I’ve never been shy to share news with readers, so I’m not going to start now. My older dog, Ryan and I have something in common. Besides my catering to his every whim. We both have a fatty tumor. Actually, he has a bunch of them and has had them for years, but his don’t […]

I promised I’d keep everyone updated on my dog show adventures. Buzz and I are home from Flint and Cleveland with four green ribbons. Why is that important? Because we need 10 green (qualifying) ribbons to attain a Rally Master title. The white ones are fourth-place ribbons.  We got scores of 90, 85, 96 and […]

This week, The Bridge Magazine did a wonderful story about my friend, Tran Longmoore, and his terrific online publication The Saline Post, which just a few months ago was poised to stop publishing. Why? Because despite all the hours he worked seven days a week to publish it, he wasn’t making enough money to pay […]
