Fun Facts

I've been to 22 National Parks. I hope to one day visit all 63 of them.

I've been snorkeling with whale sharks.


I was deeply touched with the care, love, compassion and dedication the hospital staff showed to Roxie. Really not only to her but to me as well. A special recognition to Dr. Maness, Dr. Sims, Curtis Davis and Sydney. The whole staff is amazing and I highly recommend Oakwell Animal Hospital! And by the way, Roxie is doing great!
