About Simba's Mom

I was born and raised in California, lived in Pennsylvania for several years, and have recently moved to Delaware. I have gone from being a teacher for 20 years to a blogger and now back to teaching but still blogging. I have a great dog named Simba. Simba is a German Shorthaired Pointer. Life with Simba is an adventure every day. I have had dogs my entire life but I have learned most about dogs living with Simba. German Shorthaired Pointers really do become your best friend. They become extremely attached and that is why they say they have the Velcro phenomenon. Simba now has a sister 8 years younger and her name is Gypsy.

    I have two Pointers, Ruby (Dark), Crystal (white), both girls have pure chocolate heads. I firstly called them my little GEMS! Now they are 5 month old and I love to call them the POINTER SISTERS!!! Get It? Huh? lol Anyways, my girls also love carrots. And, they receive lots of vitamins from them…. 🙂

    Our girls love carrots. I don’t know if it is the sweet taste or the crunch that makes the treat so enjoyable but I am happy to be able to give them a treat they enjoy that is good for them.
