Parka, the Puppy

Parka is now Lucy Lou "and my favorite thing about her is how well she has blended with my 6 year old dog. They are very happy together. She’s a delightfully naughty little dog and chewing and potty training are our challenges like anyone else with a new puppy. We have 3 cats and she’s so curious about them. They are less than enthusiastic about their new sibling."
