Message from Dreugan the dog:

“Make sure to bring your pets. Though I don’t care for other dogs Amigo the dog does (picture two) and it’d give me a break of playing and just do security and sleep, play when I want to. All Amigo wants to do is play, I can’t do my job while playing all the time, well I can but don’t tell Amigo.” ~Dreugan~
