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) 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!

If you're surprised to hear there's a bonafide castle overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Pacifica, you're not alone. It's a secret that doesn't have to be!
I was lucky enough to slip inside the mysterious & fascinating Sam's Castle.

Ghosts join us in the bedroom. LOL. Chandelier w/ painted medallion above us.
Exquisite organ. Note the fabric-covered pedals that the match stool.
Renovated bathroom w/ hand-cut tile shipped in full sheets from Italy.
Doing my best to make a guest smile in the Party Room. (I think it's working.)

Brooklyn loved his 3rd year judging SF Dogfest in Duboce Park, San Francisco on Sat, April 18, to benefit McKinley Elementary & celebrate the wonder of DOGS!
Emcee Daniel Handler (Lemony Snicket) is deliciously witty & sarcastic.
