Re: [MOL] Dog Ob./ David/Lillian/David



Thanks for the great tips.  I think the Kong one may do the trick and will
be the first I will try.  No I don't have her on line; but will send you a
picture privately.  Great Dane's (this is our first, it was us or the pound)
are so funny.  She gives me many laughs and is good therapy for me. She
guards me; so I don't have to worry about anyone breaking into our home.  I
am so happy I said yes to her.  Thanks David, appreciate your help....luv,
u, lillian
