Is Dr. Clarke married?
Yes. She is married. She also has two children – the four legged kind. Prairie Rose Too, her Lhasa Apso baby, is her constant and faithful companion and Rez Perez, a stray Maine Coon cat rescued in below-zero weather on the Wind River Indian Reservation in Wyoming. Rez has never set foot outside the house since she was brought home – 12 years ago. Sometimes she will stick her head outside the door and look around and then quickly retreat to inside. The closest she gets to nature is sitting on the window sill and watching the world go by. Rez and Prairie are good companions and play together.
