This blog is a tribute to Belle, and all the dogs who have come before and after. They are my friends, my companions, my teachers and my students. They bring me both joy and heartache, laughter and tears. There is nothing as sweet as the smell of puppy breathe, and nothing as sad as the final goodbye.

Home Cooking For Your Dog (and cat)

I had the pleasure of attending a lecture by author Christine Filardi last night.

In a holy place,
So is the beauty,
Of an agd face."
