Last year I adopted my pup, Ginger (street name "Fluffy G"). She is hilarious at the dog park - some of the bigger dogs will chase her, but she's fast so she'll turn on them and start chasing them - she can hold her own! ;)
Love animals and have been vegetarian since 7th grade, so I don't eat meat, but don't mind if you cook/eat it. I love to cook (I'm part Italian and grew up in a house that constantly smelled of tomato sauce!), so bonus points if you like to load a dishwasher or if you like to cook, too!
I believe in the power of mindfulness, meditation, yoga, acupuncture, and food as medicine. We as animals have so much untapped intuitive potential within us and I'm so curious to learn more. I see that animals can read our energy better than we can and am fascinated how they pick up the smallest details (posture, tone of voice, overall energy).
It's important to me to take care of our planet and live in a thoughtful way. I'd love to see a recycling barrel next to every trash barrel in our cities and animals rescued from shelters rather than purchased from breeders. We've got to take care of each other. ;)
I try not to take myself too seriously. I laugh at myself (you should see me in full rain gear getup when I take Ginger out for a walk in the pouring rain!) and I watch the Daily Show, well, daily on hulu. Saw Jon Stewart in person and laughed for 90 minutes straight. My face hurt so much. It was amazing. Also a big fan of NPR.
