CRAVING CHOCOLATE?

Are you CRAVING CHOCOLATE? How about a HERO as YUMMY AS CHOCOLATE?

Meet Dane St. John, Sexiest Action Hero of the Year and perfect fantasy tryst. The problem: there’s a lot more to Dane than a sexy actor, and Conservation Officer Kelly Jackson falls in love. The problem worsens when Dane heads off to film his next movie and Kelly discovers she’s pregnant. She can satisfy her craving for chocolate easy enough, but how does she satisfy her CRAVING for a HERO whose idea of having a family falls into the someday category? Find out in CRAVING A HERO: St. John Sibling Series, book 3.

Watch for the date of my LAUNCH PARTY full of PRIZES in the next few days!!

TOUGH SUMMER

Been a long time since I posted. But I have a good excuse.

My husband had a life-changing surgical procedure which went into an infection and we’re still recovering. I say we because anyone who’s gone through something life-changing with a loved one knows care-givers are right in there dealing with the changes as well. But he’s finally making progress and we seem to have found a new normal/routine for ourselves. Life goes on.

And boy is life going on for me big time this month!

See my next post for the latest.

FUN DAY WITH YOUR DOG!

Ever watch those AKC (American Kennel Club) agility trials on TV and wish you and your dog could do that. But they’re so fast! And some of those obastacles seem pretty complicated for your fluffy friend! Guess what. There are other agility programs available.

Katie and I recently did a fun day of agility, this time under NADAC (North American Dog Agility Council) rules with NADAC equipment. Where UKC (United Kennel Club) goes for precision (straight on and off equipment such as the dog walk) and safety, NADAC encourages speed along with precision. But there’s another step toward safety in their equipment. They like to use hoops (think big croquet hoops or see picture on http://k9corps.club/ an Appleton, WI NADAC club) for the dogs to go through instead of jumps, which is a great boon for dogs with joint issues. They have fewer types of obstacles and the courses are set up for good flow (not so many tight turns). They also have numerous types of course. If you have a dog particularly good at tunnels, there’s a course that’s almost all tunnels.

Our fun day wasn’t a trial, so there were no ribbons. But, because it was all in fun, we did “win” a t-shirt representative of our past winter. See the picture from June 1, 2014 from just north of where I live. Our ice-capped Great Lake Superior even made the national news. Have fun…whereever you are with your loveable, four-footed companion!
