Dog show Stuff

Monkey-faced Westminster winner

The Westminster Dog Show is over, and a dog I've never heard of won the event. In fact, this dog is known for having a "monkey-like face." I don't get it.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
