The ever-wonderful Linda and Allen Anderson of Angel Animals Network (authors of such books as “Dogs and the Women Who Love Them“) were kind enough to snap this picture of me with my table partner and fellow speaker on the End-of-Life-Issues panel, Dr. Rebecca McComas of Minnesota Pets in-home euthanasia service. They weren’t, however, kind enough to tell me my face was shiny enough to blind people from the glare of light reflecting off its surface! Is this another “benefit” of being perimenopausal???  🙂

Dr. Rebecca McComas and me.

But despite my unintentional glowing, I did have a marvelous time and was spoiled rotten by Trish Phillips, Dr. Kate Knutson and the rest of their wonderful staff at Pet Crossing Animal Hospital and Dental Clinic in Bloomington, Minn. Their FurEver Fun Day was well planned and expertly executed. They also made sure their vendors were well fed—oh, that blueberry-rhubarb crisp Dr. Kate’s mom Darlene made was to die for!—which is always a nice touch. Proceeds from the day went to support their animal-boarding services, which they offer to families (primarily women and children) who are displaced by domestic violence).

My thanks to you all!
