I couldn't imagine a day without the companionship and friendship of my dogs.
I've seen my kennel grow from my first love, Sasquatch.. a large and handsome Alaskan Malamute to what it is today, a kennel of 25 dogs. A mix of Alaskan Malamutes, Hedlund Huskies and Alaskan Huskies.
As a family, we are pretty devoted to one another.
I rarely take any time away from them other than when I am working during the day and on those rare days when I am either away for a day or two with friends, at a workshop or a race.
Then I hand over the caretaking to Richard who does a pretty good job of standing in my shoes and caring for them. They love him and he loves each one of them.
I'm so grateful to have a very supportive husband as life with animals is pretty much 24/7.
Originally a city gal from the UK, now I'm a 'bush' woman, okay... perhaps not in the true meaning of the word (though some days I really look like I could use a good shower!), but when I compare my life now to my urban city living ..... I feel like that was in a past life.
This is my home, this is my life.
When I'm not with the dogs, I work as a Personal Trainer and as a Lightworker (Reiki Master).
Both professions involve energy therefore, my cumulative name for the work I do could be
I also work with Angels as an Angel Communicator and Healing Therapist.
And then there's my art....
I've worked in the weight room for over 30 years and I've used a paintbrush for well over 40 years.
Working with animals is really just an extension of all of this.
It's what makes me whole and I see my work as 'one'.
