Hello, I’m Anna Nirva

Posted on December 9th, 2009 by Anna Nirva

Anna Nirva and BaileyI’d like to introduce myself to you as a writer on the Blog Squad as well as the founder of Sunbear Squad and the writer of the web site. I’m Anna Nirva, and my husband and I parent a fur family of rescues including Austin, a Walker coonhound, Duffer, a pit bull type mix, Lucinda, a Himilayan type cat, Lucky, a Percheron-Morgan cross horse, and Matilda, whom we call our “joy cat” because of her enthusiastic and affectionate ways. Finally, the queen of our fur family is Greta, a senior Great Dane whom we purchased as a puppy from an established breeder.

My passion is animal welfare as yours may be. In addition to my Sunbear Squad work, I am a long-time volunteer at our county no-kill humane society. My favorite activities are writing Petfinder bios for our shelter residents and walking the dogs on Saturdays. In the photo above, I am in the shelter with one of our dogs, Bailey (adopted now). Also I’ve been active in the statewide effort to pass puppy mill legislation which was signed into law last week. Finally, I work full-time, and my elderly parents live nearby. It gets crazy some days.

My approach to blogging will be contemplative. I will ask questions of you to find out what makes you tick—and I hope you comment often and help me build thoughtful conversation threads that get richer over time.
