  • Learning from dogs

    My wife and I have two dogs, one is named Charley, and the other is Bella. Charley is a mixture of Lhasa lapso and something else, and Bella is a full-fledged Pomeranian that we rescued from a bad situation. We were not quite sure what would take place when we got Bella, she was so scared and stayed to herself the first day or two here. But it wasn’t long (maybe the third day) that Bella opened up and let us see how much fun she was going to be. They have both been a joy to have and make up a very important part of our home life.
