Pets are a staple all around the world.  They’re part of the family.  They’re used for hunting, security, service for handicapped & our military, in law enforcement.  As you can see I am leaning towards discussing “man’s best friend.” They are prevalent from the time we wake to the time we go to sleep at […]
