Coffee with a canine: Anna Mitchael & Isabella

Today's featured Texans at Coffee with a Canine: Anna Mitchael & Isabella.

Patient parents and grandmothers can take heart that their wisdom is not perpetually ignored.”
—Prudence Mackintosh, Texas grandmother and author of the Sneaker trilogy: Thundering Sneakers, Retreads, and Sneaking Out
