First and foremost, we are dog lovers. Before we were married, we knew we wanted dogs, we knew we wanted large breeds, we knew we wanted more than one, and we knew we'd give them the run of the house ... furniture and all. Our old friend Ed Korczynski Sr. used to say "there are two kinds of people in this world, the ones who let their dogs sleep in their bed and the ones who don't." He was the former (with his three Golden Retrievers). So are we.
