We hadn’t been on long car rides before, but…

Our owners were a very nice older couple– we got to go on occasional rabbit hunting expeditions and we lived full-time in nice indoor/outdoor kennels. Our owners were super nice, but we weren’t indoor pets, so we weren’t exposed to lots of time with people, or all the ways of indoor living (like couches! And watching movies while having snuggle time!). One of our owners sadly passed away and the other has health issues and is not able to take care of us anymore. Three of us already found homes through CDR,…
