If you live in or anywhere near the Jackson Oaks area of +Rockford Il PLEASE read and share this link. I have faith the owner of the dog who attacked Mika's dog (there's no way he could forget the incident) will be responsible and do the right thing if he sees this and realizes how badly his much smaller dog injured her gentle giant.

I witnessed it; Mika's dog wasn't fighting back, he was trying to subdue his attacker. If Titan had fought back, the smaller dog would probably be dead. That dog was lucky. I hope its owner is taking better precautions to prevent his dog from escaping again (he admitted it wasn't the dog's first time getting away and "interacting" with another dog)—and offers to cover some of Titan's ongoing vet bills that never would have been incurred has his dog not been running loose.

That's what a responsible person would do. 
Are you one of those dog owners who yells “don’t worry; he’s friendly!” while your dog charges toward a stranger’s dog?

She's at it again. +Lori Widmer dissects a bad job listing and offers writers a better alternative.

As much as I'd like the be the only person entering this giveaway, it's too good to not to share. I mean, just LOOK at that thick gorgeous yarn!
I’ve not done nearly as much knitting as I’d like to of late and it shows. I’m on edge and cranky. No one likes me when I’m cranky. I know without a doubt that it’s stress but right now I’m not sure I can change it. Sigh, what’s a knitter to do? I’ve kept up …

I've got to credit Spike's PR team for keeping me busy. This the first of three piece's I've written about Spike or its shows that will all run within the next week.

Look who adopted me!?!?! Meet Puppy Sadie. We met through #IllinoisAnimalRescue . They said she had over 60 adoption applications, so I'm feeling very lucky. Not only is Sadie gorgeous, she's sweet and smart, too.

No clue as to her exact age or mix, because little Sadie was found wandering alone by the Wabash County Animal Shelter on December 21. With no mother or littermates to compare her with, the rescue group thought she might be a Burnese Mountain Dog mix, but the WCAS guessed she was a 6-9 week old Beagle Mix, and she was 5.25 pounds when they found her. It's more likely she was a much younger, larger mix pup. (I ordered a doggie DNA test kit so we'll have a better idea what mix she is, which might help her vet guess her age.)

Thanks to a great foster family, Sadie is already well socialized and pretty well potty trained! It had to be hard for them to let her go, but I'm glad they did. She's a very loving little girl.

Welcome home, Sadie!

With a guest post on +Lori Widmer's blog and a mention in +Jennifer Mattern's post on the same day, I figured I'd go for the trifecta and attempt my first blog post on my new website: http://hendricksonwrites.com/index.php/2016/11/07/a-community-of-writers/
Being part of a supportive community of full-time freelance writers is a wonderful thing. Not only are the other writers kind, funny, and insightful, they aren't afraid to share their own challenges with others. A couple weeks back one of those writers, Lori Widmer—creator of Writers Worth ...

Wow. +Lori Widmer nailed it again with This Job, Not That Job. The job listing she cites here really is #NotWorthIt. Thankfully, she always includes a better option!

Can anyone spot Puppy Sadie's influence here? She helped me write this +PromaxBDA article earlier this week.
