Inspired by her Cavalier King Charles spaniel, Luc, Ali began in 2008, and it has since become THE go-to online information hub about local dog-friendly life in Minneapolis/St. Paul. Ali is always seeking news that's fresh and relevant for, and she connects daily with people and their pooches.

When not walking her vivacious rescue dog Maggie Moo (Luc passed away in 2010), Ali is most likely to be found at a yoga class, laughing with friends at almost any cafe with an outdoor patio (and a water dish), or - on the first Monday of each month! - introducing TCL viewers to an adoptable pup from one of the many wonderful local rescue organizations and talking about the latest happenings in the Twin Cities' dog scene.

She is house trained and cries at the door to go out. She gets along with other animals and people. She will need to be on a pill every day for her thyroid but it is very inexpensive. Aside from that she won't need any extra medical care. Her adoption fee is $225.
