Hello from Northeast Pennsylvania or NEPA as we locals call it. I’m Dawn, a cancer registrar by day, internet junkie by any other time with blogging included in that addiction.
While I now work in a human healthcare system doing work I love, I’ve been lucky to spend a lot of my time working with people and their pets. From co-owning/operating a grooming shop to veterinary assistant to customer service in an online pet company, I’ve worked in many aspects of the pet industry. I’ve also done a little bit of showing in dog obedience, the conformation ring and earthdog as well as training for canine freestyle and tracking. I’ve been out of dog sports for awhile due to lack of time (and money) but I’m planning on getting back in. There is so much you can do with your dogs these days and the dogs love it.
I live with what I affectionately call The Zoo Crew.
My dogs include 3 Jack Russells (some people consider me insane)- Ricochet, Havoc and Malarky with Mellie, the English Springer Spaniel being the odd dog out.
The cats include Omar, Pyro, Bitsa, Charm, Minuit and Poughkeepsie.
My ferret busyness (Did you know that’s what a group of ferrets is called?) is down to 2 ferrets, Hijinks and Amblin, from what was once 9.
My flock includes Suerto, a Hahns Macaw, Eco, a Senegal, Roca, a Congo African Grey and new arrival Kijivu, a Congo African Grey.
And last but not least, is my bunny, Glee (aka Ms Glee the diva bunny) an English Lop.
Can you tell I love pets of all kinds? And that’s what I blog about here on afFURmation. I share posts on different topics about different types of pets. Think you know a lot about pets? Starting back up in September will be the monthly contest Pet Pop Quiz where you get a chance each week to test your pet knowledge and get an entry into the contest. Stop back by or follow my blog doings on Facebook or Twitter for notice of the first Pet Pop Quiz in September.
Thanks for stopping by to say Hi! Please join me in hopping on to meet my fellow pet bloggers.
