I've always been avidly interested in animals. Aside from dogs, my first pet was an angelfish, and I've been smitten ever since! Currently, our home is a constant state of chaos with four herding dogs, seven parrots, two turtles, one tortoise, and a reef tank. I am an active member of CPE agility, Teacup Dogs Agility Association, APDT Rally Obedience, and Dog Scouts of America. And yes, I earn my daily bread drawing dogs!
