I have always had dogs from 2 Great Pyrenees, I moved on to three Westies, then 3 Yorkies, 2 Maltese, 2 toy poodles & 1 Imperial Shih Tzu love them all.

I am excited to have the opportunity to learn more about a more healthy way to feed these animal friends.

I had a quadruple heart attack and my little friends helped me get through the next two years They are doing great and because of their love and attention, I am on the mend.

I am 82 years old and they and my incredible son keep me going. There is peace in their beings which keeps me going.

God has given me dogs since I was very young and had asthma. Your guidance will help me keep them healthy and on the go longer. Every day with them is a gift from GOD!
