brought you to SLCoAS? 7 years ago, there was a Pittie Pride event at the

the top of the list. My little shelter pup has taught me more about myself and
the world than I ever knew was possible. I am a better human being because of

Tinkerbell especially, and Martial Arts (though I haven’t trained in a
