SitStayRead is so excited to introduce our 2013 Dog of the Year...Howie! Howie is a 12 year old German Shepherd adopted in 2002, who loves rolling in the grass, tennis balls, and fashionable neck wear. Howie is a gentle giant who loves to cuddle. Many may be surprised by Howie’s true passion in life – consumer advocacy. Indeed, Howie has spent most of his life tirelessly investigating the deceptive advertising practices employed by chew toy companies. So, for companies claiming that chew toys are “indestructible” – Howie has accumulated about ten years’ worth of solid proof to the contrary! We are thrilled to welcome Howie to the SitStayRead family and to have him representing our dog teams this year!
