It's always fun when animal lovers I've met through my books come to visit Oregon.
Carol Vogel, from Good Samaritan Pet Center in Denver, was in Portland over the Labor Day weekend to visit with her family. Here we are, along with her furry "niece" Moppy - aren't we a happy group?
Carol was here in December 2007. Her visit coincided with a book-signing event I was doing at a local animal shelter, and I was delighted when she stopped by.
Carol is such an upbeat, joyous person - and a true critter lover. My only regret is that she isn't a full-time Portland resident.
Come back soon, Carol!
