Top Ten Dog Books for Kids
Books about dogs have entertained us for decades. Here are some of our favorites!
We recently moved to the area and needed a vet for our black lab. I asked a neighbor where he took his dog and he said Healthy Paws! I gave them a call and had a good 30 minute conversation with a very sweet, patient and knowledgeable lady! I dropped my lab off the next morning and picked her back up around 3:00. Everyone was so kind and professional! My dog was so "pretty" and "happy!" The clinic called me around 10:00 the following day to check on my lab! I am thrilled to say I have finally found a vet for our sweet girl!
