However, upon opening your front door, all you hear is kids screaming, loud music; you say “Hi!” to your family and no one replies. You shrug, hang your coat and head to your office. You feel miserable. Suddenly, you are warmly greeted by a special member of the clan. From whom might this welcome greeting have come? It is none other than Blacky, your lovely dog. read more
