My name is Barb Santini and I’m the lucky person who gets to play with your dog
while you go and have a good time yourself (okay, okay… or while you’re away on
business – because sometimes we have to work, too.) I have over 35 years of
experience in the animal and health care fields. My experience started at
Columbus State College in the veterinary technician program and ended in the
microbiology department at East Liverpool City Hospital. I have gone from
working at Winona Veterinary Hospital in Winona, Ohio with Dr. Bruce Marhefka
to working with “people germs” in the laboratory at our local hospital.
I’ve had dogs – and a miscellany of other animals - in my life for as long as I
can remember. As I say, dogs are some of the best people I know! J I currently have six
Golden Retrievers: Delaney, Otis, Bailey, Carli, Buddy, and little Miss
Emmylou. (I also have one crazy parrot named Alex.) One of my most rewarding
‘dog-tales’ is taking my oldest girl, Delaney, to get certified as a therapy
dog. Together, we visited many nursing homes, hospitals, and even local
elementary schools (where kids who had difficulty reading could hone their
skills while reading to some wonderful furry friends!) Delaney and I spent a
total of eight years in this service group – known as “Paw Pals” – ‘retiring’
only when Delaney aged to the point of being better suited for days filled with
lots of naps and treats rather than being on the go. Now, she’s the boss here
at Muddy Paws and oversees all operations with a kind heart and a gentle soul –
and always one eye on the treat bin!
Delaney is my ‘Right-Hand Girl’, and we are privileged to welcome so many dog
friends into our lives, our kennel, and our hearts.
