Meet Missy, my first furry friend, a five-dollar investment from the pet store that turned out to be one of the smartest decisions my parents ever made! At the tender age of two, I embarked on a journey of learning to respect, love, and care for my little puppy.
Little did I know, Missy would play a pivotal role in shaping me into the slightly (okay, maybe more than slightly) crazy animal lover and photographer I am today! While my parents invested quite a bit more in my nutrition degree from UC Davis, it’s amusing to note that my education didn’t include any classes on the art of raising a playful, four-legged companion like Missy. Life’s funny that way, isn’t it?
