Keeping Our Doors Open

FIDO was open for biz today, as we are every Sunday afternoon, to help folks with a variety of dog and cat supplies. Winter here in the first photo brought her pup Bella with her to “try on” a new inside training crate. We up-sized her crate to give Bella more leg room and threw…
