Gifts For Dogs

by Houndstooth on

Every day, our dogs give us the gift of their presence with wagging tails, walks together and quiet time together.  As the holidays approach, they don’t give two figs about presents and gift giving, but we humans like to give gifts this time of year.  Since dogs enrich our lives so much, it’s natural that […]
