Bling for Your Four-Legged Friend

May 12, 2012 Gifts

As I type this my awesome pup Keela is snoring next to me on the couch.  It’s raining outside. Very Excellent Husband Don just said, “the farmers are happy”  because every single time it rains he says that – and I smile and remember why I love him so much.  Doink the pig and Brandy […]
