Hi there! I’m Mary, creator of The Sage Hound. Early riser, every single day of the week. By 4 a.m., I’ve got a black coffee in hand ready to start my day. Which means a quick walk with the dogs before breakfast and then a hike to get the day rolling.
I love to laugh and do so often (it really clears my whole body of any bad feelings). I’m quick, cool and calm in a crisis, and a little hyper-observant to my surroundings. This comes in handy while hiking. I’m the first to point out wildlife, down to the tiniest bug.
Once I discovered the healing and restorative power of essential oils, for both humans and animals, I became addicted – in the best way! Since then, I’ve spent a good bit of my free time researching cruelty-free products, natural health remedies and since my heart dog Ace has gotten sick, I have been looking into holistic health products and modalities for dogs. I’ve also been researching how to feed my dogs whole natural food and have become much more familiar with chicken livers, kidneys and beef hearts much to my dogs’ delight!
We have completed the move to our farm in Central Oregon. Working on the chicken coop design for our new chickens’ arrival in Spring 2018 and planning the barn for our goats.
The dogs absolutely love our new home and I can’t wait to share our progress.
I have high hopes that my current “brown thumb” will turn “green”! Above all else, I’m happiest when I’m hiking or camping with my dogs. That’s why I brought The Sage Hound to life. So I can share the love of that this-is-the-good-life kind of feeling that comes along with connecting to nature, balancing our bodies and clearing our minds. It really feels like something I was born to do.
