A Tale of Three Dogs, Part Three Conclusion

Meshach A week after Shadrach’s passing, my friend Kim asked me if she could gift me with one of her upcoming litter’s puppies.

A Tale of Three Dogs, Part Two

Shadrach Fridge entered my life gently and sweetly, but Shadrach came slamming into my life with his damaged, abused, neglected young self.

Oscar, the Wheaten Terrier, Survives and Thrives

About a year and half ago I consulted with a woman in Beijing, China for her then ailing Wheaten Terrier, named Oscar. She had come as a referral to me by Jesse at Pet-Grub.com.
