  • Be a responsible dog owner

    Some of you may know and many of you do not know that we have a fifth member of our family named Ben. Ben stands about a foot tall, likes to eat food that our kids drop for him, is a best friend to my son, and is a protector to my daughter. Ben is our 10-year-old Boston Terrier. He truly is a member of the family. Many of you reading this have a “Ben” too. If you don’t have a “Ben” then I would encourage you to get one—especially if you have children.
