    I’ve been following Denver’s antics since her first guilty video with the cat treats. She has such a cute smile and I get such a kick out of seeing what she will do next. I have a dog who’s smiles this very same way and it’s such a joy to see that beautiful smile!

    I just love Denver. Reminds me of our black lab Lakota, who chewed up anything she could get her jaws around. She was the strongest lab I’ve ever seen. May she RIP 10.3.2014
