Growing up we always had a dog. So it was only natural that we are a house of pets. We have 2 dogs and 2 cats. That's not crazy right? I always thought I was Team Dog, but when we got our first kitty I realized I'm really Team DOG CAT! How can you choose. They both bring different joys to our home. We love our pets. And I believe they are good for our wellbeing. Do you have a pet? Are you Team Dog or Team Cat or , like us Team DOG CAT? Thank you to Heidi, Haley, Winniefred and Zenyia (My Son named her).
