How long have you been a Puppy Raiser and how many dogs have you raised? (Include furloughed dogs and the one you are currently raising).

This is our first puppy.

What led you to Puppy Raising?

Covid 19…Remote schooling and I had a lot of time at home.

Ice Breakers

If you had one extra hour of free time a day, what would you do with it?


Would you rather be able to speak all foreign languages or talk to animals?

Talk to animals, of course

If you could visit one place in the world, where would it be and why?

I want to go Italy and visit my relatives. I would also like to visit the Blue Grotto in Capri Italy.

Are you a listener or a talker?

I am a talker.

Tell us your favorite part about being a Puppy Raiser and/or your favorite memory with one of the NEADS pups.

My favorite part is when Ginny greets you at the door when coming home, her puppy eyes, and her kisses!
