From the Cat Walk to the Dog Walk

By the age of 18, I had already left my hometown of Toronto, Canada,rented an apartment in Manhattan, and landed a contract with the prestigious Ford Model agency. I had the dream life of international travel, adventure, money, and the opportunity to meet and know some very interesting people…musicians, actors, artists etc.

My passion for fashion was fueled for 20 plus years of “walking the catwalks” for some of the world’s top fashion designers.

So how did all this go to the dogs? I was the model who always had a dog nearby…my Chihuahua was often hidden in my model shoe bag backstage, or a Maltese who learned to sneak onto planes and into 5 star hotels with me…before it was fashionable, and at a time when it was also much easier to do. After moving to Dallas I found myself working for a local shelter fostering pets and adopting a few more pooches of my own. Sooncame the need for more land and a country home outside of the city.

One day I called my agent at the Kim Dawson model agency and said that I wished to stay home for 6 months to be with my dogs. She acted as though I had lost my mind andinsisted on lunch at the Crescent hotel to talk some sense into me. Istood by my requeston her giving me my 6 month hiatus. This was the moment I turned from the cat walk to the dog walk!

I spent that time dreaming of the perfect retreat to share with all my four legged friends and there buddies as well, and that dream became my new passion and my new life…Tailwaggers Country Inn.

No longer do I have to hide my pooches in a shoe bag, and 14 years later I am still playing in the country with the dogs!
