I just received exciting news! A picture of our boxer/coonhound, Ellie, won Dog Owners UK first “Dog of the Week” photo contest. What fun! She looks like she’s grinning for ear to ear.
I’ve been focused on fungi while writing my fourth mysterybecause it has a mushroom festival in it. My husband found THIS next to our driveway! I’ve been finding many different varieties in our yard, but this one is the most interesting so far. I find the different shapes they come in amazing.
This is an amazing example of how devoted dogs can be. A golden retriever’s owner slipped and fell in the snow and couldn’t get up. One article I read said the dog stayed next to him in the freezing cold for twenty hours keeping him warm before they were found by a neighbor.
I had a wonderful time at Pet Food Express today. I took my young dog there for socializing, and they were having a puppy adoption event going on. There were lots of wide grins and people cuddling puppies. A lot of dogs were adopted today which is always great news!
Here’s a picture of our rescue dog, Ellie, running full tilt and grinning with happiness. She’s a boxer/coonhound mix and a real sweetheart!
Here’s one of my favorite sayings.
The Mendocino Volunteer Fire Department added to the holiday lights. I’ve been there when the siren starts to call people in. It’s REALLY loud. You see people come running out of homes and sprinting across fields. It’s one of the things that’s very different about living in a small, isolated community. I’m going to put it in one of my books.
There were lots of colorful holiday lights in Mendocino last weekend. Here are a couple of photos I wanted to share.
