We live in a small rural home, a winterized cottage, 1km off the main road. We have 2 dogs an 8 year husky named Lady and a 2 year old Maltese Max. Lady is a talkative husky, but mellow. Loves walks and listens not too bad. Max is a my little side attachment. He loves to sit on your knee all day, and go for walks.
My husband works overseas and a couple of times a year I go and join him for a month to 6 weeks to break up the separation.
