My Pets

Daisy is the princess!! My mutt, part boxer, part beagle.

She loves:

  • treats of all kinds! Never met a treat she doesn't like, but her faves are pig ears, Purina Busy Bones, and Milk Bone Brushing Chews
  • bones, but please no rawhide (she'll throw it up because she eats too fast)

Comment: I agree with you Amanda. It is so easy to look at the negative things of both our countries but we are both lucky we live in countries where we do have security and freedom, especially as women. Blessings.

Hello! I am sending this swap on behalf of @trader1244 who is still sick and in the hospital.

I hope you had a great Halloween! I just got her partners names early today. I don't have any updates on Ann but am hoping to see her recovered and back on swap bot soon.

hugs

Debbie

I sat down and listened to the songs I hadn't heard on your themed playlist #5 "you can't fix me, I'm too broken". I LOVED your choices! You have great taste in music. I actually bought Dollhouse, The Taste of Ink, and Strawberry Gashes. Thanks again!
