I have trouble with figuring out how to write certain books, but it's not so much of a block. (Maybe fiction writers get it more because they have to come up with a story). I always get inspiration from reading great writing, or some amazing story. I am one of those people though who prefers to 'have written' than to write.
Thanks for your kind words!

A Lid For Teddy


When Clementine came to our home, we were told that she might very well be unadoptable, that she would most-likely be our permanent foster. When you rescue and you foster, this is sometimes a possibility. If a dog is sick or old or "a biter" they just may not be going anywhere.


We were unsure of Clemmie's medical issues and the information that came with her was unclear. But after thoro

“More often than not, what animals require our protection from is not hurricanes or fires, but abuse at the hands of other people".”
Julie Klam, Love at First Bark: How Saving a Dog Can Sometimes Help You Save Yourself

“A very wise dog woman once told me that dogs find owners, not the other way around. They pick you and they choose to stay with you. In that way, they are also giving you the end of their life. The deeper the bond, the harder it is to say good-bye. I know I’d rather have any amount of time with a dog I love and suffer the mourning than not have the time at all.”
Julie Klam, You Had Me at Woof: How Dogs Taught Me the Secrets of Happiness

“Puppies are constantly inventing new ways to be bad. It's fascinating. You come into a room they've been in and see pieces of debris and try to figure out what you had that was made from wicker or what had been stuffed with fluff.”
