My family was a cat family. Our first cats I knew were Watson* and Kritter. We found Kritter outside, her tail had been cut short, and she became my cat. Our cats which followed were Lucy Woo** and Bing Clawsby***. *Watson, as in, assistant to Sherlock Holmes. And yes, my parents had a cat named … More On Becoming a Dog Person
I’ve been a dog owner for a hot minute, but I am quickly learning dog products I like and don’t like. For example, I do not like pig ears. At least, not for my dog.
