After being a pet owner for decades, I am thrilled to be part of the pet health care professionals here at Fur and Feathers Veterinary Care. Having been a history teacher for 33 years, I love making the transition from nurturing my high school students to helping nurture our beloved pets.

I am the very proud and happy owner of five Golden Retrievers. I am also blessed to be Mom to two loving sons and Nahni to 3 beautiful grandchildren. My children are grown and gone, so now I share my home with Goldens, and they share all their pet hair with me! I would not have it any other way. I never worry about being cold at night, as my bed is one of their favorite places to sleep.

Finian, age 9, is my rock- and sock-eater. Dr. Wittner, who has been my veterinarian for over seven years, may just put a zipper in him, if he needs any more surgery to remove some of his devoured treasures. Tierney, age 8, is my gentle blonde giant. Kateri, age 7 is mother to 23 children, from her 3 litters. Belleek, age 3, is from Kateri's 2nd litter, and a total love bug. Katya, almost 3, is from Kateri's 3rd litter, and a wonderful, exuberant little lady.

I have bred four litters, and follow the Code of Ethics of the Golden Retriever Club of America. Both parents have hips, heart, eyes, and elbow clearances. I hope to breed Katya in 2016. Drs. Wittner and Personett have done her radiographs for hips and elbows, and she passed with flying colors!!

To me, Goldens are like potato chips - you cannot have just one. Much of my spare time is spent keeping them groomed and happy. I also have a love for photography and have enjoyed documenting the renovations here at Fur and Feathers Veterinary Care.

Seeing Fur and Feathers Veterinary Care grow from a mere idea to a state of the art clinic, just a short six months later, has been amazing. Being able to be part of this process with my best friend, Dr. Diane Wittner, has brought true joy. Coming to know Dr. Leslie Personett and learning a lot from her
