Pickles' story

Being a woman that has been through the abusiveness of a spouse, I made a promise to the two dogs that saved my life, that I would always give back to the dog community. Many years later, I have been given the opportunity to own several brick-and-mortar businesses so that I can keep my promises. 


Pickles is one of my stories that make everything I do worth it.
