Believe it or not the website has been updated and a site specific calendar has been launched. This calendar is fully customizable for our own events and reminders. If you have anything you would like to put on there then please feel free to try it out. Use the link on left side of the page to navigate to it.
Also, a reach out to anyone out there familiar with web design that would like to help with the site; I would like to get a new (and much needed updated) puppies page launched and could use some help from someone with experience. I also have quite a few behind the scenes fixes that need tending to which I could use some assistance with. Please inquire to email@example.com if you are interested!
