A Little Bit About Kris McHenry
I was born in Bakersfield, California and went to school there. I joined the Coast Guard in 1969 and served four years. During that time I spent a year and a half in Homer, Alaska on a buoy tender and 2 1/2 years in Monterey, California driving the motor lifeboats. After being discharged, I started learning the trade of a Glaser and subsequently owned three different glass shops in California. California is where I met my wife, Monica. Her family lived in Indiana, so we moved here. After retirement, I had the opportunity to try raw feeding and apply my love of driving. That’s when I became a driver for My Pet Carnivore.
It’s been about five years. Both my dogs and I love My Pet Carnivore. We like the short muzzle breeds of dogs so we have one boxer and one French bulldog. Our boxer’s name is Elsa and our Frenchy is Sebastian or “Bash” for short. He lives up to the bash part of his name. He’s a big dog in a little body.
Our social life is filled up with church friends and family. And we spend a lot of time renovating houses. It seems no matter what house we live in, we want to do something to change it. The renovations naturally start as small projects and end up major ones. For example, February 4th of this year a 150 foot tree fell on our house while we were home. Thankfully, we were in the basement when it hit. Talk about a major renovation! It will be a couple months before we’re able to move back in. In the near future, we plan on doing more traveling. My wife’s brother is working on his PhD in Edinburgh, Scotland. We are going to go there this summer for a month to visit and follow him around to the churches he gets assigned to. While we’re there, we plan to take a side trip to Germany, Luxembourg and some of the other smaller countries nearby.
Many of our Route customers have met Kris. We’re fortunate that he’s out there delivering for us every week! For a while (back in the day), Suzanne, Paul and Kris were the entirety of the human MPC staff.
