Dog Stuff vs Human Stuff

Human stuff vs dog stuff illustrated.

Less time for visiting my friends online. Less time for having fun. Less time for playing with my dog. All because I have too much stuff to get rid of before I sell my house. How much better off would I be if I just had dog stuff and not so much human stuff?

Is it chewy? Does it squeak? Is it a ball? Every dog has different favorites. But Honey’s favorite toy has some unusual features. Can you guess what it is?

My dog Honey is a Mary Poppins pup—practically perfect in every way. It’s the result of getting the absolute best start in life, years of training, and just dumb luck. But you know why she’s just “practically perfect?” Because people keep screwing up my dog.
