They have two daughters and three granddaughters who bring much love and happiness to their lives. They also have two pets- Bebe, an ornery 6 lb. Pomeranian and Moonlight, a very polite cat who weighs 7 lbs. more than Bebe.

In addition to her husband, kids and grandkids, she shares her life with her Shih Tzu, Ivy.

Amy, Kennel Assistant
Since 2005, Amy has arrived to work bright and early to take the boarding dogs out for their morning stroll. She would consider walking the dogs one of her favorite parts of her job. Amy's sense of humor and her love of music make the kennel a fun place to be. When she's not busy working, she has her hands full caring for her Shih Tzu mix (adopted from OPVC, of course), Daisy, and her Corgi, Max 2.0.
