It’s Tuesday so that means a post for Another Good Dog. I’ve been writing this blog for over five years. That’s a lot of posts! Today I am in Virginia at our cabin, Chateau Frankie, celebrating twenty-five years being married to Nicholas.
We are hiking and exploring our future hometown and probably eating and drinking too much. Fanny is with us, so maybe today we have driven over to the other side of the Massanutten mountains to the town of Woodstock where there is an excellent dog park that even has a few pieces of agility equipment (in addition to an excellent brew pub!). Or maybe we rented canoes and are floating up the south fork of the Shenandoah River.
Or maybe we are up on Skyline drive trying out a new trail or finally tackling Old Rag.
Who knows? What I do know is that I’m not writing a blog post.
So, instead, I thought I’d encourage you to check out my new Medium site, where I’ve begun posting articles previously published on Who Will Let the Dogs Out, mostly because the stories are so important, and partly because it just kills me that so few people have read them.
Another option would be to scroll down and find the archives on the righthand side of this blog and read some of those older posts from when this all began with a little beagle named Galina.
Thanks for your continued support of not just my writing, but my mission to rescue all the dogs.
Be well and stay safe, and I’ll be back next week!
Thanks for reading!
For information on me, my writing, and books, visit CaraWrites.com where you can also find more information on my new book, One Hundred Dogs and Counting: One Woman, Ten Thousand Miles, and a Journey into the Heart of Shelters and Rescues, (Pegasus Books, July 2020). The book even has its own 100 Dogs Facebook page where I post information about signings, but also host an occasional LIVE on Tuesdays called, “Let’s Talk Rescue” where I welcome special guests and we continue the conversation started by the book.
If you’d like regular updates of all my foster dogs past and present, plus occasional dog care/training tips from OPH training, be sure to join the Facebook group, Another Good Dog.
And if you’d like to know where all these dogs come from and how you can help solve the crisis of too many unwanted dogs in our shelters, visit WhoWillLetTheDogsOut.org where you can follow the blog that shares stories or find the link to our brand new podcast!
Our family fosters through the all-breed rescue, Operation Paws for Homes, a network of foster homes in Virginia, Maryland, D.C., and south-central PA.
If you can’t get enough foster dog stories, check out my book: Another Good Dog: One Family and Fifty Foster Dogs. It’s available anywhere books are sold.
