Their Only Fault, Really…

“Dogs lives are too short. Their only fault, really.” ~ Agnes Sligh Turnbull ~ It’s turning out that grooming day, or spa day, as we like to high handily call it in the Burch house, it becoming eventful.

Before anyone says anything we do not make a habit of this and do not give him what I’m about to tell you on a regular basis… …with that said, our dog, Watson thinks chocolate is crack.

Chocolate, Godiva and Crack for Dogs, by Beverly Hicks Burch

If I do eat something sweet, I prefer something fruity, or a cup of yogurt. I am more of a crunchy, salty, savory type of gal.
