yes, kudos to Amanda & Kara for helping this family out. they must be so very relieved knowing their dog is in such good hands while they catch their breath. they couldn't have asked for a better vacation spot for Piper. she may not want to go home after hanging out with Kara & The Mutants.
and, i hope the dad has a successful 'spring training' or whatever it's called for players like him in Surprise.
