For all you horse lovers out there, I just learned that Illinois will have a new rescue facility for abandoned and abused horses. They don't have a permanent location yet. You can go to their webite to see what they're up to.


For all you dog lovers out there. The American Kennel club (AKC) is making changes in its obedience trial rules. According the Paw Power Blues Dog Club (I belong to this great club in Lowell, Indiana) :

Here are the highlights:

I. In UTILITY classes, all dogs will use the same number gloves. (there are three. The handler signals the dog to take the glove the judge requests) Now, all contestants will use the same glove.

2. In STAND FOR EXAM Judges will not handle the dog's tail. If I were a dog, I wouldn't want my tail handled either. LOL

3. Dog can earn their titles under two rather than three judges. (that makes it easier if you're at a weekend show and the club uses the same judgeds for each show.

If you want to learn mre, check the AKC website. PS It might be http:// rather than https as it states above.



NEWS: My book "Waterlilies Over My Grave" will be out on November 15th. In conjunction with Authorsden we'll be holding a contest that will go through November 15th when the book comes out. I'll be posting an excerpt and will ask questions pertaining to that excerpt. Look for it in the next few days. (or maybe even today)

Authors den is: (If that doesn't work, try But, I think it's the first one.
