By Tamira Thayne

In August 2010, one woman carried a doghouse to the steps of the Pennsylvania State Capitol building and chained herself to it, seeking passage of a law protecting dogs from life at the end of a chain.

Not knowing if she’d be arrested, ignored, or ridiculed, she set aside her fears and acted on behalf of the voiceless: dogs—the most social of beings—whose needs have been overlooked by those with the power to create chain-ge for their future.

The Eclipse Dancer

By Laura Koerber

Andy thought of flying. She imagined the air under her arms, her hair lifting and floating. She felt her heartbeat separate from the faraway beat and form its own rhythm: light, quick, a dancing thrum. When she opened her eyes, her yard was dusky and her mood had lightened.

She let her gaze drift across the darkening landscape. Andy’s heart filled with exultation. She raised her arms, fanned out her fingers, and arched her feet until she was on her toes.

She was assaulted by memories. Her mother was dying, and Danny had been dead for years. Her daughter was in Minneapolis, and Alana was up in the North Woods someplace. All of her childhood friends—the fairies, Hairy, Mr. Tolliver, and Kenshi—were gone.

Is it true that childhood is never overcome? “I have changed,” she whispered.

The light exploded into a ring of fire in a black sky: total eclipse.

She gently rose up into the warm, dark air and began to dance.

peacefulplacecoverlo-drop

Wonderful Holiday Gift!

A Peaceful Place:
Paintings and Inspirations
in the Language of Labradors

by Dina Marie

Immerse yourself in the beauty of artist Dina Marie’s paintings—depictions steeped in the universal language and love of Labrador retrievers. Each of Dina’s works is unique; some bring a smile, some a touch of whimsy, yet all inspire us to reach higher, love more, and affirm our most meaningful paths to the spirit within ourselves.

Dina pairs each piece with the inspiration behind the painting, offering reflections on the deepest bonds we hold with one another and the world in which we live.

These lovingly-crafted books make an excellent gift to yourself or the Labrador aficionado in your life, and encourage a sense of peace and kindness that we often miss in our day to day lives. We hope you’ll be as touched and intrigued by Dina’s paintings and inspirations in the language of Labradors as we are.

About the Artist and Author:

Dina & Corrie2loDina Marie is a pet artist inspired by the passion she has for animals. She began drawing when she got her first dog at seven years old, and has been fascinated with animals ever since. A Peaceful Place was inspired by her Labrador retrievers, as she credits them with teaching her what it means to be loved unconditionally.

Dina painted portraits of all of her pets as a tribute to each animal. In 2010 she illustrated a children’s book, Roxy’s Forever Home.

Dina creates commissioned art pieces and pet murals for shelters; she also teaches pet painting classes. She lives a quiet life with her yellow lab, Corri, and her two cats, and enjoys spending time with her son and daughter-in-law.

About the Book

Twas the Eve before Christmas
And all through the condo
Not a soul was stirring,
But a kitten named Mambo.

He was prowling and meowing
And licking his fur.
He needed a present—
A gift from him to her.

See, Mambo was rescued
By this kind-hearted soul;
And he wanted to give back
To make his heart whole…

But what gift can a rescue kitty like Mambo give to the angel who brought him in from the cold? Find out in this delightfully-rhyming children’s tale about a prancing kitten, his friend Clancy the dog, and the animal lover who shared her all with them.ISBN-13: 978-1-946044-36-5
