About Traci

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have been a full time dog owner for over 25 years when I fell in love with a 6 week old Border Collie called Sweet Magnolia Bell (Maggie for short). I gave up a busy career in the music business to be home with my puppy as she became my main priority in life. We found a lovely little house in Smyrna, GA with a huge fenced in yard and never looked back. While I was working in radio, I adopted Buddy from the Georgia Sheltie Rescue to keep Maggie company while I was away. Our little family was complete when I fell in love with Rex Nelson 16 years ago. We now have Maddy, a Border Collie mix, and Blue, our third Sheltie. I work from home in the shed in my backyard upcycling old furniture so I am home most of the day. The dogs love spending time with me in the yard but it has been so hot I only allow them a few minutes each hour to be outside then they cool off in the house. Our next door neighbor has a wonderful deck and is a dog lover too so most evenings are spent on the deck with the dogs in tow. The dogs rotate being on the couch when it's TV time. Maddy is a quiet type while Blue just wants to be loved and give love. They get along well with all other dogs they come into contact with. We frequently dog sit for our neighbor down the street and used to watch another neighbor's dog several times a week as he traveled. I am strict about not giving dogs people food so the dogs that visit get lots of hugs and kisses instead!
