Buster is a German Sheperd Standard Poodle Mix, Sheperdoodle. He is a therapy dog and I often have him in sessions with me – clients love him and he loves them. Maki is the new member of our family, a Burmese Mountain Standard Poodle Mix. I get new stories about them every day when they play together in our yard and it brings laughter every time.
