Hey everybody! I just want to thank y’all for giving me the best friend a guy could ask for! I love him like a son (even if he farts constantly!).
Attached are some pictures of his new life. He’s been with me a year and he has made three friends,
Cinnamon has adjusted very well to her new home. She is spoiled rotten needless to say. She is at work with me today! Check out the photos!
Thanks again for everything!
