It's, It's a Dog Named Blitz


My first Yellow Dog was a remarkable dog named Blitz. While she was only with me for a very short time, her antics, the stories she subsequently created, and the joy (and, ultimately, the heartbreak) she brought have stuck with me.

Over the past few years, I have been thinking about all the stories I have of her, and had been toying with the idea of cobbling them together into a book. Now, before becoming critical of me, note that there are ways to self-publish in very small runs for friends and family. Hence, I have no delusions of grandeur on my writing and my long term prospects. I know where I stand.

I was further buttressed in my desire to write Blitz's story once a read Marley and Me. Frankly, I felt I had more compelling story to tell, plus Marley didn't even hunt. Hello.

Thus, I'm going to try and tell my stories via this blog. I intend on doing it a section at a time - consider it a blog version of an old radio serial if you will. I'll still post the usual blog stuff, but will intersperse the Blitz content with it. The format may not work well, but I'll try it and see.

Toward that end, I'd really appreciate your candid feedback. Feel free to leave comments, and also use the poll that I have set up on the right. I trust and appreciate the readership I have - be it long time friends and family, or folks that just happened to find this site via Google or some other random method.

Please feel free to include any thoughts you may have. Know, however, that kiddos might be reading this, so please keep the adult language to yourself. I know, for me to ask that language is clean is a stretch...
