Re: Wolfdogs: Out of the Wild

It's pretty evident to me that Sheba is a product of boredom and lack of exercise. Simply having a big yard is not enough. Then they complain about her digging up the flowers, destroying the sprinklers and pots - well, look at their backyard, it's blank, bland and boring - a pit of dirt. There is no...
