    I am a Countess of Canine Care - for checking in for boarding, grooming, day camp and checking out to go home happy and healthy.  I am a Duchess of Doggie Day Camp.  My passion is for "the pack".  I began working at Pahle in July 2005.  My favorite part of my job is interaction ("lots of action" with dogs) with the dogs and their families.

    I was born in Shawano, Wisconsin and attended the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.  My favorite subjects were any one I did well in :-)

    My friends are my favorite hobbies - spending time laughing at life.

    A little about my family - we are all a "LITTLE" tall!

    My biggest accomplishment in life is a work in progress, I'm not done accomplishing life yet.

    My favorite pet was my dog Rufus who recently passed away.  The hardest part about getting a dog is losing a dog.

    If I could meet anyone living or dead, it would be Gilda Radner - In her own words "it's always something".  Her wit and sense of humor makes my heart and soul howl with laughter.  Her battle with cancer breaks my heart but inspires my soul.

    My favorite holiday is Packer Sundays - that's a holiday in Wisconsin, right? :-)  I'm "Pack Leader" here during the week and "Pack Follower" on the weekend.

Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.
