I don't currently have a dog, but have previously owned German Shepherds and Golden Retrievers. We are trying to get ready for an Australian Shepherd sometime next summer . I am currently attending dog grooming school and am looking forward to a career with dogs in addition to being a ceramist. I'm also "mom" to two cats - one Siamese mix who's a perfect angel, and one black kitty who tests my patience day in and day out. Nice to meet you!
