      Thanks Jackie for comment. Appreciate it. I have always had German Shepherds but got a small dog a few years ago and she is great. Small dogs are easier to care for.

      Another great one. I love the big dogs if they have a big place to run out doors but personally fall more in love with the small ones. They just stay babies!
