Greyhound Adoption Month

“If we get a dog, what kind do you think we should get?” It seemed like a simple enough question twelve years ago when my husband asked it. But of course, it wasn’t.

Full “Animal” House

We hear it often when we see a posting for a pet that is looking for it’s forever home “oh I wish I could take that pet home”, “if I only lived closer”.
