Artie is the adorable & loving rescue dog adopted by Sarah in 2015. The Groggy Owl would not run as smoothly without the important role Artie plays. When Artie's not snooping around to make sure fallen beads aren't actually treats, he loves sitting by Sarah's feet - always ready to give moral support in the form of cuddles & kisses!
