    Hey Kathy,

    I had to think of Fuzzy right away when I saw your book. We’ve got a couple “fliers” in our dog yard, but they are usually hard to catch in flight!

      Definitely hard to catch these dogs in flight, Miriam! Thanks for your submission!

      Wonderful you’ve taken up drawing, Jan. You’ll soon be illustrating your own books. 🙂

    Hi Kathy, I received copies in my Indigo/Yorkdale department and placed them face front on my Canadian endcap. It is great! I hope to have you sign a copy for me when we next see one another. Always Happy Readings, Wendy

      Wonderful, Wendy. Glad you like it. Hope our paths cross soon.

    Hi Kathy, I have sent a picture of my dog Ricky. He loved the trampoline and this is an older picture of him on it. I cannot find a good shot of him actually jumping on it right now. He loved both jumping on the trampoline and swimming. He spent every summer running and leaping/ flying into our pool (not from the trampoline – lol – although I am sure he would have liked that!) Sometimes I worried that he would actually hit the stone work on the other side of the pool because he would go so far! Ricky was an enthusiastic and happy dog and definitely would have loved your book. I am sure from my writing you can tell he is no longer here. A few weeks short of his 13th birthday, just this year, he passed. This has been difficult to write but I think my grandkids would defiantly enjoy your book. I know how much my own kids loved some of your books and they now how babies of their own! Yikes! Their favourite was Bare Naked Book & Red is Best.

    Cheers & I hope your new book flies off the shelves!

      Thank for your lovely submission, Pam. I’m sorry for the loss of your dear Ricky. Sounds like he was quite the flyer!

        Thanks Kathy! 😢

    Hi Kathy,

    Mortie sure could fly. He used to chase the seagulls in the sky, run with the greyhounds in the park. Except he’s 12 now and slowing down.

    Hope this finds you well.

    • Kathy on March 20, 2019 at 4:03 pm

      Mortie sounds like a cool dog, one who knows when it’s sensible to know what to declare his flying days over.

      I haven’t received a photo contest entry from you. If you meant to send one, be sure to use the form in the gray box. Thanks.

    Thanks for the opportunity. My son, William of Wild Willie’s Book Reviews would love this! I submitted my cool cat of a dog’s picture for him. Thanks for the opportunity!

    • Kathy on April 6, 2019 at 5:47 pm

      That dog is one cool cat and Willie sounds pretty cool too! 🙂
