Okay, you got it right this time: TeLing and her pit bull Lady from Dogs Give Us Their All. This is their story - the short version .
I adopted her from the Berkeley Humane Society in 2010. Three months later I got her certified as a Canine Good Citizen and she is in process of being trained as a therapy dog.

Lady is one of the most patient and mellow dogs I've ever met. She's had little kids literally dog pile on top of her. An 18 – month - old threw a fistful of sand in her face. I accidentally hit her in the head with my car door. And yet she still loves everyone and wants to be friends with anyone she meets. She is only fazed by squirrels and kittens.
I volunteer for Hopalong and Second Chance Animal Rescue, where my favorite things to do are to intake puppies and come up with names for litters Here I am cuddling 2 puppies from Hopalong.

I don't blog to make money or to make a name for myself. The main goal of my blog is to educate people about pit bulls and to help dogs find good homes. The rest is icing on the cake. I'm doing this for free and refuse to put any sort of advertising on my page.
Family is a big part of what makes me who I am:
My paternal grandfather was an ambassador to the People's Republic; therefore, a lot of my dad's and uncle's stories begin with phrases such as, when I was in Iraq. A lot of our family stuff belongs in a museum
My uncle was watching the news when JFK was assassinated. He burst into the room where my grandfather was meeting with other diplomats to announce the news. The room quickly cleared out, with everyone dashing to make phone calls.

I have no formal writing or advertising experience; it just comes naturally to me. This is due to the fact that I majored in psychology, which runs in my family. My mom got her Ph.D. in Psychology at age 60. My sister and I majored in it in college. My grandfather was a psychiatrist and my grandmother was a social worker.
