This is my swimming partner John Henry He & I not only swim every night during summer, but when I throw his swim toy across the pool he immediately jumps off of his float & we have a swim race to see who can get to it first. He is quick, competitive & out swims me every time. He is an extra friendly American Stafford-shire . My name is Stephanie Albright Ovilla Texas

Casper says "ahhhh." So cool, but, look at me, "pretty" huh? I live on a farm in Thornberry outside of Wichita Falls. I belong to Leeanna Hardee. My favorite thing to do is ride with Mommie in the golf cart going out to feed and water all her "other" pets. Horses, goats, Llamas, chickens and peacocks. I also have 5 dog brothers and one sister. They were all rescued. BTW...everyone has had their day at the Vet (we all have been "fixed").
