Other than my family, I am passionate about dogs and cats and doing whatever I can to fight animal cruelty, and to promote adopting from an animal shelter. That is why my first website and blog are about my personal animal rescue mission, that we call My DogPatch.
I've always loved dogs, but have only been in love with cats for the last 18 years. I live in the country with my husband and soulmate of 18 years.
People abandon their pregnant cats near us quite often. We hand-raise their offspring to control the feral cat population and then the kittens are re-homed.
My DogPatch's mascot is my puppy Buckwheat, a Great Pyrenees/Lab mix. If you are familiar with Pyrenees, you know why we are partial to them. Regardless, you are sure to enjoy the Feature Story at My DogPatch about Buckwheat's dad Buckshot, a Great Pyrenees that returned home after being gone for 8 months.
I always have heartwarming stories to write about and cute photos to share, so there won't be a shortage of things for me to blog about.
