Piper pet of the week

Piper better known as “Hyper Piper” is a very energic 17-pound Boston Terrier. She is seven years old, but you would never know because of all the energy she has.

She loves fetching ball and will do it for as long as you will throw it for her. Piper’s favorite word is “TREAT”. If you want her to do something, “treat” is the magic word.

Her favorite thing to do besides playing ball is to give you kisses.
