Barking in the car. The lady wears earplugs.

At six months old, Daisy came over from Eastern Europe. She lived with a someone nearby before the lady took her in three months ago.

Daisy is now one year of age – a beautiful mix of many breeds.

Monty and his shadow

Monty is an absolutely delightful, much-loved Cockerpoo pup, six months old. His coat is unusually soft.

Buddy goes deaf when they call him.
