To Pee or Not To Pee

This has been one of the most productive writing weeks I’ve had in a long time. I’ve spent several days this week doing nothing but write. And if you’re a writer you know the editing is NEVER done. If I’m stuck and can’t seem to get any further in whatever I’m working on at the moment, I’ll pull out some old stuff and re-work and edit the shit out of it. Today I pulled out the story that I wrote a little over a year ago after a harrowing day here at the Grey Zone (which just so happened to be the very next day following yet another harrowing day, the one that yielded my Poop Madness story). Just thought I’d share with you the new edited version of TO PEE OR NOT TO PEE. 

Welcome to Angels Bark!

Well, it’s about time I finally started this blog. I’ve only been thinking about it for a few years now. I’m fairly technically-challenged so that may have been the initial deterrent. But mostly, I’m just a serious procrastinator and without a deadline to push me into action, thoughts stay thoughts and projects, once started with enthusiasm and fervor, eventually languish into a black hole of unfinished and incomplete ventures. Today I decided that my blog was not to become one of those. So, here I am.

Angels Bark is a blog about dogs and life.                                                                             My vision right now is to feature a main Stories & Posts page, where I’ll post stories that I’ve written, some sad and poignant, some funny, but all true (unless otherwise noted). Plus other tidbits to be determined. A second page, Articles, will feature some of my short pieces, primarily commentary centering on things I discover along the way in my journey to becoming an Animal Chaplain (full credentials and ordination expected in 2015). But I do have a way of going off tangent so expect the unexpected.  And a third page will be, for the most part, a resources page covering Dog Health and Behavior News. Hopefully blog visitors will find something of value in the information shared.

You can find out more about me, not ironically, in the About Me section.                               As for what “Angels Bark” is?                                                                                                   Well, (a) it’s the title of the book I hope to publish one of these days,                                     and (b) it’s what I believe.                                                                                           Because through everything I’ve experienced with dogs over the years,                         there is no doubt in my mind that they are indeed Earth’s very special Angels,                 and these angels do in fact bark…
