They both are dog lovers and have two German Shepard’s,  Xena and Samsun. As some people say “If people had hearts like German Shepherds, the world would be full of love, loyalty, and head tilting….lots of head tilting. When I look at my German Shepherd, I don’t see a dog. I see a friend, a family member, a protector”
