When Cody was turned into a New York City shelter by his owners, the shelter thought he was a Wheaten Scottie. So, they sent pictures to Scottie Rescue of Greater New York. Meanwhile, the shelter kept him isolated to avoid his picking up kennel cough and other illnesses, which are common in shelters. When the rescue agreed to take him, the shelter had him vetted and brought up to date on his vaccines. They, then, delivered him to Erica, a volunteer with the rescue.

The (Cuddly) Joys of Research

When I started researching my Sassy Cat mystery series, I knew it’d be loads of fun. Mimi Lee, the main character, is a pet groomer, which meant getting up close to cats and dogs. My only negative experience was the time I got kicked out of a grooming salon—actually, the first place I visited for research. Maybe they didn’t trust that I really was writing a novel tied to pet grooming. Or perhaps it had something to do with the sassy talking cat sidekick in my book.

I have a one-eyed pug pup asleep on my lap. She’s a breeder surrender, and she squeezes between me and the keyboard. I manage to write like this.

As far as dog shows go, Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show at Madison Square Garden is top in the country, the oldest, and most prestigious. Dog handlers and owners vie for the chance to show and perhaps win or place.

Kelly got Remington (Remy, a black Berkshire boy) and Ralph (a variegated gray boy) on her birthday weekend this January.
“They were a gift to myself after losing my two boys in the fall of 2019, one being my heart rat. I was very excited to get babies again, and boys are my absolute favorite!”

Having a pet is a commitment, not something for which you beg your parents and then, two weeks later, are forced to care for. Parents should always remember that they will ultimately be caring for the animal! A decision to have a pet, therefore, needs to be a parental decision.

Duncan, a Scottie/Airedale mix, came into NY/NJ Scottie Rescue a very frightened little boy. Judged to be about a year old, he was very young acting, probably because he was not socialized. He had spent most of his short life in a crate or chained outside. He was terrified of other dogs and people and had no experience as a beloved pet.

This week we are interviewing Fresno artist Carren McDaniel. She also writes and illustrates children’s books, and makes t-shirts and masks were a portion of the sales go to help support local animal rescues (100% of the mask sales go to local rescues). I got to know her through her masks, which are wonderful! If you are looking to purchase a mask that is not only cute, but helps make a difference, I highly recommend Carren’s which can be found on her Creative Design by Carren website, along with other items.

Are you planning to go on a trip with your furry friend? Road trips are a lot of fun and one of the best ways to visit off-beat places or even regular ones at your leisure. Taking your dog along with you on the trip can double the fun. It also means that you won’t have to leave your best friend at a kennel when both of you will miss each other. Most dogs love to travel in a car. Everyone knows their love for sticking their head out of their window with their tongue rolling out.

In my Dickens & Christie cozy mystery series, Leta Parker owns a Great Pyrenees named Dickens, but not just any Pyr. Hers is a dwarf; they do exist, just not in great numbers. You can’t go out and find one at a pet store or get one from a breeder. They’re anomalies.
