How Are You Handling Your New-Found Fame? Great because I was already a local celebrity 🤣
If You Could Be Any Super Hero Who Would You Be? May not be a super hero, but I would chose to be a genie in a bottle so I could grant myself 3 wishes everyday! 1) extra belly rubs, 2) extra treats and 3) extra dinner !!
