Portrait of Vaughan

Vaughan had a five-year-old service dog who he used for “Access and Mobility.” Vaughan had his gorgeous German Shepard Dog for four and a half years.

Vaughan was retired from the Aerospace industry where he worked as a project engineer in the specialty of mechanical engineering. He studied at College of Engineering & Applied Science at the University of Colorado Boulder.

Vaughan was originally from Wheat Ridge, Colorado, USA, but at the time of this interview, lived in Tehachapi, California, USA with his girlfriend.

Portrait of Xander

I met Xander at Pets R Us in Palmdale, CA, USA; he was going to transport a dog I rescued down to Orange County, CA, USA. This was the first time I had met Xander. I had been in rescue for well over 5 years, and I found Xander professional and wonderful as a rescuer.

Xander worked with the ASPCA in LA County, CA USA, and did transport for various rescues. He also had his own rescue,  Rescue Mafia LA. As of this post, they were working on their 501(c)3. I wished them luck on that. It’s hard to get.

Xander was single, and lived with his dogs, Ariel, an 11 year old long-haired Chihuahua, Shadow, a5 year old German Shepard and  Kicki a short haired black domestic cat, the baby of the house.

On the picture, his hat says “Dog Father” which reminded me of the joke “What did the dyslexic, atheist insomniac do?” He stayed up all night wondering if there was a  Dog.

What was Xander looking at? Maybe he was contemplating the universe, thinking how horribly people treat animals, or just annoyed at me for making him take so many poses.
