About this blog

Welcome to AMQ, the blog of a 17 year old dog-loving introverted Catholic Homeschool student and pianist who dreams of someday becoming a dog trainer and a farmer. I mostly post about my animals, music I like, and quotes I find memorable, but you will also find some reviews and some random thoughts/opinions about things. I encourage you to start long and civil discussions free of nastiness in the comment section and to use the Oxford Comma, for heaven’s sake. Hope you enjoy my blog.


An accurate description of myself. 

My animal friends/housemates


Molly is a 9 year old German Shorthaired Pointer, and more importantly, one of my best friends. She is somewhat serious and anxious by nature, and prefers the company of people, (but not too many,) to other dogs, so I always say she is an introvert like me. However, she definitely has a silly side. She is an intelligent, athletic dog who enjoys going for walks, hunting mice and moles, barking at the UPS truck, (we’re still working on that,) and above all, being with her people.


Looking fabulous as always.


Brèagha (pronounced breeya,) is my new Border Collie puppy. Her name is Scottish for “beautiful” or “lovely,” and I may be biased, but I think she is both of those things. I am in love with this little sprout, and I look forward to the deepening and maturing of our relationship as she grows up and we discover more about each other.

The cats

My Mom’s 8 cats don’t exactly fall into the category of “friends,” but they are, unfortunately, my housemates. Sorry cat lovers, but I am just not a cat person. I find them incredibly annoying. I have nothing against cat people, and I have nothing against their cats, (as long as I don’t have to live with them,) but cats are just not for me. Don’t let that make you feel unwelcome here if you love cats though; I welcome anyone to my blog as long as they are not rude or mean.


I confess, I am not completely immune to their cuteness… but I’d rather they live outside.

The outside animals

We raise chickens for eggs and rabbits for meat, with a few turkeys for fun.
