When I was a little girl, I had a very simple wish for my future self - to be an advocate for animals. At age 5, I decided I would become a veterinarian. Also, I was going to have 4 children by age 24. Kids, right?
I achieved my prime directive - I advocate for nonhumans every day.
But I realized veterinarians often must cater to the needs of humans, and that giving birth to a child when so many need homes did not mesh with my ethics.
I live with two permanent canines and usually a third temporary canine.
Celeste hails from the streets of Mexico. I rescued her while participating in an amazing, life-changing, week-long spay/neuter camp in an extremely poor town in the state of Chihuahua in 2007. She was a 7-week-old puppy with big blue eyes and a Very Serious demeanor. Turns out she was lying and is actually a freak dog with great big ears and blue eyes. She loves Mina and is pretty adamant other dogs are all losers. She is a Germingo - a German Shepherd, Dingo Cross. Just kidding, I don't know what she's mixed with.
I help out every now and then fostering dogs for a local rescue.
I love photography with a passion and find many beautiful subjects at my job, education director at Animal Place, a non-profit sanctuary that rescues neglected and abused farmed animals and educates the public about animal farming and veganism.
I write about my experiences with the lady dogs, my fosters, work, photography, things that annoy me, and things that make me smile. Just like every other blogger out there, I suppose!
