Thanks to my friend and writing buddy, Dr. Heather Rivera, I have been nominated for the One Lovely Blog Award.

      Michele, I saw your blog description under mine on the Un-Bootcamp site. We were the late comers in getting ours posted. Or maybe it was before mine. I know it has value to all the people who love dogs as you do.
