When Ray is asleep, it is easy to reflect back on his time with us. Of course when he is asleep, it invariably means we also have to figure out which foot belongs to which leg, and how he got himself into that position! Continue reading
If you are a dog lover, or have a friend or two who are dog lovers, then treat yourself, and them, to my book about Ray!
Unlike so many books about dogs, not only is he still alive at the end … but he is still alive at the time of writing this Post!
Ray is now “Mr. Sociable” and will invite attention from most people he meets, but he was not always like that. Whatever happened in his early years made him fearful of people and other dogs, and his way of dealing with it was to lunge and bark to make “the problem” go away. He also displayed startle response (as I found out the hard way), and his first medical examination determined a Stage 2 Heart-Worm condition. He jumped off a viewing platform which overlooked a river around 100ft below us and …..! Let me just say that he was a challenging addition to our home.
All the details, and how they were addressed, are in the book. Ray had to wear a muzzle for quite a while when out but it had little to do with him biting! The reasoning (so logical when someone explains it to you) is in the book!
All profits from book sales will go to the Oakville & Milton Humane Society, being the organization that rescued him, and put much time and effort into making him a potential adoption candidate.
There are many book reviews on amazon.com, and the book is available from any on-line book retailers in eBook, paperback and hard cover formats.
So … If you are a dog lover, or have a friend or two who are dog lovers, then treat yourself, and them, to my book about Ray!

I was sorting through a box of old photographs in my “get the pics in albums” project, and came across this handwritten poem in my writing. While it is very good, I know that I did not create it so must have copied it from somewhere. Continue reading
It’s that time of year when … Continue reading
