My great-grandparents came to the USA from Germany and settled in Chicago. I'm sure they must have liked it here, because they married and raised their families here--the rest of us have been doing the same ever since!
Just curious. Currently my dogs are in their crates from 7AM to 12PM, then from 1PM to 3PM. But we are going to have to switch and leave them for 9hours straight. So just curious of how long other people leave their dogs.
