Sampson and rock near his foot.

Rock HoundsWe love to look in our yard among all the gardens for interesting stones and rocks. When I saw how this rock resembled the state of Tennessee, I said "Look Sampson, a pretty rock!".

Take another cloth and buff. This leaves a beautiful shine and lasts a while. It is much cheaper than any store-bought brand.

Dog Peeing in Her Own BedI have a 12 year old female Pit. I go to work every day from 6:00 AM 5:00 PM when I get home. I leave her in the house by herself and she does great. When I get home I feed her, give her water, and take her potty. When I bring her back in the house, half an hour later she lays down on her bed and pees on her bed.
