Greetings from NW Indiana!

I’m a 40 year old Chicago girl, transplanted to NW Indiana. I normally go by Kitty, but do use my given name (Cathy) professionally. I have a teenage son with mild autism. I am married to my second husband, who is the love of my life and my soul mate.

We have two beautiful rescue dogs, both big black “lab” mixes – although I have not had the money to get them DNA tested yet. Gypsy is my “big girl”; she just turned 6 and weighs 110 lbs. Tazzy (Tasmania) is the “puppy”, 2 years old, 60 lbs., and full of energy.

I have spent my life around dogs. I think the longest I have ever lived without a dog is 6 months. I started working with my dad’s Brittanys when I was young. I also have always enjoyed working with dogs and owners. I have recently taken the plunge into “professional training” at the urging of family and friends – we’ll see how it goes.

I know tons of people “with dogs”, but very few “dog people”. I’m hoping to make some friends in the latter category.

I’m a very open, honest, and direct person (hubby would say blunt). These are qualities I find very important, always present in dogs – sometimes lacking in our human friends. I try to keep an open mind about most things. If you want to know something else – Just ask!

Warmest Wags!
