Testimonials for the Paymaster’s Office

Dear Dawn, Darin and (last but not least) the Wolves,

Thank you so much for letting us come to visit where you live. You are all a very unique family and we are grateful that we could adopt Geronimo and Winston for our families.

We adopted Geronimo for my brother and his wife who will be very surprised to learn that they may have to start building an enclosure in their back yard….just kidding, of course. My brother used to yell “Geronimo!” a lot when he and our other brother were playing in the house. We adopted Winston for our son’s family because they have a rescue dog by this name.
We will be checking your site to see if Mika joins you as she may be the wolf we would like to adopt for ourselves.

Well again, thanks for everything. We love the cottage, the food and most of all the wolves you live with.
