Guardian--New Release this Month

As many of you know I love dogs. I have two of my own and if I had more space I'd have many more. But I live in the suburbs with a small yard so I can only have the two. Here are my sweeties
Writing about dogs is so much fun. Especially learning about the different breeds. Here's a cool graphic that tells some of the highlights of why Labs are great for water search and rescue!

Guardian is book 1 in the Classified K-9 series. Here's all the covers to the six books. Aren't they fabulous!?

Snow Fun at the Zoo

This week we had a snow event. I've been stuck in my house for days because we had a foot of snow. Now I know that doesn't seem like much to some of you out there but for us this is unusual. 
The Oregon Zoo closed because of the wintery conditions but reopens today. 

Here's a fun video with some of the animals enjoying our lovely snow!
