We gave Frisco and Diego time out with the equipment. As you can see in the pictures, they truly enjoyed and loved all of it. From Frisco’s Petfinder profile: “Say hello to Frisco! He’s a 2- to 3-year-old, 50-lb. bully mix. He’s also lovable, huggable, kissable, and downright adorable! Frisco likes everyone he meets, including other dogs and cats. He can run, jump, play and put a smile on your face! The only thing Frisco can’t do is hear. That’s right, he’s deaf, but don’t let that scare you, because he is amazing!” Meet Frisco:

From Diego’s Petfinder profile: “Diego is a 1-year-old, neutered shepherd/boxer/pit mix. He weighs 50 lbs. and is up-to-date on all shots. He is very energetic and sometimes pushy, but good with cats and other dogs.” Meet Diego:
