Who's That Dog?

He's tall, dark and handsome and he looks great in orange. This week we get to know Jasper. He used to be a seasonal dog, but a few years ago he and his mom, Debbie Bryan, became year-round residents. I've developed a bit of a crush on this gregarious and playful canine. Jasper fits right in to the island’s dog community. Did I mention he's handsome? Paws off ladies, he's mine!
