Gilly, Sunny, and Liam are Turbine’s favorite dogs to have around. Gilly, a white Collie, enjoys long walks, begging for scraps, fetch, and sleeping at the foot of the bed. Sunny, a sable Sheltie, is naturally an introvert and enjoys lots of time alone and prefers less noise, unless she’s the one making it. Liam, a tri-color Collie, enjoys long runs with Jason, licking people, trying to sit on furniture like a human, and endless games of fetch.
