A house is not a home if it doesn't have a dog or two! In my 40 something years I have always had a dog in my life. Nothing makes me happier than coming home to my baby girl. Bailey who is 10 years old loves have house guests and sleepovers. I live in a 1 bedroom cottage with a huge fenced in yard. I decided to dog sit because I wouldn't want to leave my girl with just anyone.
