The city were Cocoa Joy lives is very dog friendly and this is just one example. Recently, a new park opened within walking distance of her house. She decided it would be fun to check it out and see what was there. Besides a walking trail that winds along through the woods, there are drinking [...]

This past Friday she had the opportunity to get to know two "Pits" at Dog School 101. From Cocoa's perspective, the greatest issue is: "What color to wear?" She looks [...]
