Karen Brown

New York, USA


I am Karen Brown from Gloversville, New York, in the foot hills of the Adirondacks.  I live in an 1830's farm house on 46 acres that are terrier heaven. My partner, Jim, and I continue to chip away at renovations and construction projects.  I will shortly have an expansive deck overlooking the stream that could support a helicopter.  That is one of the benefits of hanging out with an overachieving engineer. I am dog mom to Shamus, 10 and Rushton, 3.  I lost my beautiful, devoted Gaelan to lymphoma in September.  The hole he left is still enormous.  I have decided that I need the pitter patter of little feet, and have put a deposit down on a female Norwich terrier.  The boys will have some competition in the lap dog department.  I am attempting to write this with Rushton licking and jostling my elbow.

I have had the privilege of being part of this group for 10 years, and have also had a chance to meet several of the members over dinner and at Montgomery.  When time allows, I try to help out with the Western NY Airedale Rescue group.

I have worked as a Residential Director for the Fulton Co ARC, supporting individuals with disabilities for 37 years. I am proud to be part of a service network that is truly able to make a difference in people's lives in this world where we are inundated with so much negativity.  In my spare time I buy lots of fabric and feverishly piece quilts.  In the summer, I garden and kayak.
