Bob Tyra

After 27 years at the Los Angeles County Office of Education, Bob retired from a Project Director position in 2011 where he provided technical assistance to counselors in 81 school districts. He retired from his Adjunct Professor position in the California State University system in 2018 after 25 years of service.

Bruce is an 8-year old Great Dane and Border Collie mix and is our official C2C dog. Since coming into our family from a rescue facility 5 years ago, we are proud to report that he has earned two SPCA “Canine College” certificates in agility. He will do anything for cheese and he is a good dog, yes he is.
