It's so cold here in Iowa that the only way the dogs can go for a walk and not hurt their feet is if they wear their dog boots. Cute, right? :)

As an amateur writer, I realize Part One of the Kavakian Empire needs a lot of work. Although I have some ideas of what is wrong, I sure could use some advice.  https://dawnrossauthor.wordpress.com/2015/05/02/first-encounter-improvements-i-want-to-make/

My dog Pierson barks a lot. This simple little trick curbed his barking by 70%, without training: https://americandogblog.wordpress.com/2015/03/06/managing-undesirable-dog-behaviors/

Story
Introduction
My Pet Business
I absolutely love dogs. I have owned at least one dog every day of my life. I love them so much that I have worked with dogs at an animal shelter and a boarding kennel. I have also volunteered with dogs at an animal shelter. I am a certified dog trainer and I currently work as an entrepreneur for www.PetAutoSafety.com and www.InformationWolves.com. I also have two blogs - www.PetAutoSafetyBlog.com and  http://americandogblog.wordpress.com/.
 
My Artwork
I love to draw animals and nature. My artwork is at www.NatureByDawn.com.

My Dogs
Maya is the dog I have now. She is an extremely friendly yellow Labrador Retriever (pictured in my Pet Auto Safety album wearing a dog car harness). I got her in in 2007 when she was three months old. I recently lost my Chow/Shep mix Sephi in November 2011 (pictured in my profile photo). She was 10 years old and I had her since 2001. In January 2012, I heard about two dogs living as strays for nearly a month in a park 45 minutes away. After visiting the park for three days, I finally caught them. I kept the Border Collie/Aussie mix and named him Pierson after the park. The other dog has been adopted. Pierson is about one year old and is a fantastic dog. He and Maya get along great!
 
My Fantasy Novel
I am also a book author. I have written a fantasy novel titled, "The Third Dragon: Book One of the Dukarian Legacy". Click the title to find it on Amazon.com. Or you can find it on CreateSpace.com. Check out my author blog at http://dawnrossauthor.wordpress.com/.

For the size of the restaurant, the weekend lunch buffet has a decent selection of vegetarian options. I love the dal makhani, the vegetarian saag, and many of the other dishes. The chai is fantastic too. This restaurant is small and it seems to be run by only a few people. Each time my husband and I have gone, we always have the same waiter. He is the only one waiter in the whole place. Sometimes he gets so busy that we have to wait for things, but he is always happy and helpful.

The moving guys were great. The service was awesome and just what we needed to help alleviate some of the stress of a move. We had no issues.

It is so difficult to find a mechanic you can trust. But this is the place! They never overcharge me or tell me I need something I don't. Once, I recommended them to a friend to get her car inspected for a long road trip. She had previously taken her car to another shop and was quoted over $700 for various things. The Automotive Analysts did the same review and found nothing wrong with the car. Now that's service!

Excellent!!! I came here for a pedicure and the experience was very relaxing and very pleasant. The store is clean and professional. The woman at the counter was friendly. The woman who did my pedicure was too. She wasn't too chatty and not at all gossipy as some salons tend to be.

Plumbing Service - Slow to get here but once here, Joe worked efficiently. He was patient with all my questions and explained the issue thoroughly so that I might be able to avoid causing the same problem in the future. Cost was very reasonable. Thanks Joe!!! :0) Furnace Service - I was a bit upset at first because it took the repair guy so long to do his work. I felt that the two hour service charge was extreme. I also had trouble when I called the company and spoke to the rep. However, the company owner called me the next day to discuss my concerns in detail. Everything has been explained and worked out to my satisfaction. If the owner had not called me back, I probably would not be using this company again. But because they called back and were willing to try to make things right and earn my satisfaction, I will be using them again. Furnace Service AGAIN!!! - I used them again in February 2012 and they replaced the thermocouple on our furnace. This makes the third time they've been out for the furnace. It is October 2012 now and starting to get a little chilly so we went to turn on the heat only to find that it is not igniting. It the thermocouple out yet again? To have them come check it out to see if it is the thermocouple, they will charge us another $120 for labor. Not happy.

The owner is awesome and the facility is great. It has everything you need to get your dog clean. Stairs so your dog can get in the tub, shampoo, conditioner, towels, blow driers, dog brushes, etc.

We got married here a couple of years ago and it was fantastic. We're coming up on our two-year anniversary and plan on staying here again. The owners are super nice and the rooms are gorgeous.
