dominic,

Milo say that's a great cover and he is honoured to be in the book hehe. He wants to know if he can have a review copy for his blog, Jack Russell Tales?

Suzie,
I'll send you some of it. At present I have to find a way for Ruff to save Milo from a pack of wolf's that are setting a trap with a female (Wolfs kill dogs by having a female wolf in heat lead them into a trap).

I can't vouch for his literary tastes, but here's one of mine...
"You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet." - Kafka

I remember the time this Jewish guy used to come by the farm to buy some of our goats milk. Real nice fell'a. Ruff always made sure he stayed around the farm on Saturdays, that's when the fell'a would come by. Always had good kibbles for Ruff. Somehow Ruff got the notion that all Jewish People had a pocket full of kibbles. He started hanging around the Synagogue over behind the Baptist church on Maple stree, like he was testing out his theory. This went on clear into the end of Fall, than he stopped going there. I asked him one time, kind'a casual, not want'n him to think I was prying. "You gonn'a become Jewish?" Two turns and a roll over was his way of saying he had changed his mind about doing anything like that. You see, he figured out that Jewish males are  circumcised. Ruff loves kibbles, but I can understand how he could decline such an offer.

Here's a picture of our seventh, recently adopted stray. So far we've imaginatively called her 'Seven'. Any better suggestions would be much appreciated.

Hiya,

What a beautiful dog!

I looked at her and my first thought was 'Misty' as she reminds me of the mist rolling in from the sea and over the valley here in Wales...

Here is my sweet "little" pooch.  A German Shephard.  He was about 10 months old here and about 65 pounds.
(IF the attaching works!)  ???



EDIT:
Ok.  I got it to attach, but how do you INSERT?  Left of the world, then what?
It's not paranoia if they're really after you...

To insert, the image has to be hosted somewhere else on the Internet. If you click on the Insert Image icon, it will give you two tags, img and /img, both enclosed within square brackets. You simply put the web URL of your image between these two tags, and Bob's your proverbial.

If you don't have your photo on the web already, a handy free service called Tinypic at www.tinypic.com will do it for you. Just choose browse from their menu and select the image you want on your PC. Leave the Tags field blank, and from the drop-down Resize menu choose Messageboard. Then click on Upload Now. Tinypic will upload your photo to the web and give you the code you need to insert your photo on any messageboard, with the IMG tags already supplied. I used Tinypic for my cats photo.

Having said all that, whereas usually the forum software renders image attachments as thumbnails, Fire-Fly's beautiful picture of her dog is displaying at full size. I'd love to know how she did this!

Hi Nick,

Not on purpose thats for sure. I just browsed and double clicked my photo and there it is. The first one I loaded rejected because of the size.  :D
