I call this two girls and a guy, Pupster, on the right was rescued as a pup with distemper and nursed back to live a great life by Tami Stanley. Bunny, in the middle is the famous diving dog. She can dive up to 11 feet underwater to fetch her toys, Nick on the left is just full of life and one of the strongest retrievers I have ever seen. All three are owned by Tami, two are up for adoption and one is her Furrever Dog. Pupster and Bunny are females and of course Nick is a boy. I am just the lucky boyfriend with the pool Chris Falco
