I can sniff out a tennis ball from a mile away. The first time I visited Silent Rivers, I knew it would be a good fit. I’m well attended to, get lots of treats and have become a master at finding the elusive tennis ball. Don’t tell my mom, but I think I’ve gained a few pounds since I started here.”
