My Pets

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

She loves:

  • toys of all sorts. She is a tough chewer so stuffed toys get torn to shreds instantly.
  • 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)
