The Black Dog Newsletter “Many Thanks Edition!”
Just wanted to give a nice big greasy thank you to all who donated to help out our buddy, Danse, after the passing of his brother, Frank. The in-store donations, combined with Dylan’s Facebook birthday charity hoo-haw ,helped to raise a nice chunk of change for Danse (just north of $700!). Hoping that it helps him get by.
Also, wanted to let you know that there’s
