2011: Adopted our miniature dashchund, Scooter
My family is my world. God has richly blessed me with three beautiful children and a wonderful husband. I have a love of animals especially miniature dashchunds. (Growing up in the country we raised horses and sheep. I was a part of 4-H for many years.) In my spare time I enjoy photography and digital scrapbooking. Attending church is part of my normal routine. In the summer my husband and I enjoy attending shows with the CLO at the Bendum in Pittsburgh.
