I'm a bit behind in my postings what with all I had going on in August and then the fire. BTW, there's another fire going up in the foothills of Loveland which is maybe 40-50 miles or so from here. Was out at the agility field yesterday morning and saw the smoke while we were on our cool down walk and thought 'that can't be good'. Despite the lack of strong winds and the immediate response of all the helicopters and slurry bombers that were working the Fourmile fire the fire still spread rapidly out of control. I think it's at 700 acres and 2 houses lost so far, lots of people evacuated. At least the area isn't as densely populated as the Fourmile Canyon area. Some pretty scary and impressive footage of the fire on the evening news.
Anyway, back in August the dogs and I were invited for a coffee date over at 'Coffee with a Canine'. When I got the email asking if I wanted to participate I thought, 'Wow, you want me to drink coffee and write about my dogs? Is it my birthday or something?' Most of the people that get invited are writers who have books out and since I'm neither I was both surprised and pleased to be invited to be included with the likes of Susannah Charleson and Merrill Markoe. I think it's somehow fitting that we were featured on Friday the 13th.
