WE CARE:  All of our trips are owner guided. One of us (Kevin or Polly) is on each of our trips.

You feed us when we’re hungry
You keep water in our dishes
You let us sleep on anything
Or any place we wishes.
You sometimes let us lick your hands
Or even lick your face
Despite the fact we’ve licked ourselves
In every private place
You taught us how to come when called
You taught us how to sit
You always let us go outside
So we can take a run
We’ve been with you through oh, so much
Through laughter and through tears
We hope you live to be a hundred…
That’s a lot in doggy years!
