“Being a dog owner is a great way to meet people. It's funny how these unconditionally loving, voiceless animals have the ability to bring people together. We like to say Anne's dog Luna was our matchmaker. We would have never met if it wasn't for her. But we also would have never met if Anne wasn't the risk taker that she is. She's my inspiration in so many ways. She moved from Germany to the US three years ago to take a job, leaving behind her family and friends. She came to a new country where she didn't know anyone. It's hard for me to wrap my head around that sometimes because I have a difficult time leaving the state of Texas! Anne took another risk when she decided to adopt a small terrier mix with a big personality. That little dog was a bit crazy and hard to tame so Anne decided to hire a dog trainer. That dog trainer was me and I thank god for that every day. Meeting Anne was the best thing that ever happened to me. I think it's easy to guess what happened next- we fell in love. A couple months ago, Anne took yet another risk when she quit her job to come work with me full time. She has a huge passion for dogs and we wanted to grow this business together. She's my equal, my best friend, and now my fiancé. Who says that fairy tales- or should I say "tails" can't come true?”
