Here's another post that has nothing to do with bees.
For the past month you’ve been putting up with those dog announcements at the bottom of my posts, and many of you, from Colorado to Michigan to Florida to Scotland (!) andlots of places in between, responded by contributing to the Walton Animal Guild. I wish all of you could have won, but there's room for only one new dog in my next book.
Now the dog raffle is over, and if you’d like to see Gracie, the winner, playing in the snow, check out this video:
Three years ago, Gracie was rescued by Carol and Ted Baum from the parking lot of a drugstore, where she had installed herself as the official outside greeter, apparently looking for just the right people to adopt. They took her to an animal shelter so her original owners might find her. When she wasn’t claimed, Carol and Ted went right back and brought her home. She was in pretty bad shape physically, but with lots of love and good vet care, Gracie rebounded to good health.
I love happy stories.
So now, Gracie will grace the pages of Violet as an Amethyst, the 6th Biscuit McKee mystery. I’m having great fun working on re-writing the dog scenes. I'll be sure to let you know when it's released (both print and ebook).
BEEattitude for Day # 357:
Blessed are those who care enough to give animals a home, for we shall repay them with love (from the dogs, cats, and horses) and with honey (from the bees!)
