Muffin’s Monthly Musings for December

DON’T PANIC I am still here!!!!! I know you missed me last month, but the tapping human was sooo cold the wriggly things on the ends of her front hooves wouldn’t work properly, even though she tried some fluffy hoof boots on them. Or at least that’s what she said…..I also heard that all the […]
