Ice Breakers

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

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

If you could visit one place in the world where would it be and why?
I’d like to go back to visit Yellowstone National Park. It’s a very quiet and tranquil place.

I’m a listener.

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

My favorite part would have to be people lighting up when they see Mindy.
