I recently found out that my story Crazy for Daisy has been selected to appear in Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Dog Did What? It was chosen from among thousands of entries.

I'm thrilled about this news and couldn't wait to share it.  I have long wanted to have a story of mine published in Chicken Soup for the Soul.  If my naughtiest dog ever, Daisy, couldn't get me into a book with this title, nothing else could. I like to think that somewhere beyond Rainbow Bridge, Daisy is raising her paw in a High Four.

Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Dog Did What? is scheduled to be available in bookstores August 19, 2014.

ALERT!  There's more trouble in the pet food industry. Hills Science Diet has recalled specific lots of its pet food for toy breeds that is tainted with salmonella.  It was distributed to veterinary clinics and pet stores between April 24 and May 13, 2014 in California, Hawaii and Nevada.  Check the link for further information and symptoms to look for in your pet if you've been feeding it Hills brand dog food.  This is getting worrisome.  If you can't even trust the pricey food your vet carries, what can you trust?
