We’ve all heard the expression of a “crazy cat lady.” Well, dog people can be just as special of a breed of human. We want to take our dogs places, and not just to the dog park. Most of us think of our dogs as a member of the family, one of our kids and our best friend. Typically we go places with our human best friends, why not our four-legged ones?
