Born a dog lover, I read the AKC Handbook cover to cover in the 7th grade, followed by a layman's Veterinary Handbook. I've been privileged to be the maid servant to some amazing dogs. My breed, my totem, is The German Shepherd but I love all dogs, big and small , and there are no ugly dogs in my book. I've volunteered at my local shelter and have rescued dogs off the street.
I started this blog as a place to, what else, talk about my dog . I also hope to share things , that things that work for us, that we love.
Shasta is my beautiful GSD, a kick butt, super intelligent, incredibly indulged girl. She's big and bold but also elegant and I wouldn't have her any other way.
Shasta has Exogenic Pancreatic Insufficiency and after much trial and error, or persistance, as my vet calls it, we've managed to find a routine that has her thriving. She is a good weight, not thin, and even gets table scraps. If your dog has this condition , I'd be happy to answer any questions and try to help. I will be doing a blog post on it as well.
We call NJ home and I also write The Beauty Alchemist , a beauty and fashion site and my email corresponds to that for now. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org
