A Differing Kind of *Werking* Dog!

Today we highlight some pint size pooches who are small in size, yet are working bone-a-fide jobs worthy of any big dog.

I don’t know a single person who regularly goes to a dog park and does not have some sort of crazy story to tell.  It’s like high school all over again.  Add tons of cute dogs to the mix and you have Animal Planet written all over it!  Soooo - we decided to create Dog Park!
