The New Trainer Meets Frisbee - I'm Shocked

The New Trainer Meets Frisbee - I'm Shocked Yes, shocked.  Why might you ask?

Put Your Dog Down or Die On Its Own-You Might Think Different After Reading This

If you have a dog or have ever had a dog you've probably been faced with having to decide when the right time was or is to put your dog to sleep. It's the hardest part for sure of having a dog, or any pet for that matter.
