Welcome to carina's Member Page
Moved to Michigan in August 2001, bought 5 acres with ponds, so I'm letting all my creative garden monkeys out to play and I have lots to learn, having only ever had small city lots to play with in the past. I love spending a day messing around in the garden, even if all I'm doing is weeding. Plus the house was built in the '40s, so it's an ongoing project...
I've been a painting contractor for over two decades, and am making the transition from painting to freelance writing, which may take a while. I've written a dog book (see webpage) which won the Dog Writers of America Maxwell award for "Best Book Under 100 Pages." I got to go to the awards ceremony in NYC during the Westminster Dog Show, which was really cool!
I'm also an assistant dog trainer and a general Dog Geek. We don't have children (well the guy I live with has two teenagers close by; we do see them a lot) so we can travel - I grew up overseas, a hippy brat - and will probably have the travelling bug my whole life.
Also owned by one cat, three Rottweilers, some fish, and one man. :)
I live in: United States
