Dog Of The Week: Tamere

Posted · Add Comment

Whenever I picture Tamere, I picture here in a ballerina costume. She’s a tough feisty female. She’s a very girly dog and she owns every bit of it. Tamere is a female in charge and she is 100% ok with letting you know that. I should know. You see,  Tamere and I have a very […]
