I have just recently been able to receive a dog, whose owner has been placed in hospice care. This dog, Brownie, is just a joy to have. I encourage anybody who wishes to have a dog or cat to go out and look for one. The love that they give is worth all of the effort that you put into owning it. Don't be afraid of becoming an owner. A dog is like a member of your family. All it takes is a lot of tender loving care and you will receive much love in return. Please support the Bay View community.
