  1. Dogs are my fave!

  2. I have three dogs(girls)that are part of my family, last year I went to the Pet Expo and almost brought home a Coon hound dog, but three dogs are more than enough, to spread my attention to, I did come home with a bag of samples which my girls really enjoyed. I also gained knowledge on higher end dog food. thanks So Cal City Kids
