Her Turn

Reading Time: 2 minutes Vets and vet techs who know the dramatics of huskies have always recognized Juno's unusually calm behavior whenever they examine her.

Need a little a distraction from reality? Here is an unpolished collection the weird, the silly and the sometimes-serious at Wild Dingo. It's a blog about nothing, yet about everything.  You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll even learn something. But this is not a writing sample. It's just a place to to kick back and crack open a cool Core's 16-ouncer and lose yourself in the kooky. For my professional pieces, see my portfolio.
