Hi it’s Charly, KOIT's proud #CrazyCatLady & avid dog lover. When I’m not hanging with my five furry family members, I’m volunteering with animals, enjoying a Bay Area microbrew or touring a dog-friendly vineyard. >^..^<
(above) Me backstage with Simon Le Bon, of Duran Duran.
Cell phones didn't take very good selfies back in 2005!
Backstage pre-concert in Memphis, with Nick Rhodes & Roger Taylor.
So where's John Taylor? Standing right behind me. He grabbed my phone and
took our selfie himself, but it came out as only a blur, so I never even saved it.
10 years later kinda wishing I had. Memories!
KOIT's All-80's Memorial Day Weekend starts today at 5pm!
Coming up Memorial Weekend on KOIT, we're playing hits from the 80's
ALL weekend long, starting Friday, May 22nd at 5pm!
The disco era was still part of the early 80's, and while this is NOT a pic
of me back in the day (I'm the one on the right), I have enjoyed disco
dress-up parties within recent years. At this 2010 disco party, I even
wore clear high heels that lit up in different colors.
Yes, light-up heels! I still have them, and can't wait for an occasion
to wear them again!
I found pure, unadulterated joy from being on the recieving end of two pups up for adoption from FurEver Animal Rescue. Delilah & Zoe came to "Paws For the Cause" at Mission Rock Resort in San Francisco, sponsored by Tito's Handmade Vodka. I was grateful to enjoy canine companionship as we collected more "Pennies For Pets"!

I took this selfie shortly after we boarded, so Brooklyn was still getting used to the variety of people, sounds & smells. (LOTS for a dog to smell.)
He settled down pretty quickly and made me laugh, the way he had the courage to stare people down who were acting a little strangely. (I don't have his guts.) I was worried one would challenge me by demanding, "What's your dog looking at?!"
Going home, he was such a pro, holding his head up high and surveying the scene. I was glad, considering I had to stand and hold "the baby" (they sure get heavy fast), then transfer when they booted us all from our train due to a repair issue.
That's Muni, I'm used to it. And apparently so was he! Such an "I'm over this" attitude, I had to laugh. This doggie momma was so proud.
This beautiful creature was sunning himself right in front of me on Crissy Field Beach, and didn't want to get back into the water until my German Shepherd gently started sniffing him. Of course I called her away. He barked his seal bark at her. She barked back, and he leaped back into the water and swam off.

Video courtesy Keralites My sister sent me the pic, knowing I'd adore it. More than that... I'm putting it out to the Universe so I can manifest it. I have GOT to swim with those pigs!
Yes, I'm dreaming of a badly needed vacation. "Dream it, and it will come." Right?
(above) Shirley, Stephanie & Diane excited to give Luna a new home!
I love a good animal adoption outcome, and am even more thrilled when I had a hand in it! After profiling Luna the Chihuahua from FurEver Animal Rescue during our Wet Nose Wed segment, I also posted her on my Facebook page.
Within a few hours, posts were shared, calls were made, and emails exchanged with me in the middle, helping connect Stephanie with little Luna!

Wet Nose Wednesdays at 6:15am on 96.5 KOIT - animals featured each week here.
Friday was a great Day #1 of KOIT's Pennies For Pets at the Shoppes at Tanforan in San Bruno, with Jack Kulp and me playing with the pups up for adoption.
Hanging in the pup corral with Christine, a Muttville volunteer, and sweet dogs
to be adopted (except Brooklyn, ever present in my lap.)
I fell in love with Pumpkin, but Brooklyn the Photobomber was soo jealous.
Pennies For Pets continues on KOIT all weekend long 10am-5pm:
Sat 5/2/2015 - Animal Rescue Foundation - Walnut Creek w Brent Carey & me!
Sun 5/3/2015 - Santana Row - San Jose for Pets In Need w/ Teri King!
