I'm happy to say that Tilly's Tale has picked up another 5 star review at Amazon.com. this follows hot on the heels of the previous two reviews received this week. The 'wag-o-meter' on Tilly's tail is almost off the scale. It just won't stop wagging! Tilly also 'signed' a couple of books at the dog training academy yesterday.

As for Tilly, she's so happy her 'wagometer' has gone off the scale and her tail muscles must be… Continue
