Friday, September 23, 2011


First I have to introduce the two dogs running my life right now. Lacy is a 3 year old Golden Retriever and (Mr.)Copper a 1 year old Bloodhound. I grew up in Germany where my parents always had Boxers for breeding and competitions. Often I went with my dad to dog trainings on the weekends and admired the partnerships between dog and handler. I always dreamed about having my own "paw"kids but my studies and living conditions just weren't dog friendly in the past. I immigrated to Canada in 2005 and after having a Boxer for two years (sweetheart Amy died of cancer way to soon), I now share my life with Lacy and Copper, two cats, some horses and oh yes a husband.

Talking about Inspirations, besides dogs I LOVE books so ending my first post with two autumn pleasure reads:
"The darkest evening of the year" by Dean Koontz (2007)
"Until Tuesday" by Capt. Luis Montalvan (2011)


  1. Your dogs are beautiful! I've never had dogs, but have 2 cats, one that I just got from the Tierheim in Munich. Animals can have such a positive influence in your life.

  2. Thank you! I agree that animals are truly helping to deal with daily life challenges with just being who they are! So nice to hear that you adopted a cat...what a lucky guy/girl to be found by you!

  3. When I learn how to send your blog out to friends I certainly will. Glad you are enjoying Caroline. Do you know someone famous from there? I will give you a hint....he competed in the Olympics for Canada.

  4. My husband actually knew Kurt Browning's dad Dewey. I saw Kurt briefly once. Now my husband and I enjoy watching "Battle of the Blades";)
