Scruffy went out on trial this month and he is doing famously. He has a new hair cut for the warmer weather. and is loving it!

Four years ago today, May 5th,  the bundle of joy known as Bowie came home with us. He is the cutest, most precious dog I have ever had.  He is a great joy in our lives. 

I am so happy to share stories like this. Thank you so much for sharing William, and I look forward
