Through the years, the Upper Peninsula Animal Welfare Shelter has done so many great things for the animals and people of our area, there is no way I could say no to the opportunity to help UPAWS with this fundraiser. Our house in my growing up years usually had at least one dog, often a beagle, with names like Lightning, Flash and Thunder. While I do love dogs, as an adult with a busy work schedule, I am now a certified crazy cat lady, presently owned by 15-year-old true brother and sister felines Johnny Cash and Simon. Their sister, Garfunkel, crossed the Rainbow Bridge about a year ago. UPAWS does remarkable work matching people with pets. It will be a pleasure to help them continue that mission.
