Dixie Praytor

Dixie belongs to Mike and Cheryl.  She is daddy's dog.  She will follow Mike around everywhere if she is allowed to.  She is a Labrador Retriever with English bloodlines which is why she is smaller in size.  She loves the lake, chasing deer at home, going to Home Depot and Lowes or just riding in the truck.

Travis served 4 years above the USS Buffalo fast attack submarine in the US Navy.   After an Honorable Discharge, Travis worked in construction; framing, masonry and surveying, before entering the mold remediation industry in 2001.   I developed a passion for helping people restore their homes and businesses and enjoy the different challenges this field provides on a daily basis over the years.
