Is when you itch 
To up and scratch.

And for post number 1500, this… this is my guardian angel. Angelo, writer of books, companion, friend, saver of my life more than once…. If you enjoy the sunrise photos I share, you get to thank him, because he makes sure i never miss a sunrise. If you enjoy the books I write, thank him, because he inspires me. Of all the gifts that God has sent my way, Angelo is the most amazing… he found me in the middle of nowhere, not once but twice. His books, especially Seven Dogs in Heaven, have inspired and comforted so many people around the world. He is not only my friend, but friend to many. Angelo. My heart dog.
