I've been tagged by my new friend Sasha, to woo about my humans. They're pretty boring, but I guess they are pretty important since they feed me! So, here goes.....

Mom is an animal freak! Ok, maybe not "freak", but she does love them very much. She is a vegetarian. She supports lots of different animal welfare groups, such as the ASPCA, National Wildlife Federation, Defenders of Wildlife, lots of doggie rescue groups (see my sidebar), our local Nebraska Humane Society. She also sponsors Echo, a wolf, and Willow, a coyote at Wolf Park. She also participates in a transport group that looks for people willing to help transport doggies and kitties to new furever homes, or rescue/foster homes. We don't get many out this way, but so far she has participated in four.

She works for a local life insurance company that has been in business since 1890!! She is a Business Specialist in the claims department. She goes to lots of meetings, and is involved in lots of projects. Apparently she has to know everything about everything, so she can do anything that has to be done. Whatever the heck that means!

She is not from Nebraska originally. She was transplanted here by her ex, who was in the Air Force. She grew up in both Illinois and also Minnesota. She also spent four years in Japan, which is where she got her kitties, Alex and Kirby, who are both at the Rainbow Bridge now. She really wants to go back to northern Minnesota, cuz she knows that would be a great place for us since they get lots of snow, and don't have the heat and humidity like we do here. Plus, Nebraska is pretty boring, and Minnesota has lots of lakes and forests and much more fun things to do. All we have here is corn!

Dad is an electrician. He works at a really big place where he is responsible for fixing things, and wiring things. He basically keeps everything running like it should. Wonder why he won't let us keep running like we should?

Dad is great because he takes us for walks every morning when he gets home from work. We really look forward to those! Then he feeds us our breakfast, which is the most important meal of the day!

One other great thing about my humans is that there is always one of them home with us! Well, unless they go somewhere together (like dinner) but we always have a napping partner. Dad sleeps during the day cuz he works nights, so we take turns napping with him. Mom sleeps at night, cuz she works days, so we have her to nap with then. You can't get any better than that!

We are pretty spoiled here. Considering the medical issues we all have, it's amazing they put up with us. We eat 3 different kinds of food because of diet issues. There are more pet meds and supplements in our house than there are human meds! Feeding time is always an ordeal to make sure everyone get their meds and the correct ones! We also have plenty of yummy treats, lots of which mom makes herself, chewy's, and lots of toys.

Mom and Dad also volunteer their time with Therapy Dogs, Incorporated. Kona, Abby, Samuel and I are all registered therapy dogs. We visit local nursing homes, assisted living centers, hospitals, and hospice care facilities. Dad always takes Kona, but mom takes turns with me, Abby and Samuel. Abby hasn't gone for quite a while because of her missing hair issue, but since it is starting to finally grow back, hopefully she will get to go again soon! We all love the attention!

Well, that's about it for the boring humans. I will tag Kelsey and Smokey, Star and Sherman, and our newest husky bloggers Quincy and Tristin.

Your peeps sound like good people. You guys are lucky!

Mom was reading about TDI for Bear, but I haven't heard if she's gonna do it. I'd do it, but I don't have the energy.

Oh, I just adore your mom... my mom agrees. She is the coolest mom around! How come Monty did not get a therapy dog license too??

Oh... I see Mav's crew is going to Omaha... super cool!


The Daily Echo said...

Wow Holly, your Mom sure is bizzy! I'm so flattered that there's a wolf named after me. If you move to Minnesota can I come visit? I love snow!

The Husky in the Window said...

Wow Holly, your mom is amazing! How does she do it all? I'm sure all of you help too! And it's cool that your dad is there all day. You'all get to have someone with you all the time. And you'all do therapy work. That's so wonderful. You have a good family.
