What’s the neatest thing about being a dog owner, and what’s the worst?The issue i like least it the accountability. You’ve bought to do loads of exercise and training but the smartest thing is that you just get it all back. They teach you to admire the simple things in life.
How did you get a hold of the names?As long as the primary letter suits the breed, I’m satisfied. I love human names on canines.

where do Stella and Wendy sleep?In the bed with me. You know how they say ‘in case you lie down with canine, you rise up with fleas’ but I believe it’s definitely ‘if you lie down with canine, you arise without problems’.

I desire them to reside like rockstars.
in the event that they may change one aspect about you, what do feel it could be?Although I walk them for hours, I’m certain they want me to stroll them greater.
What obtained you and your dogs through lockdown?We were very fortunate that we were inside 5K of two parks and a beach.
