Dogs have always been a big part of my life and they always will be. I suppose that’s why I wrote Another Place Another Time. I’ve just started publishing it in serialized form – you can find that here – and if you like, you can have each new chapter sent directly to your Kindle – here’s the subscription information –
Here’s an excerpt from the episode I posted this morning:
We drove for a half minute or so and he added, “Leonard, right now we have over a half million troops in Vietnam. Less than two hundred of them are Scout Dog Handlers. That’s an exclusive group. Everyone in it earned the right to be there, and they will all tell you that it is more than worth the effort. If you don’t wash out in Airborne or Ranger training, in less than six months you’ll come back here, to the kennel, where you’ll meet your partner…”
“Your dog will be your partner. You’ll train together, and you’ll go to Vietnam together. What do you think?”
“I want to do it, Sir. Whatever it takes, I want to do it.”
“Are you sure about that, Leonard?”
“Yes, Sir, without a doubt.”
Another Place Another
Time is the story of two dogs, Whispers and Traveler, and all the people whose lives they touched.
When I think of the story I think of Peck, my first dog, and Ricky, and Buddy, and Jerry, and Fred, and Peanut, and of course, the great one, Tigger, who shows up in two of my books (Southern Investigation and soon to be published, Southern Investigation – Tucson) as Mojo.
If your life includes a dog(s) and you’d like to share a dog story – leave a comment. A good dog story is always welcome.
