It’s just as important to consider her special needs in advance as it is those of the rest of your family.

It’s easy to take this personally and think that the dog doesn’t like us, but that’s because we’re looking at it from a human perspective.

It can make it very difficult to prepare for the day, especially when you head out in the morning dressed for hot and sunny and come
