My Four-legged Best Friend
Dogs are truly man’s best friend. In my case, woman’s best friend! My dog Precious is the most special dog. Since the first day I got her, I knew I struck gold.

Presh is so sweet, she is even loves to cuddle and be close to me. For example, every single night she crawls into bed with me. Not only...
