Hanna and Derrick earned Gold medals in the Madison County Special Olympics Bowling Tournament!
Akyra was suffering from seperation anxiety when Brittani would leave for work, so she wondered about getting a mature, calming playmate for her. We went to the Humane Society and walked through the barking, jumping, cowering and nervous dogs confined to their cages. As we walked past this one Pit Bull in his cage, we noticed he just set there, leaning against his door, wagging his tail each time we walked past. Brittani arranged for a meet and great for us and him. What an adorable snuggle bear. Max was Akyra`s new playmate.
Jordan rescued a Shepard mix puppy with some wolf ancestry. He named him Genji and as he began to grow it was obvious he needed more area to exercise and play. Brit offered to try Genji with the pack and see how it may work out. Now the Three Amigos are best buds and of course what one doesn’t get into the others will!
