That's neat Lyn Sims .  Before reading the Q&A's I was looking at my stats. One post this week had over 200 hits but just 9 comments (not counting my own) so it's easy to see others are reading what we are posting.

That's awesome. There are a lot of dog lovers in the real estate business. One of my rescues used to travel with me for showings, and he was generally in my office. When he passed, my clients who would drop by were devastated. They always came in and went right to his bed area first. I think they actually came to see him, rather than me.
