Feliz Naughty Dog

These are two true stories. I’ve had a few incidents as Coconut’s mom but nothing as bad as these.   The first one happened this week and the second many years ago. We have some adorable puppies ready to be adopted and we hope they will be home before the Packers’ game on Sunday. We [...]

Hi is a Simple Way to Change Lives

I used to be that person who saw a dog and walked across the street to avoid him. If I went to a gathering and there was a dog I'd move to a different room even if it meant not being with the people I had come to see.   I did not hate dogs. [...]
