Miss P, Miss P...

Only a few more days with "Miss P"...our nickname for Little Miss Pandora. She will go in Monday for her last check up & Health Certification and then board the bus bound for Jacksonville this Friday afternoon.

Sending you off with lot's of love & best wishes, Miss P...We sure will miss you! Love & Kisses, Phil, Petie, Max & Foster Mom & Dad
