Introduction
I'm the founder of Grouchy Puppy®  I believe in socially responsible blogging, and sharing inspirational, educational and fun stories that demonstrate the human-animal bond. 

As a Pets Are Wonderful Support PAWS volunteer and current board member, I believe strongly in the value of keeping those most vulnerable in our community together with their pets. As Temple Grandin rightly says, animals make us human.

I'm a proud California native and long-time San Franciscan.
