October Letter from the Publisher

By Jenn Rich | Oct 11, 2021

Dear Dog News Readers,

I hope you are enjoying the lovely fall weather! While I still feel slightly cheated on summer, we have had some very nice days recently, and all of that rain did make my garden very happy. I really do love fall but wasn’t ready for it to come just yet. I have now accepted it and switched gears to thinking about pumpkins and apples and SOUP! I love soup season! I am also thinking we might have a nice foliage season this year due to all the rain.

We just celebrated my dad’s birthday and my sister’s birthday and had a couple of outdoor gatherings. Pepper got to visit with two of her dog cousins at one party, and then she swam at the lake at the other party and wore herself out. I’m sure we’ll get a few more swims in before it gets too cold, but I won’t likely be getting in myself.

Now that the super-hot, humid days are gone it is a great time to get out for a hike. I am also looking forward to a vacation, and I really hope the weather holds up and doesn’t rain much, so I can spend a lot of time outside!

This month is Adopt-a-shelter dog month so as always, we are featuring extra dogs in this issue. If you are thinking about adopting, this will give you many dogs to view. If you don’t wish to adopt but might be interested in fostering, I know there are several rescues in need of foster homes, and I’m sure they’d love to talk over the details of that process with you.

Have a wonderful October!

All the best,

Jenn and Pepper
