Violet and Freckles
I will be walking Violet, and 11 yr old English Cocker.
Even though I work with animals every day, I seldom get to enjoy a nice walk or conversation with other dog lovers.
Since I live close to the City, my favorites are within Cook County, kind of far from Fox Valley. I work in DeKalb though, so I am anxious to learn about the great places to take my dog(s) in the far western suburbs.
My name is Tom Van Winkle and I have been working as an Executive Director for animal shelters for the past 8 years. I have a 16 year old daughter, 2 cats and 2 dogs.
