Hello! My name is Kathleen Mueller, and I'm the Traveling Dog Lady.
I am a widowed pet-parent who writes essays about dogs, cats, pet loss, grief and bereavement, and other topics during my spare time from my "real job" as a travel executive with Passports Educational Travel. I have been in the student travel industry since 1984, and I also contribute to Passports' blog "Going Places".
I also am president of Studiowner, Inc., and an amateur photographer.
I live in Massachusetts with my twin dogs Charlie Brown and Cooper, who is a tripawd (three-legged dog), and my three cats, Cali, Tux and Newman.
I have shared my life with dozens of dogs and cats since childhood, and am proud to have cared for many senior pets as well as experiencing the grief and loss that comes along with that process.
