Do you have any pets?

While I don’t have any pets of my own, I do love to spoil other people’s fur babies. Two in particular:

- Baxter was determined that I would love him. He is mostly German shepherd and was a rescue pup. He likes to play and if he returns and gives up the ball, it is usually only to me, much to the chagrin of his dad.

- Bella is a German shepherd and was adopted after a family member died. She loves squeaky balls and running. She will chase the ball thrown for Baxter and occasionally drop her ball for you to throw if Baxter isn’t around.
