    Three dogs on a walk

    Melissa recently bought a dual leash so one of us could take both Oakley and Gilligan on a walk. We have been amazed at how well it works. Now, because reasons, we have all three granddogs at our house for a short time. I decided to try taking all three dogs on a walk by […]
