jp dog parade

Baci, small business owner of Baci Naturals


I had the pleasure of meeting this little munchkin and her human mama at last weekend’s dog parade in J.P. One of the many delights of doing this blog, is that I get to regularly hear love stories about humans and their dogs. But I find myself particularly touched by this human-dog pair.

About this J.P.Dog:

Baci is a rescued 13 year old Mini Pomeranian. “Baci was 10 years old when I rescued her. Being an older dog with considerable digestive and dental issues, her chances for finding a forever home weren’t good. When I looked at her, all I saw was perfection. I did not adopt her out of pity. I simply just fell in love with her on the spot.”(Continue for more photos) (more…)
