Gummy Bear and I rescued each other in 2011. She was a puppy mill breeder and afraid of everything! Now, we are a Pet Partners Therapy Team and a R.E.A.D. Team. This photo was taken while G-Bear was grooving at an outdoor pipe organ concert in San Diego. Gummy Bear prefers first class travel and 4-star hotels!
