Dog owners differ from pet to pet - whether you are a metropolitan pup-owner or a down-home dog-owner who's furry friend runs after chickens on the farm...
Love for animals and pets can unite and inspire many different types of people. Today, modern pet owners are working together to create dog friendly events/shops/restaurants and more!
