As part of my research for writing my suspense stories, I've been attending the Washington County Sheriff's Citizens Academy. One of the best parts for me was getting to meet 19 month old Chase, a beautiful German Shepherd officer.
Here's Chase and his human partner.
I was so impressed with Chase. For such a young dog, he really was well behaved and already so well trained. And so friendly. At the end of the class we clapped for Chase and his handler. Chase got so excited and did a lap around the room.
My next K-9 book comes out next April and I can't wait to write another one. I enjoy incorporating animals into my stories.
Today is a sad day for me. My mother passed away this morning. I wasn't with her at the time but I was on the phone telling her I loved her when she took her last breath.
I am a mess at the moment. This is the only picture I have of me and my mom on my computer. This is from my wedding day nearly 28 years ago.
