I'd be a Boston Terrier. Most days I'm energetic, but even I can mellow out after a long day. Although I've been told I'm loud and sometimes obnoxious, I love everyone and am very talkative. Like the Boston, I'm a big personality in a small package.

Favorite Breed:
I have a couple favorite breeds including all Pitbull type dogs, Puggles and labs but Bernese Mountain dogs are my absolute favorite!

Fun Fact:
When I was 4 years old I was attacked by a Coyote at my family's vacation home in South Lake Tahoe. My dad was actually the one to rip the Coyote off of me. I had to spend 2 weeks at the hospital in Tahoe and received over 22 stitches in my face and neck for 30 wounds. One bite missed my jugular by only a centimeter. According to police, people in the area had been feeding the Coyotes that winter.
Why I like working here:
I love working at The Local Bark because even when I am in my worst mood the dogs turn my entire mood around and make me smile. It is hard to stay mad when you spend your day surrounded by loving dogs. I also love all the wonderful clients I have formed bonds with over the last 2 years and the pets I have gotten to watch grow up.

Labrador Retriever
If I were a dog:
I would be a Labrador Retriever. I'm generally a pretty happy gal. I enjoy socializing and getting to know new people, but am pretty loyal to my group of close friends. I like to work if it's work I like doing, and need a fair amount of exercise to stay sane. I'm down-to-earth and pretty low-maintenance. I certainly don't mind getting my paws dirty, but I clean up without too much fuss.
Fun Fact:
As a child, I wanted to be horse when I grew up. It was tough to learn that wouldn't be possible.
Why I like working here:
I love seeing content, happy dogs. More than most animals, their joy is contagious. But even more than that, I love how regular customers have such peace of mind bringing their dogs here. That was my vision before opening the facility, and it warms my heart to see it. Oh, and of course--it's pretty cool to work with my husband!
