An avid gourmet baker, Dr. Sigmund uses the hobby as a creative outlet and for stress relief. He also enjoys running outdoors and catching up on the latest television shows with friends. His furry companions include four dogs. Joe, a border collie/cattle dog mix, loves herding chickens. Jazzy, an older pug, conquered cancer and is now a cute tripod. Arthur, also a pug, has not met a food he cannot inhale in two seconds. And, Tucker, an older shih-tzu has the spirit of a much younger dog and the stubbornness of a mule.
