Background Story: Both of our dogs are rescues from the South. Harper was from Texas and we adopted her at 13 weeks old in October 2018. She was our heart healer as we lost 2 beloved pups to cancer weeks apart earlier that year. When the pandemic started, we had some free time on our hands and decided it was a good time to open our hearts and home to another rescue. Peaches was found as a stray in Kentucky. No real idea how old she is but it doesn’t matter!
