  • Gizzy Wonderdoglet 06/27/2013 GOOOO HANZ! *high paws*
  • Marianne Mickey 06/26/2013 You know what your doing here is great. I have a 10 year old little mut that I adore. I try and walk him the best I can But it is difficult becuase I have a lot of arthritis. I know that having a place to take Willo to run and play with being on a leash would be so healthy for her. I don't go to glastonbury becuase the dog park is located far beyond the park and it's too much of a walk for me. A dog park with good parking will help us senior citizens that do have dogs but no where to excersie them. I am not to good on the facebook but I can vote on here. I hope my votes are helping you little guy. All my love and a woof from Willo.
