Karen Emptage - Owner and Professional Pet Lover
I especially love dogs. I grew up in Miami, Florida with German Shepherds. I also recall a gerbil named Knuckles, rabbit named Charles & too many hamster names to list.
Having figured out that my passion is caring for animals, my one year opportunity working in the kennel area for Blue Cross Animal Hospital has allowed me to concentrate my "Duties" on the Northwest side of the Las Vegas Valley. I am grateful that I can & do consider Summerlin & Red Rock Country Club my "office" as I travel around visiting cats & dogs.
My husband, Bob, and I loved our two Border Collies dearly. Tanner lived a fun-filled life competing in flyball tournaments, catching the frisbee at the park and endlessly retrieving it at Lake Mead. Bone cancer took him just before he reached his 12-year-old birthday. His litter-mate and loud-mouth sister, Nikki, settled down in her later years. She enjoyed licking the grandchildren -protecting them like they were her own. She insisted she lived long enough for "toppings" to be added to her food daily, telling us all about how a little bit of cheese or even a cut-up hot dog would make her week. Sigh...Our kids....
Allow me to help you spoil your kids...because...they deserve it, don't they?
