About your dog(s): Obi is my heart- he is a 6 year old, permanently incorrigible boxer mix. He drives me crazy but he has a heart of gold. He is a blood donor and he has been used for education in schools and has worked at a hospice program for kids who have lost a parent.

Buddy is my soul. She is a 13 year old pit type who embodies everything I've ever wanted in a dog. She is soul shine.

Both are adopted from the HS.

Interests: politics, BSL, HGTV, travel, my husband.

Favorite music: eclectic. Whatever makes me happy but my car radio is always tuned to CBC radio.

Favorite book: I like memoirs. Angela's Ashes by Frank McCourt is the first one that popped in to my head. But also Night by Elie Wiesel.

Favorite quote: (even though I'm agnostic)

People are often unreasonable, illogical,
and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, People may accuse you
of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some
false friends and some true enemies;
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank,
people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone
could destroy overnight.
Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness,
they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today,
people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have,
and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you've got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis,
it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.

Random fact: I met my husband in high school on a trip to Washington DC even though he only lived 20 minutes away and my mom used to work for his grandpa.

Put up pictures of yourself and your dogs of course!!

Me (in my current state)


I talk to him when I'm lonesome like; and I'm sure he understands. When he looks at me so attentively, and gently licks my hands; then he rubs his nose on my tailored clothes, but I never say naught thereat. For the good Lord knows I can buy more clothes, but never a friend like that. ~W. Dayton Wedgefarth

Buddy Girl - 2000-2013. "Blessed is he who has earned the love of an old dog."

Obi - 7 year old Incorrigible Dog.

About your dog(s):
Meg: Perfection in canine form. Rescued at a year from a high kill shelter, the kindest dog ever with humans, serenades every cat she sees, best snuggler on the planet, has her PDCH (agility championship) and basically gets whatever she wants at this point.

Gusto: My half BC/half alien puppy. Rescued, for the second and last time in his life, at about 5 weeks from an abandoned trailer. Is convinced the world exists for his pleasure and amusement. Believes that gravity is optional. Makes me laugh more than I ever though possible. Is madly in love with my horse. Slowly learning to be an agility star, when he isn't too busy eating pigeon poop or doing handstands on the jumps.

Interests: Dogs, especially agility and training. Dressage. Photography. Reading. That's about all the interests I can afford!
Favorite music: Broadway musicals, some newer folk-ish stuff (Avett Brothers especially), some fairly mainstream stuff (Coldplay, Snow Patrol) some country.
Favorite book: Good Omens, right now. Ask me tomorrow, it may be something else. Good Omens stays near the top anyway.
Random fact: I have six screws and 4 metal plates in my head.

I can't recall the last time I had a picture taken of myself. I'm usually the one holding the camera! Here's the kids though.

Occupation: Student

Age: 19

About your dog(s): Trent, 4 year old German Shepherd Dog. Awesome dog of everlasting patience, good humor, and all around incredible-ness.

Interests: Listening to music, shopping, clothes and shoes, watching movies, food, picture taking and photography.

Favorite music: Lana Del Rey, Ed Sheeran, Vienna Teng, Birdy, Bon Iver, Laura Veirs, Florence + The Machine, and Ludovico Einaudi (piano instrumentals). Like Fran, I also love film scores, especially the ones from How To Train Your Dragon, We Bought A Zoo (Jónsi and Sigur Ros), and Cloud Atlas (Tom Tykwer and Johnny Klimek). And I love, love, love listening to musical soundtracks from Les Misérables and Moulin Rouge!.

Favorite book: Merle's Door by Ted Kerasote, and The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein.

Favorite quote:

That which we manifest is before us; we are the creators of our own destiny. Be it through intention or ignorance, our successes and our failures have been brought on by none other than ourselves.
— Garth Stein, The Art of Racing in the Rain.

Being alone is not the same as being lonely. Being alone is a neutral state; it is like a blind fish at the bottom of the ocean: without eyes, and therefore without judgement. That which is around me does not affect my mood; my mood affects that which is around me. The subjective nature of loneliness, which is something that exists in the mind, not in the world, and, like a virus, is unable to survive without a willing host.”
— Garth Stein, The Art of Racing in the Rain.

My thoughts are stars I cannot fathom into constellations.”
— John Green, The Fault in Our Stars.

Random fact: I used this last year, but I still can't ride a bicycle. I'm surprised that Oregon hasn't kicked me out yet!
