Ultimately I had to change his name; I just couldn't say "Kaboom!" with a straight face. He now goes by "Mosby," which also fits him perfectly. I grew up on Mosby Street, named after John S. Mosby. This Confederate commander was known as the "Grey Ghost," and what do you know? My dog is grey!
Even though I thought it has only been a short time, I truly enjoy being a dog owner. I now take a walk everyday; plus Mosby always keeps me entertained! Who could resist those big brown eyes and crazy fur?
Staff Profile - Cathrine (with CWDkids since 2005)
As CWDkids’ Art Director and one-half of the Creative Department, my days are never the same. I work on the catalogs, emails, ads, and create the webpage files. The images you see on the homepage are generally created by me; and sometimes I come up with their copy too! I also help with the photography, which includes ironing and crawling on the floor to style the clothes, as well as getting kids ready at photo shoots. I have been known to do a silly dance to help get the models laughing.
My supportive family has shaped me into who I am. With three big sisters, you learn from their experiences and also how to be very flexible. My two nieces (who are pictured with me) and two nephews are a big part of my life. Although they do not live locally, I try to see them as much as possible. When my oldest sister told me I was going to be an aunt, I said, “They are going to think I’m so cool, they are going to call me AC!” Even though the name hasn’t quite caught on, they do tend to call me, “Silly Aunt Cathrine!”
- Everyday, I still can be seen eating a turkey sandwich (with cheese, lettuce, and mayo) with pretzels, but now I prefer to play Bookworm instead of Spider Solitaire.
- My name Cathrine (with no e in the middle!) comes from my maternal grandmother, and my middle name Ann is from my paternal grandmother.
- I was Salutatorian of my high school graduating class.
