Congratulations Paisley, Tyler, and Emily!
Paisley and Emily both look sensational in white! Everyone at CGPR wishes you all the best!

Great Pyrenees and the community they serve.

CGPR could not be prouder of Lennix, a certified therapy dog through the Winston-Salem Dog Training Club. He volunteers regularly at Hospice, Senior Services, Walnut Ridge Assisted Living, Winston-Salem Nursing and Rehab, Middle Fork Elementary, and Lowrance Middle School. Look for Lennix in our upcoming newsletter.
