Eeeeps, I was all set to settle in and enjoy writing more about our relationships with pets (and answers to your great questions) and then life got in the way. You know, in that “life is what happens when you are busy making other plans” kind of way. I like to say that “today didn’t turn out to be the video tape I thought I rented.” Nothing bad about today, except the feeling that we all have on occasion that there is simply not enough time in the next two weeks to do what absolutely has to be done. I do want to talk more about society, pets and animals though… sometime soon. (And thank you for your generous comments about Calling All Pets. They are very, very appreciated.)
So I write with a bit of an apology… I’m overwhelmed with doing wonderful stuff (at least I sure hope it turns out that way, a little nervous truth be told)… finishing the proofs on my new book from Dogwise, Tales of Two Species and working on three big speeches coming up. Two are at APDT in Louisville on play (part of an entire day’s symposium on play, should be great.) and one at the Wisconsin Vet Medical Association Conference a few days later. If you are coming to either please come up and say hi, it would be great to me the faces behind the comments!
I’m up to my eyebrows in connecting cords that link video cameras, scanners, digital cameras, etc etc to my hard working Mac. More soon… I’m on my way to soon to Atlanta to do a seminar at Atlanta Pet Rescue this coming Sunday. They have a new facility, sounds like it will be fun to celebrate with them….
Meawhile, it’s GORGEOUS outside. Won’t be able to enjoy it too much, but will soak in what I can. Here’s a photo of Will, two years ago, as a pup. We’re hoping it will be in the Tales of Two Species book. Lassie is in the background, looking wise and noble.
