Are you familiar with Corsa, the sweetest dog in the world? The one who does naughty things and gives herself away with her guilty dog smile..? Doesn’t she look sweet? She’s not too good about hiding the evidence when she has gotten empty cat food cans and licked them clean though… I think her cat […]
