About the Author ()

Jill is mom to three retrievers. Krypto (a black lab mix) is very laid back & only gets excited when it’s time to eat. Ripley (a pure bred golden retriever) is the typical happy, always “ready to play” golden. Boomer (a golden retriever/English setter) is the baby of the group. He loves to go for rides in the car and follows Jill from room to room around the house.
