In Cayla's former life, she worked in Venture Capital and as a CFO, then left it all behind to pursue her passions for travel, yoga and Border Collies (not always in that order). Her husband, who previously led a relatively uncomplicated dog-less life, has been unwittingly lured into world of Border Collie fanaticism.
Cayla has been involved with dogs and humane associations her entire life, working at shelters in Philadelphia, Indiana, California, Montreal, Chicago, and Italy. She is also active in the campaign against puppy mills. (For more info visit www.nopuppymills.com.)
"My first Border Collie, Trixie, was adopted from the Chicago Pound in 1997 -- I didn't even know what a Border Collie was. Trixie just seemed like an awfully cute black and white dog. The resulting baptism-by-fire led to a love of the breed, a career change, two more adopted BC's, and the formation of GLBCR. Without the guidance, however, of Jennifer Boznos of Call of The Wild, it would have been a much more frustrating experience for the dogs, who have been very patient with me on my path to understand this wonderful quirky breed."
