Ep 47 - Ryan of Not That Ryan Reynolds YouTube Channel shares how Carson’s personality is larger than life!

This episode:Carson an Akita mix is the long awaited best friend of Ryan.  He’s 3 years old now and was adopted at 7 months.   His work ethic for toys is awesome and so fun to hear about. At the time of interview Ryan was up in Canada staying with family up there so you’ll hear about snow and their van life trip from Texas to Canada.  I think what I love most about Ryan’s interview is the detail and humor shared with us that undeniably shows how loved and appreciate sweet Carson is!  The descriptions and the personification of Carson is so comical and so Ryan.  I can’t tell you how much I’ve enjoyed getting to know Ryan since last June and I hope you will go to watch the super helpful video’s on Ryan’s YouTube channel called Not that Ryan Reynolds. Ryan’s Social Media:Not that Ryan Reynold’s YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMN7D5rd9H0TXI1MNiSLuKAInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/not.that.ryan.reynolds/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Not.That.Ryan.Reynolds/About: This podcast is for dog lovers to share and hear about dog stories, training tips, and other helpful bits of information. Please review and subscribe to the Dogs are the Best Friends podcast as that helps others find us!
