I'm always surprised at the times I feel I have no more of me to give and then I see someone who needs compassion and empathy or just a simple hug because they have no one else. I'm amazed at the resilience of my heart.
What irritates you more than anything else?
Ignorant pet owners. There needs to be more education out there for people on spaying and neutering as well as general care and nutrition.
I can't stand to see a pet that's never allowed inside to be a part of the family. Dogs are not meant to be back yard decorations, and people who think that cats are too independent and therefor don't need love and contact~what rock were they born under? Animals reflect what we teach them. They really do want to please us. My heart sings when I see a happy animal and know that they landed in the right home.
How would you describe your connection with animals?
I'd have to say it's almost a spiritual connection for me. I haven't met a dog or cat that I couldn't befriend. Even the wildest ones that I couldn't pet knew I was there to help in some way. I have the patience of a saint when it comes to gaining the trust of a frightened animal.
Animals are our best friends, family members and healers. I can't imagine a world without them.
Thank you Miss KJ! This was a fun interview. xoxo

Who made the world?Who made the swan, and the black bear?Who made the grasshopper?This grasshopper, I mean-the one who has flung herself out of the grass,the one who is eating sugar out of my hand,who is moving her jaws back and forth instead of up and down-who is gazing around with her enormous and complicated eyes. Now she lifts her pale forearms and thoroughly washes her face.Now she snaps her wings open, and floats away.

This is my friend's little 12 pound Italian Greyhound, Mateo...Tay, for short. Or we call her Tay-Tay or Tay-O-Lay or naughty girl (because she is.) She's around 9 years old now and still sleek, fast and elegant. She looooooves Auntie Laurel! My friend said Tay knows when I'm coming over if I've called on the phone. She anticipates my visit and screams like a banshee when I get there. It's a crack up! She can be high maintainance because she needs it to be all about her (just like my dog) but she is irresistable. Look at that face! She's the 'cat of dogs' and knows only two speeds... lightening fast or sleeping.
