Hi it’s Charly, welcome to my page. When I’m not hanging with my five furry family members, I’m volunteering with animals, enjoying a Bay Area microbrew or vineyard, and I’m here, interacting with you!

Had a rough day, just needed the calming energy & peaceful beauty of Grace Cathedral on Nob Hill in San Francisco.
Always a respite from the craziness & insanity of life.

You've always got an "Anti Bad-Vibe-Shield" within. Just imagine this (or your own mental design), and throw LOVE at whatever is bugging you.
By sending loving thoughts & energy to a difficult situation or person, it makes it go away!... or at least become easier to deal with. heart

Kashi (above) says, "Conserve water, don't turn on the faucet."

Shana dares me to turn the water on. (I won't.)

Marco just fits!

BluCali & Kashi both find ways to stay cool.

Kashi has no intention of moving. (Nor should he.)

Yup, this is my house. The only thing missing is the corner of small cat food sample bags, just in case I run out of the food they like (for this minute).
And yes, cats are sooo worth it.

How exciting to meet such an amazing lady at the recent Strutt Your Mutt SF for Best Friends Animal Society (Treasure Island, Aug 23, 2014). The internationally-renowned Animal Communicator Dr. Laurie Moore donated her time, energy & talents to connect with our companion animals.
Dr. Laurie Moore, Ph.D, LMFT, CHT, has appeared on KRON, NBC, CNN, Fox News, O'Reilly Factor, Ricki Lake, The John Walsh Show, and hundreds of other television & radio shows, written dozens of books, and is no stranger to skepticism. While her demeanor instantly puts you at ease, the real test is the animal's reaction.
My rescue mutt, Brooklyn, is hesitant to get close to anyone and takes his time to sniff a person out. With Dr. Laurie, he sized her up for 2 seconds, then went in for a big slurp across her face. I've NEVER seen Brooklyn take to anyone that quickly, EVER. Good start!
And it only got better. Without telling her my own situation, Dr. Laurie tuned in to each of my five animals individually, and heard about my deep sadness, grief, and coping mechanisms. So I shared that my fiance had died suddenly, and I was busting my you-know-what to take care of them, both physically and emotionally. She said they KNOW they're very, very loved... they are more worried about me. I can stop stressing over their grief, and in turn they won't have to worry as much about my welfare. They also want me to take better care of myself, and get some medical situations taken care of. Once again, dead on. (Bad me, I've been really putting off a necessary medical procedure.)
I learned so much more about each of them, but even more about me, in only the short time we talked. Will I go back to her for more interspecies interaction? DEFINITELY.
~~ [VIDEO] Check out this interview explaining what she does & how she does it,
with Henry Tenenbaum on KRON 4 News. ~~

Heartwarming to see Ben the dog's passion to go swimming in Ireland's Tory Island Harbor with his dolphin, Doogie. They meet up almost every day & can swim together for hours.
If other species can get along so well, what happened to humans? {{sigh}}

Cats are amazing creatures who have earned the right to look at us with disdain, when we don't appreciate the furry fiber they add to our meals or leave as designs on our clothes.
More important is the power of the purr - to heal our minds, spirits & BODIES!

Faces too precious for words.
These seeing eye dogs-in-training from The Seeing Eye, Inc. in Morristown, NJ, accompanied their students to a baseball game and made hearts flutter.

Another little guy to pull your heartstrings, this seeing eye pup is from Guide Dogs for the Blind in San Rafael, CA.

Enjoy these pics of Fleet Week SF 2012 by San Francisco photographer David Yu, so breathtaking you almost need earplugs. (You'll want them for the real thing. Just don't bring your dog. WAY too loud for sensitive ears!)

Thank you David Yu, for your incredible perspective and talent.
Looking forward to seeing #fleetweeksf 2014 through your lens!

When Igor's family left for a long trip, they didn't want him feeling homesick at the lonely, boring kennel near his home in Norway. So they redecorated it with his favorite couch, pictures and wall paint. And the best part, he made a new friend for life, as Helga the St. Bernard swung by every day to visit!

Where ever this place is, it would take (almost) all of my fun away!

However, I LOVE this one....

These also have their place....

And of course, gotta love this one!...

... the more they stay the same.
San Francisco Chronicle article from July 20, 1965, re-printed in this Sunday's paper (August 30, 2014) in the "CHRONICLE CLASSIC" column.

Other people had garages like mine back then? Phew! Nice to know I'm not alone,... in any decade.
