Friends for the holidays!

We all have a BFF.  Someone that just gets us, who has seen us at our worst and at our best. Yoshi-Bella has a BFF, and great news!  Sleepovers every day for the next 10 days!! Yoshi-Bella (my dog) and her BFF Harlee (a Basset Hound) hang out with each other when the rest of the family goes on vacation. In this case Harlee's family is going to Mexico, sadly she is not allowed to come.  Great news for Yoshi!  When Harlee walks near our house, she pulls and whines to come and visit Yoshi. When I walk near Harlee's house, even if we aren't going there, Yoshi tries to take a dash across the road to get to Harlee's house. I...

3....2.....1... go!

Yoshi-Bella is unimpressed with the ice, and we have lots these days. She still runs full tilt to run out her jiggles at the dog park.  I hope she has sturdy cruciate ligaments!  Today is January 26, I am excitedly waiting for my prototype hemp leash and collar, so that I can finally crack this store!  I am contacting non-profits whose mandate lies close to Yoshi-Bella's core, animal charities.  I am hoping that our model of profit sharing for non-profits, with no upfront costs for them, works for everyone.
