This is a Christmas card photo I got today from Jodee and Dan of Hundenruhe Haven Senior Dog Sanctuary and Terrier Town of precious Olive and Baci. Aren't they the cutest??!!?! They star in my book Frankie, the Walk 'N Roll Dog as two friends of mine that I met at the Farmer's Market in Elkhart Lake a copule of years ago. Jodee and her husband Dan have really big hearts and take in senior dogs. Much of their hard earned money goes to taking in and caring for senior dogs that would have not otherwise had a home. They are such wonderful people and all the dogs that get to live at their cozy house are so lucky, aren't they? You can learn more about them from an article my mom wrote about them. We think they ROCK! Arf-a-roo!
