Some doggy smiles for this Bank Holiday Monday!
Some doggy funnies!
Some very belated Monday Funnies!
The first one is from a book/FaceBook page called Off The Leash. I highly recommend it!
This might be from the ASPCA but this is still valid here in the UK. I’m sure the RSPCA would agree with these points too.
For those of you in the Northern Hemisphere, it’s officially summer and it’s pretty darn hot!
And even though you’ve been inundated with posts to social media telling you to take precautions, we still hear stories of people who unknowingly put their beloved pets at risk.
So the good folks at the ASPCA are asking you to share this infographic far and wide. Let’s make this summer the safest ever for animals!

Yesterday, I came up with more questions than answers whilst writing but that’s a good thing as it gives me stuff to play with later. It is early enough in the novel to still be introducing sub-plots and plot points to follow-up and use later to further the drama and action.
One of the points is still up in the air but it’s about my main characters dog. I was planning on having her leave the dog behind but he’s suddenly going with her so wondering if I should actually kill the dog. What do people think? I would be grateful for some advice on that. I have no idea really what to do there.
The other is the revelation that the my main character and her crush are on bad terms at the moment because my main character wants to try a relationship despite the long distance and the chance she will never return to the mainland. Meanwhile he doesn’t want to try because he cannot stand the idea of her not being there, being a long distance boyfriend when he could never see her again. I understand the characters concerns and like the fact it has caused conflict between them but that leaves me with a problem: when do I resolve it and the finer points of how?
Still, as I said, that’s good because it gives me things to play with and use later. How is everyone else going? Do I kill the dog? Any ideas?
Needs some laughs to brighten your day?
Can anyone help out?

And a world of enhanced mobility was opened up to me. Since Nixon I have had 3 other dogs: Zeff, Drew and now Trigger my current four legged friend!
The Guide Dogs For The Blind Association receives no money from the government (see http://www.guidedogs.org.uk/supportus/fundraising/donate#.VBnqcBZUFb0) and relies wholly on donations from individuals/organisations.
As an author and beneficiary of the work of Guide Dogs I thought it would be worthwhile to give something back by producing a book of short stories and poems with all proceeds going to GDBA. I would, of course contribute a story. I am, however lacking in editorial/proof reading expertise and (if the project turns out to be viable) would be…
