|Book 1 of the Award-winning series, The Twisted Climb|
When your dog groomer asks permission to 'get creative' with your Airedale Terrier's unruly fur, do you say yes, or no?
My daughter's family dog, Zeus, is a lovable, three-year-old gentle giant. He has lots of curly, non-shedding fur that grows like yeast in heat. So when the groomer asked permission to be creative with Zeus' 'trim,' and also that the end-result photo be included in an international dog groomers' competition, my daughter said yes.
Here's Zeus, pre-trim.
Hours and many treats later, here he is, groomer-trimmed, in glorious cowboy fashion.
And yes, the groomer received the highest international grooming honour in more than 20 years of business!
While there's no mention of a dog in my Twisted Climb trilogy, the storyline in the final book, A Bright Darkness, includes a mythical underwater monster (Mishibeshu - controls the Un-World), a spirit eagle (Thunderbird - controls the upper world), a beaver, and a muskrat. What do they have in common? Well, you'll have to check it out for yourself, and discover why A Bright Darkness has 5-Star ratings.
Stay safe everyone!
