The two are thick as thieves and would benefit from continuing their journey together as best buds. This would sure alleviate any remorse of leaving one alone all day and provides the perfect playmate. If you’re reading this, you’re seeking the unconditional love only a furry friend can provide. Stop by today and welcome Freckles (and maybe his BFF, too) into your heart and home.
