Viola relaxes with her bunny

More: Viola spent her first nine months on the streets in the Dominican Republic. My daughter, Dr. Martha was volunteering at spay and neuter clinic in the DR, when she spotted the skinny 9 month old street dog. .Martha sent a photo of Viola to me along with her professional assessment, “she’s a smart and sweet dog”. I was smitten and Viola is the perfect farm dog at Wilder Hill Gardens, my nursery in Conway, MA. She chases away the deer, alerts me to porcupines in the pear trees, and greets visitors. She is also a big fan of the couch and a warm house, especially in winter.
