Brooksie Leash System Review - mamanonthetrail.com

I received this item at no cost to facilitate my review. All opinions remain my own.  Kirby is a fairly well-behaved dog. If we are in an area that permits off-leash, then he would be off-leash.

Boobs, breasts, milk makers, tatas, lolos, whatever you call them. I mean, we can’t talk about a breastfeeding accessory without talking about breasts. I find it strange to spend so… Read more »
