What is a Canine Community Reporter
by Mandie Tarochione
I'm Mandie Tarochione, the first Canine Community Reporter. Kathy Tarochione is my Mom. L really loved my Daddy, but when he died in 2010 I really had my hands full taking care of my Mom. She just didn't know what to do. So I said, why don't you let me help you Mom and we'll work together. So that's what we did. I created a video about what my Mom did and what I was doing in the business.
I dressed up in my really cute hat, sunglasses and custom T-Shirt. I got to wear a PetCam around my neck and video record the news from my view. It was such a hoot to bring my Mom into town and interview local businesses. I really enjoyed making a lot of friends and meeting people in the Community.
Before you knew it, I was in business with my Mom reporting the news. After a while my Mom started creating inspirational pictures with Me motivating everyone!
Then she started making great pictures of Me and my friends. She calls them PETographs.
And then I was killed by our neighbor's car. Now I'm a Canine Community Reporter from Heaven so other Dogs like you need to take my place now and keep reporting the news. You Ready?
From Homeless To Hero
So now this is Me, Charlie Tarochione. I'm moving on with creating a special series with my Mom. That's what can come of you if you're a Canine Community Reporter. I wear my badge proudly and I honor what I stand for. And that's the best there ever was.
