Recognizing Great Women and Canine Companions

Have you told the women in your life that you adore, respect and love them lately? Whether it’s your sister or your best friend, be sure to share some much needed gratitude toward the ladies in your life. Not that they don’t deserve it each and every day, but today is especially important because it’s International Women’s Day! In honor of this important holiday that dates back to 1909, we are recognizing women and their dogs. Oh, and ladies.. thank you for all that you do. You are amazing!
