Hi! Catherine Mann here, welcoming you to my first blog with the Casablanca authors! My debut book with Casablanca - a military romantic suspense entitled COVER ME - will be out next July, but I look forward to visiting with you in the meantime while I count down the days.
Now, on to this month's theme of abundance...
When I think of the word abundant, I envision the exuberant love shared without hesitation by precious puppies. I believe we could learn so much from our canine pals about opening our hearts.
Those who know me likely aren’t surprised by my take on this month’s blog theme. I’m a big advocate for adopting shelter/rescue pets, and I foster for my local Humane Society.
When I foster shelter dogs, often they come to me ill or afraid or neglected. It’s my role to offer them a temporary safe haven to heal, physically and emotionally. And yet in spite of all they’ve been through, love shines so purely from their eyes as they revel in a simple belly rub or a pat on the head. They take nothing for granted, and give back their all unconditionally.
Over the years, I have fostered more than thirty puppies and special needs dogs. Some might say that’s an abundance of dogs. I say I’m the lucky recipient of an abundance of love.
To see pictures of all my shelter fosters and my own forever pets, check out my facebook photos.
Also, my website features a pet page in the “fun stuff” section with photos of author pals with their pets… (i.e. Suzanne Brockmann, Lori Foster, Cindy Gerard, Joanne Rock and more…)
Since I’m new to the Casablanca Blog, I would enjoy getting to know more about you. So I invite you to share treasured memories of your pets, past or present!
