I'm in Print @ City Dog Magazine!

I am in print this month!
My article is in
The article is about the Therapeutic Play Program at Seattle Children's Hospital, focusing on animal-assisted therapy (people and dogs working together). My hope is that the article will raise awareness and support for the program.
The two wonderful women I interviewed were great resources, full of interesting information, passion, inspiring stories and great quotes. We met some of the dogs ("pet partners") when Katie was a patient, so it was rewarding to learn more about the program, and the people & pets who volunteer their time to help provide this important therapy. Pictured here is Christi Dudzik of Healing Paws, and one of her pet partners, Teddy Bear.

From the City Dog Magazine website:
"In addition to independent pet stores and newsstands, CityDog is sold at Barnes & Noble, Borders, B. Dalton, Hastings and other major bookstores throughout Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and northern California."
If you don't live near one of these outlets, you can go the website (the link is above) and order a subscription or an issue.

Thank you, Smileygirl, for being supportive of the idea of this article!

Yay for you! It's one thing to be online; it is a completely other thing to be on actual paper.

This looks like such a great program.

"and so it began our own Brenda Starr ( do you even know who she is?) career as a reporter"

I am delighted, not surprised I must add because I believe it was a matter of time and of someone smart enough to realize how good you are.
Another reason to drink champagne next Saturday :)

Whoo-hoo! Can't wait for your book! We just got back today so I've been catching up ~ Hawaii's internet connection is slow (at least where we were) ~ but, that's probably a good thing since one shouldn't spend much time online in paradise! xo L.

So cool! I've been told by several patients that they love the time with the dogs "because they don't judge.". Congratulations on the article.
