I work full time, and am a part time college student on a break to recover from the loss of Blondie. I am training with Blanca in nose work and tracking. I lost my 13+ year old foster boy Bumble, on November 25, 2013 to cancer and complications from the possible DM that he had and on July 5, 2014, lost my special needs boy, Dakota James who had been DXed with DM, but had severe IVDD. I am often found on the DM Awareness Group, offering my tips and advice on how I dealt with and am dealing with DM, and special needs dogs. I am honored and proud to be asked to be on the Board in this momentous step forward on the road to finding a cure for the disease that shattered my life and stole my soulmate. I love you Blondie now and forever.
