Guest Post by Brodie the Canine

I asked Brodie, the dog we're sitting for, to write a guest post for us today. I thought it would be a good idea for him to share his viewpoint of having us house sit and take care of him. I had a little trouble translating so I apologize to Brodie if I didn't get … Continue reading »
