Murder, Mayhem and More

As some of you know, my friends Melanie Atkins, Jenni Holbrook and I have a group blog titled, Murder, Mayhem & More. With the start of the new year, we have added author interviews and guest bloggers to our blog. About once a month, sometimes more, we will spotlight authors and industry professionals on the blog. We're very excited about this change and want to invite you to stop by and check out the blog. We already have a few interviews posted, including author Laura Benedict and crime scene expert Lee Lofland.

New Edition

I decided to take a break from cleaning house (ugh!) and introduce you to the newest addition to the family. Meet my miniature schnauzer puppy, Sasha Noel.

Since one of my dogs has been showing signs that she is nearing the end of her life, I had been checking Petfinder.com every so often, pondering whether it was best to get a new puppy before or after the other dog's passing. On Christmas day I stumbled upon Sasha's picture on Petfinder.com and was hooked. (see her petfinder picture on the right)

Sasha was listed as a four month old, and located at a rescue about an hour and a half from my house. She came from an Amish breeder who bred her for a pet store.(don't get me started) Luckily the pet store decided that with the economy, they couldn't take any more puppies, so she went into rescue.

Upon bringing her home, it immediately became obvious that this poor thing had never been outside! When placed in the yard, she completely shut down, backing against a snow bank, where she shook in fear. But no longer! Sasha soon discovered the joys of being outdoors. She LOVES snow, preferring to press her nose to the ground no matter how deep the snow, then run through the yard, the snow sliding up her face like a snow plow. Unfortunately, I haven't managed a good photo of that. In fact, I don't have any really good photos yet. Unlike her sisters, she won't sit still long enough for me to take a good one. Until then, here's another so-so shot of her.
