Introducing Gina

It’s been quite an adjustment for Sanchez, as an only dog for all these years. I was pretty worried at first, but I’d say they are getting along pretty well now, wouldn’t you?

And when she finally tires for retrieving her ball, she loves to curl up and listen to Through a Dog’s Ear.

What toys would your dogs go to sleep with at night if they could? And what helps your dogs curl up and go to sleep? Thanks for posting a comment below.

You have beautiful babies. Thanks for the info on Through a Dogs Ear. I am going to find a couple for my beautiful golden lab friends that live downstairs. Good Work.

I also have two labs and they have many similarities with Sanchez and Gina only are named Murphy and Sally. They relax by listening to the various Through A Dog's Ear recordings downloaded to my ipod. We have an upcoming trip to Spain and I, too, don't want to leave them behind - would really be more content being an arm chair traveler so my canine sweeties can be part of the adventure!
Best wishes Lisa,

Very Sweet. I had a Golden Retriever who lived to play ball. She, too, would have slept with a ball in her mouth, if we would have let her. They're all so sweet and so loving.
