About Me:
When I'm not working.....and I'm always working, I enjoy riding horses, we do alot of team penning, basically letting our Quarter horses do what they have been bred to do. We're not showing alot this year, gas is outrageous! Therefore we plan on trail riding alot close to home. I love being a Medic, it comes, and always has, very naturally for me. My parents were both Music Professors so I'm a bit of a family oddity. Did the FIre thing for a while until I realized it was 30 seconds of shear adrenaline rush and 6 hours of cleanup...well, that and the whole running into a burning building "thing". You guys rock, don't get me wrong, but I'll be waiting outside, thanks! I'm also really small, 5'4" and 120lbs soaking wet....sorry girls but there are some things the boys can do better than I. I'm the one crawling into the mangled cars, grain bins and sewer pipes. There are times when my size has its advantages but I could never forgive myself if one of my team members went down and I wasn't big enough to get them out. I'm a new grandma, yep, it was a suprise. Never thought it would happen at 43, but blessings can come at the most unexpected times, in the most unexpected ways. Dating a GREAT guy who is also a Paramedic....its wonderful when your with someone who truly understands the nature of what we do and how we think.

Loved the photo of that stunning grey horse. Understand not showing due to fuel prices. Used to compete in cutting and reining.
I became a grandmother at 43 also, 2 days after my birthday. Wonderful gift!
Stay safe.

On June 14th, FireSiren mentioned to contact Don Rabe with the Indiana K-9 SAR. He is now on Indianapolis Fire Department and training a water recovery dog for them. He is no longer with the IN K9 SAR. He can be contacted at IFD if you do have questions. He did write K9 SAR standards.

I hope this helps.

Hi Again Annette,
It's been, (in my opinion), perfect here in PA. Stinking hot and humid enough so that you can almost breathe. That's just how I like it, especially in gear. It's a bit soon for this, but my gear is starting to take on that late July funk. It's going to be a hot night at the washing machine Monday night! Being from the city all of my life, I was wondering if the heat takes a toll on horses, or if they're "cool" with it? Pardon the pun.
