Pictured here is Greta who has appointed herself “kennel manager.”  She appeared on our carport one winter day in 2009 acting as though she lived here and has been with us ever since.  At first we tried to find her a good home, but when we discovered she was dysplastic and would need surgery we didn’t feel it was fair to burden anyone else with her care.  Now, of course, we can’t imagine not having Greta here to oversee the day-to-day running of our dog kennel. She’s alert, nosy, smart, friendly, and very active.  We now realize we couldn’t manage things without her.
