Lia and Jeremy in Louisville Kentucky Being Silly

Meet Jeremy

After growing up on the beach in California, Jeremy met and married a girl from Louisville. They travelled the world together, but after about 800 trips to Kentucky and countless pints of Comfy Cow, she finally convinced him to move to Louisville. One Victorian home and a baby later, Jeremy’s a Louisvillian now.

Mulan the dog hammock camping

Meet Mulan

Cutest dog

A valuable member of the Let’s Go Louisville team, Mulan is both the sweetest and cutest dog in the entire universe.

After being rescued from a meat farm in South Korea, Mulan flew across the world to a shelter where she met her parents, Lia and Jeremy. It was love at first sight and they have been disgustingly obsessed with her ever since. (Yes: they are those Dog People.)

Mulan loves people (especially high schoolers), dogs (especially doodles), running and jumping, hiking, cheese, kayaking, and cuddles. She is a big fan of dog-friendly bars and restaurants and can usually be found quietly napping under a table hoping for treats.
