The Pet “Auntie”

I have always loved animals, and for most of my life, have had 4-legged furry family members padding around. But right now, I don’t have any. That’s why I was so delighted to meet a few new furry friends this past week! The first of these was Koda. He owns my friend and colleague, Andie,Continue reading “The Pet “Auntie””
