Happy Tales


I wanted to share our amazing story about Parker. He was our sweet furry boy we adopted 15 years ago from Gigi at Atlanta Pet Rescue.

“Dogs have a way of finding people who need them and filling an emptiness we didn’t even know we had.”   Last summer, our beloved Lhasa Apso of 11 years passed away.
