She was a sweet little dog that we rescued from the pound three and a half years ago. When we got her they said she was older and they were happy she found a good home to spend her final years with. We were blessed to have had her as long as we did. She was always happy to see us when we came home from work. She never left our Great Danes side-she was always bathing him.

I'm so happy he's willing to start a new beginning to better his health. Sun, 14 Oct 2012 10:35:49 EST
