"I have always loved animals. My dream is to own and ride my own horse
one day. It would be fun to have a large enough property to have lots of
dogs and other animals! There is nothing better than coming home to your
dog who is always happy to see you, greets you with enthusiasm and is so
darn cute you can forgive them for any transgression. They are there to
comfort you when times are bad, and can help you stay warm on a cold
winter's night. They are pure love."

Yoshi.
I enjoy meeting and caring for so many sweet and fun dogs, and
experiencing their great spirits and personalities. When I am not walking
dogs, I am probably running or working on knitwear, fashion or other
creative projects.
