Event:
Love your dog? Then make sure you go to one of these classes
So many of us have dogs in our lives and they are a very important aspect of our day to day lives. We take them on walks, in our car, to dog events and enjoy our best furry friends who give unconditional love.

Without them, I know my life would not be what it is as they are always there to greet me with enthusiasm and glee when I get home and always hanging around wagging their tail if I speak to them.

I have lived on acreage, where there were many poisonous snakes around and basic first aid for dogs was something that I was not privileged to know anything about.

What a great article Finy and so important for the precious ones in our life. I'm glad to see this type of event. Interesting the snake caught in the rat trap. I'm not a lover of snakes at all.

well done.
