El Clan Destino

Lola has a friend Liam who has an owner Jamie who is in a hot Afro-Cuban jazz band called El Clan Destino. They really cook. Head over to their web site and click on Listen. Check out El Rukus and Ponle La Clava live (if you like hot fusion jazz). Undine is a more traditional Afro-Cuban jazz.

Today is Lola’s birthday. Our little girl puppy is now a 2 year old dog/puppy.

We are taking her out for a picnic dinner and swimming – which is her most favorite activity.

Happy Birthday Lola!

Hard to believe that you are now two.
