rebel spirit of the dog-walker (my mom), and my little Callie girl. Callie is no longer with us — but, Bernie is sitting at my feet, under my desk, as I write. — Phil DiFalco, Great Falls
