I am sixty-five, a wife, mother, step-mother and grandmother of three. I retired from my thirty-seven year career as a cello teacher in 2014. I share my home with my retired university professor husband and three dogs: Chiwee, a eight year old chihuahua, Maggie a 5 1/2 year old, 110 pound mastiff (or something) cross and Billy, our new boy aged 5, 90 pounds, who we adopted in June 2013. Billy is probably a boxer, crossed with something calm………The big dogs were rescues from a kill shelter in Ohio, adopted through Lotsadogs rescue, in Whitby ON. Now they are our spoiled sweethearts. Chiwee we bought from a breeder and is as sweet a chi as you want to meet. We live in Canada, in a town on one of the Great Lakes.
