DAN DIMITRIU, Veterinary assistant, Veterinarian in Romania
I relocated to the golden state in the Spring of 2006 and The Bay Area quickly became home. I am the proud "dad" of a flame colored Pomeranian named Peanut. He comes from a long line of show quality Poms, and seems to know it. I double as professional photographer, and have been fortunate to shoot many special events, but no matter how many I do Peanut remains one of my favorite subjects. On weekends we tend to our bountiful vegetable garden. Just about the only place he doesn't follow me is the boat, because I wouldn't want any of the large catches mistaking my boy for bait!
MARY KAY BARNES, RVT
My name is Mary Kay and I have worked with Dr. Laurie since 1997 and have been a licensed RVT (Registered Veterinary Technician) since 1999. When I’m not at work, I’m taking care of my husband and home in Oakland and our two Labrador Retrievers. I enjoy fitness, hiking with the dogs, cooking and reading. I am competing in rally and agility with both dogs. My passion is collecting wayward Labradors. At various times, our home has served as a doggie juvenile hall, assisted living facility and hospice. I seem to specialize in canine bad behavior. I’ve loved biters, bolters, squirrel-chasers, leash-eaters and counter-surfers. My husband is a very forgiving man.
