How to add years to your dog's life
All of us wish our dogs would live forever, but their life spans are much less than we have as humans. While they will never live as long as we do, there are a few things we can do than might help them live a normal canine life expectancy. Check out this article, "10 simple things that can add years to your dog's life."
