Dogs at Harry Griffen--Gigi and Charlie

Gigi was dropped at the Humane Society shelter at 4 weeks old by someone who said they had found her on the street. Nancy Henderson's daughter, Kayla, who volunteered at the shelter, took her as a foster dog. It was love at first sight for Nancy. Gigi is now seven months old. Nancy thinks she is a Rhodesian Ridgeback. She loves to play chase. She eats so gluttonously that Nancy bought a slow-feeding dog bowl that prevents her from wolfing her food.

I had never heard of a bowl like that, but I found a a website that appeared to have some good information on the subject.
Nancy's other dog, Charlie, is a 5 1/2 year old blue tick hound mix. He had been abused by a previous owner, but luckily for Charlie, the man's girlfriend took the dog away from him, saying, "You can't have a dog if you're going to treat it like that!" Nancy has had Charlie since he was nine months old. He loves to play with Gigi, but he is afraid of people who come to their house, and hides behind Nancy
