Well it’s probably no any worse than those pine tree things that us humans use.
Hmmm…… what we have here is a copy cat. And yes that sounds like a valid criticism of some (ehem) of us.*
I can’t say this a question at our house – it is always “cookie”.
What a team player!
Laurent would automatically carol, “Honey, it’s for you.”
I’ve heard that doggie psychiatrists charge $60-70 and hour? I’d love to see their notes about the owners.
