Today’s blog is a real mixed bag of furry fun and writerly advice. First off, a shout-out to a terrific magazine, THE WRITER and journalist Melissa Hart who interviewed me for a neato-torpedo July story on Writing For Pet Magazines.Melissa also is a journalism teacher University of Oregon. Recently she wrote me, “I talked about your career in class today, and for some students, the whole world just opened up. “You can write about cat poop, and someone will pay you? Cool!”
Yes, you CAN write about poop–and cats, and dogs and more–and live your pet dreams. I’m not the only one.
Everybody knows that cats–and dogs–see and detect things humans can’t, including GHOSTS! (cue scary music…) But would you want to train your dog to be a ghost hunter? More information here–provided purely for informational purposes. *s*
I wonder if dogs play with ghostly toys–according to the above, they do feel ghostly tummy rubs. But for REAL pet toys that can’t be beat, check out the Kong Company which has both dog toys and cat toys.
