I’d/I/I’ll:Kelly
I’d be lost in life if it wasn’t for my overwhelming sense of curiosity and need for adventure/ I am motivated by food/ I’ll have a mature sense of humor one day (its doubtful but tides always turn)

My First Pet:

Taffy – I was 5 years old, my sisters had a lot going on and my Mom & Dad asked what I wanted -not wanting me to feel left out. My response, “A dog” (it was even my first word).  They took me to the animal shelter and there was a litter of black and yellow lab mixes. Taffy was hyper and shy all at the same time and totally covered in filth – I knew that would be the one for me. He was my boy for 14 years and largely responsible for the path I have traveled.  I am so grateful for that head-strong mutt and the foundation he created.

Favorite Guilty Pleasure Song:

Manfred Mann – Doo Wah Diddy. Makes me smile like non-other. Every time I hear it, I am instantly transported to childhood. My younger sister and I used to dance on our beds and sing it while we were supposed to be sleeping. I can still hear my parents storming up the stairs…

In my spare time I can be found:

Hiking with my dogs, canoeing/kayaking, fixing up my home, lounging with my 4-legged crew, at the barn with Sunshine, boating with my family, cheering on the O’s or Ravens, sharing laughs with friends, trying new restaurants or frequenting favorite ones – I love food!

Current Pets:

  • Frankie – Husky/Springer Spaniel Mix
  • Owen – Tabby Cat
  • Sunshine – 34 yr old Quarter Horse
  • Thomas – Terrier Mix

I’d/I/I’ll:STL_6464

I’d love for all of my days to be spent scuba diving, kayaking and /or bicycling. I am active in wildlife conservation with a strong interest in protecting our oceans and the fragile animals that call them home/ I’ll admit it, my husband Bill is my best friend!

My First Pet:

A stray tabby cat we named Sammy! Mom said we couldn’t keep him and she released him in the morning, only for him to come back to us the next evening begging to be let in…the rest was history…we were owned by a very special cat!

Favorite Guilty Pleasure Song:

I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas – Anyone who knows me will attest to my, sometimes unruly, addiction to four-legged friends…an Elephant named Blueberry?

In my spare time I can be found:

Enjoying the great outdoors, Looking for Sand Dollars and Conch Shells, Traveling to foreign lands, Finding those little off-the-beaten-path restaurants and pubs that only the locals know about! Have deep, in-depth conversations with my dog…she’s a great listener!

Current Pets:

  • Bella – 7 ½ yr old English Mastiff
  • Kila – 8 yr old Chocolate Point Siamese….the ruler of the house!
  • Tally – Yellow Lab

I’d/I/I’ll: I’d love a quiet get away / I may not be right but I’m a heck of a lot of fun / I’ll be serious only when I have to be

My First Pet:

Hucky – A Husky/ Shepherd Mix. My friends adopted him from a shelter for me while on vacation – they snuck him into the hotel in a lettuce box. He was so tiny he didn’t even leave paw prints on the sandy beach. One evening while a little inebriated, I tried to say Husky & it came out Hucky and thus his name.

Favorite Guilty Pleasure Song:

Good Vibrations – Marky Mark & the Funky Bunch. It was popular during a very “good” period of my life and it makes me happy.

In my spare time I can be found:

Spare time? Unless it’s fall – then you will find me jumping in front of the TV like a Jack Rabbit cheering on my “Fighting Irish”. Otherwise, I am most likely chasing down huge fur balls in my house before they grow legs & I end up with dog #4!

Current Pets:

  • Nikki – Black Lab
  • Marli – Lab/ Rotti Mix
  • Sydni – American Staffordshire Terrier/Boxer/Beagle/Lab Mix….aka a Mutt!

I’d/I/I’ll: I’d rather be at the beach / I can surf and love being outside / I’ll go to a wine fest any day!

My First Pet: A pony named Padre. He bucked me off many times but I still pursued riding.

Favorite Guilty Pleasure Song:

Any Beyonce Song = “Don’t Worry. Beyonce.” And whatever the DJ plays because, “I just wanna dance!”

In my spare time I can be found:

Going out to eat- Nachos &  Margaritas are my favorite!, enjoying the weather outside during my favorite season: spring, shopping at Target – I can never get out of there without spending $100!, or at home on the couch watching reality TV or napping.

Current Pets:

  • Pineapple – Blind rescued cat from Defenders of Animal Rights
  • Sunny – Yellow Lab
