I should have known that it was all over for me when I

rescue dogs going through this cleanup. She comes and
checks on every one of them to make sure that they are OK.
The concern on her face is amazing.
This is Timer after we are all finished with his cleanup.
He has a great time romping in the grass and letting
everyone know that he feels great.
