Tony and His Driver Jill

Jill carried Tony into the CSU destress event for HABIC this winter and immediately drew a crowd. Orange, calm and regal Tony the therapy kitty had arrived. With such an usual occupation I knew I had to interview Jill about the fabulous life of Tony. He’s the most confident and laid back cat I’ve ever met and Jill says her only roll is to be his driver.

Therese Monkeys Around

Therese Kopiwoda shares a hysterical childhood tale of an unusual family pet in the Tales with Tails Podcast. Therese and I met on-line in her livestream group #PetLoversTribe a few years ago. While that group is now dissolved we all still stay in contact and are great friends (like Tricia in Cheesy Riedi episode). Therese even designed this website!

Jess & Lupe

Jess gushes about their very special chihuahua, Lupe, in this Tales with Tails Podcast episode.

Jess and Mat have fostered 46 pups over the years but Lupe is the only pup to join the fam permanently. Jess relates the tale of Lupe’s journey to their home, how Lupe helps all the fosters and what Lupe means to them.

I met Jess several years ago through my photography volunteering. Jess has helped me photograph adoptable pups, teach me how the local rescue and foster programs work, and has become a great friend. Their heart for animals and the well being of all life is felt in everything they say and do. 

Thank you so much Jess for telling us all your Tales with Tails.

Cheesy Riedi

Season 2 of the Tales with Tails podcast kicks off with my first interview! Tricia Clement’s shares her tale of baby Riedi being very cheesy. 

Monique and Tricia in Atlanta GeorgiaI met Tricia way back in the #PetLoversTribe and PetScopeTV days. We livestreamed with other pet lovers every day telling our pet stories and becoming friends. In January I met up with Tricia while at the Professional Photographers of America conference in Atlanta, Georgia. Her pups are enjoying chasing squirrels at their new home and are her constant work companions in her home office. If you are a pet business needing social media management and consulting she can help! 

Tricia is a social media manager and consultant specializing in pet businesses and video at her company
