Hey there! I'm Cecile. Growing up I watched my older sisters bring home strays and care for them. I learned from them how to tell if a dog is happy, scared, or in pain. I learned how to calm an anxious dog with a soft voice and that dogs that are more vocal, change their posture, or are not so interested in food, may be in pain or sick. I also learned how much fun it is to play with a dog. I am enrolled in the Veterinary Assistant Program at Middlesex Community College to learn more about the animals I love. I will receive my certificate February 14, 2018.

Dog Walking in Durham

A little more than 7,000 people call the town of Durham in Middlesex County, Connecticut their home. It was once a farming village that was prosperous thanks to the town's position on the Coginchaug River, and today, it's a vibrant and dynamic place to live. Each year, Durham hosts the Durham Fair, which is the biggest agricultural fair in all of New England. There are several historic places to visit in Durham, including the Town Center, which is on the National Register of Historic Places. Dog owners who love spending time outdoors will enjoy the variety of dog-friendly recreational activities nearby, including parks and trails.

In addition to outdoor recreation, there are also more low-key dog-friendly options in Durham. You and your pet can visit Perk on Main, a casual eatery that serves organic coffee and local food. Perk on Main has an outdoor deck that overlooks the picturesque countryside, and your dog is welcome to join you out there. Perk on Main specializes in delicious crepes, but they also serve burritos, omelets, and breakfast sandwiches. Once your appetite is satisfied, you and Butch can make the short drive to a nearby off-leash park or visit a dog-friendly trail for a long walk.
