Who’s My Mum

This is a picture of my mum who helps me with my blog, I can’t take all the credit myself.

Her name is Annette Vivian and she’s originally from the Isle of Man, which is why she sometimes spells words in a funny way……:).  My mum has spent most of her working life in Finance in a number of places around the world and has travelled extensively.

Was I really this small?


A few years ago she settled in California to be with the love of her life, Mark (my American, cool Dad) and they married in 2010.  She was also very fortunate to become Step-Mum to Carly (15) and Cory (12) who are totally awesome!  They make up the rest of my family.  I came along in June 2010 when I was 8 weeks old to complete this family! :)

She’s now pursuing her real passion of writing and is currently helping me with my book all about Mischief!! (when she’s not helping me out on the blog!) :)

This blog was started initially to let Mum’s nephews James(14) and Bradley(10) see what I was up to as I was growing up, they live in the UK.  They needed cheering up as they’d just lost their Dad (Mum’s wonderful brother) in a traffic accident.  This accident had a devastating effect on the whole family.  It has made Mum  appreciate even more how precious life is and how important it is to be thankful, have fun and be happy.  Mum says I’ve been like a therapy Dog to her even before I qualified as an official Therapy Dog.

Here I am with Mum at one of the retirement homes we visit

It made Mum really happy when she discovered other people were getting joy from my Blog.  We’re both amazed at how many wonderful friends we’ve made through this blog.  We love to have fun and make people smile! :)

My Mum was delighted that my blog was chosen as one of 2 winners in the National PetSmart/Blogpaws Blog-to-Business contest in 2012

Mum was featured on PetPR and Coffee with a Canine
