Story of Margaret and Sandy…. “As a dog owner I have never faced much trouble with Sandy. He has been a bundle of joy for me since he was born. Sometimes, it gets difficult to be calm, when he has chewed on your favorite pair of shoes, but otherwise he has been a wonderful companion. He is a great friend and is tremendously funny when he is up to his antics. He is always a joy to be around. I can vouch that there no other dog who is better than my Sandy”
