First, I do not want to diminish anyone's pain or challenges.
I can say that this should be a good year for me in terms of personal success. I faced challenges and overcome them, and let me make some suggestions.

They were wrong and the breeder (who I'm quite sure was gonna have him destroyed) from a bleeding heart who is so...

She is 4lbs 7oz oz and 17 inches long! They attempted to induce once, it failed so they had to try again. Needless to say it was a rather rough labor, however once I started to go through the process and having...
