About Mary

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have always been an animal lover, large, small, wild, etc. Having owned a farm in the country for 20 years I have taken on many rodents, deer, coyote, etc with my dog Frannie. I am not especially fond of chipmunks (even though Chip and Dale are my favorite Disney characters!). In the house and around the yard/garden they are pretty annoying. Having had groundhogs living in my basement and one getting into the house, I am not fond of them, either. Raccoons, possum likewise I have not time for as they have eaten one of the kids 4H bunnies, tried to stand off the cat and are basically nest pilfers. In that 20 yrs at time I felt I was on Caddyshack. I was about as good a shot as he was on the show.

Besides that breed of rodents, maybe throw the squirrels in that chewed through the side porch screen to get at the sunflower seeds (like sitting in the feeder wasn't enough), I genuinely love animals! I had dog as a child, have off and on sat for others dogs (the longest was a month during the summer for a Yorkshire terrier/poodle mix - so adorable). I love how they surprise you with how much they understand. I grew up with horses or other farm-type animals so I know the work it takes to care for them. The only restriction I have is using my home. Very small even for myself and Fran.

Mary is a carefree, adventuresome woman who knows what it takes to befriend those in her circle, for both human and animal friends alike. She fills her life with plenty of laughter, love and licks from the canine and feline companions in her care.

Mary is a dear friend of ours. She is super reliable, trustworthy and caring. We haven't spent much time with her and her dog, but when we do, you can tell that she just loves that dog so much. Mary has an active lifestyle, so her dog is in great shape and you can tell she eats really well.
