About the Author

I’ve had a dog in my life for as long as I can remember.   I have owned six Miniature Schnauzers, two Pekingese, two German Shepherds, two Toy Poodles, two Cocker Spaniels, and a dog or two of unknown heritage. (Please do not sing “and a partridge in a pear tree.”) Needless to say, I love dogs!

One time world traveler (military), I now am retired to full-time blogging.

Our blog page is named in honor of Cleo, a Miniature Schnauzer, who will always be remembered as my kind, affectionate, and loyal companion.

I never met a dog I didn’t like, although there were several that could have gone either way!
