Brenda has lived in my neighborhood for about 40 years. Her grandparents owned the home, and she grew up with them. Now, she and her wife Daniela ("Dani") live there with their dog, Goldie. Dani and Brenda met in Germany where they were both in the military, Brenda in the US Army, and Dani in the German armed forces. They married in Hawaii, and then Brenda lived in Germany for a couple years before they moved back here to Austin. Dani is a professional dog trainer and has a pet care service, and Brenda works for the Austin convention center. Goldie is kind of nuts.
