I’m Cory. They say I’m the life of the party and I don’t deny it. I’m fun and easy to please. House, apartment — either is fine with me as long as you are up for a nice walk from time to time. My coat is easy care; an occasional brushing and seasonal grooming is all I need. Come visit; I think you’ll like me.
