Here’s my experience of adopting a rescue and the eventual change to purchasing a puppy.

Often times when we hear of adopting a dog, the likeliest possibilities are that the dog is (A) a mixed breed rescued stray dog or (B) an abandoned pure breed who was no longer cared for by its family and surrendered to the shelter.

I am a naturist. And I love being naked in places that allow me to be. “Free body culture” as the Germans call it, this love for nudity stems from the wonderful feeling of bringing oneself closer to nature. But don’t confuse that with being an exhibitionist — whose motivation is a desire to be seen and admired by others.

Here’s some tips I’ve learnt along the way.
