Diane Grindol

On the Monterey Peninsula, Diane Grindol works as a professional pet caretaker. She enjoys going for walks, brushing her clients' pets, and staying with them. She enjoys photographing them as well. Throughout the years, they've found their way into various collections of haiku poems... The variety of forms, from Dogku to Catku to Haiku, is the spice of life.

This is a labor of love, a labor of love for animals, dogs, and the great diversity of dog breeds. Diane has had two rescued dogs: a Briard and an Australian Shepherd. She doesn't have enough years in her life to learn about all of the breeds that interest her, despite the fact that pet sitting has enhanced her life!
