Cooking Pinto Beans

Maxis a 2 year old Cocker Spaniel. Our little darling doggie was found wandering in a subdivision, had on a rabies tag, and they could not locate the people who had it. We think they simply moved away and left him
Cody (Collie Mix)
Cody is a 2 year old Collie mix. We got Cody 1 year ago from a rescue in New Jersey. He picked us out as we checked out all the dogs. He kept running back and forth in the cage to get to us each time we would round the bend again to check them all out. It was "love at first sight" for both of us.
