Lucy and Catherine could be twins! She has YET to meet a dog she doesn’t want to hug, play with, or adopt. Great review all ’round. I especially loved Lucy’s part. Four paws.

So now for the ten-million-dollar question, Terry. Do you folks have a dog?

Thanks for taking time to leave us such great feedback!

Enough for two kennels if you count all of the species of the ubiquitous faux canis. Thankfully, those breeds don’t eat much or require walking. Casey is our nearly two-year-old (living) Cairn terrier. We’ve had her just over a year. Catherine tells the world Casey is her sister!
