Mailbag Monday: Of Christmas and Courage
The cute Christmas cards just keep rolling in!
The most recent batch of deliveries finally included a festive dog.
This is Sophie, a golden retriever in Nebraska.
As you can see, although she has a little gray on the face, she is not too old to hang out with Santa Claus.
Sophie belongs to the parents of one of my dearest friends from high school.
Another cool thing that arrived at my doorstep in the past few days was this book:
I am super excited for the extra time off work I am getting for the holidays this year. I will use some of it to pore over author Lisa Rogak’s accounts of the work that dogs do all over the world – including fighting crime, fighting fire, saving people and offering medical assistance and therapy to people in need.
On my initial flip-through, I landed on a page about one of the coolest things dogs can be taught to do – sniff out whales on the open ocean with the organization Conservation Canines!
Look out for my full review of Dogs of Courage sometime soon!
What kind of mail did you receive last week? What kind did you send?
