Welcome to My Home on the Web
My family’s Labrador Retriever named Tawn saved my life when I was a toddler when she pulled me out of Long Island Sound. Since then, I’ve spent nearly all of my life involved with Labradors: growing up with them, training and showing them and breeding a couple of litters. Our dogs have always been family members. My husband refers to us humans as their servants. Frankly, he’s correct. I tend to their needs first thing in the morning before anything else, including making a cup of tea.
Over the years, dogs have taught me many lessons. One of our current Labradors, Ranger, appears confident that he’s taught me everything I know about obedience and rally competitions. Many others before him also have imparted other knowledge. I’d like to share some of that information with you on this website.
My blog posts and resource page aren’t just about man’s best friend. They also relate to writing and locating information. I’ll share some investigative tools, acquired as a reporter-turned-free-lancer writer and attorney, to assist those researching information for articles and books. In some of my blog posts, I’ll offer tips to save time and avoid some headaches that I experienced while ferreting out information for articles and my current narrative nonfiction book.
