Six and a half months

Mac came to us at the age of 3-1/2 months.  He is currently 6-1/2 months.  When he arrived he liked to sit on Linda's lap, he weighed 30 lbs.  He still likes to sit on Linda's lap but weights 52 lbs.  Here is an update of our puppy.

Mac is clear of parasites

Our six month old lab-mix has had a bout with parasites for the last six weeks.  The second round of medications and I feel the holistic oils I began giving him have cleared him of any parasites.  I learned about the holistic oils from my massage therapist.  She had used it on her dog after three rounds of dewormers didn't work.  The book she showed me about various  holistic oils said this particular one helped remove parasites.  Did it do the trick, I'm not sure, but now our dog is clear of the parasites and is going to be free to mingle with other dogs.

Wow fifty-two pounds

This past Wednesday, Mac had to receive his Lyme disease booster.  He's had a series of the necessary puppy shots and still loves to visit the vet's office.  They tend to spoil him.  On the scale Mac weighed in at 52 lbs.  His first vet visit six weeks ago he was 34, next visit 43, third visit 47.  They keep checking his weight to make sure they are giving him the proper heart worm and flea and tick control products.  I believe he will top out between 80 to 100 lbs.  Our big baby and he's only 5-1/2 months old.

They're Here!

If you followed the Boston Marathon bombing closely and enjoy police thrillers, my eighth book will keep you spell bound.  No there is no marathon bombing in it.  However, there is enough to keep you on the edge of your seat until you finish the 444 page book.  Go to and order an autographed copy.

I have expanded my creative abilities by having studied and practiced photography for the last couple of years.  A week ago I have created a website with some of my photography posted over and above the local exhibits that I participate in.  If you would like to visit my photography website it is:  Currently I have 101 images posted onto the site in various galleries.  Let me know what you think if you browse the site.

Update on Mac the jet black lab -mix

Mac has been with us for six weeks now.  He is a bundle of joy as a puppy and is growing with leaps and bounds.  We were told he was 30 lbs. when we adapted him.  Two weeks later he was 34 lbs.  Two weeks later again. getting his proper shots he was 43 lbs. Yesterday, he received his first of two Lyme disease shots and was weighed in at 47 lbs.  We were told by the rescue people and by our own vet he would probably be 80 lbs.  Not a problem our last dog was 75 lbs. of solid muscle.  Somehow I get the feeling Mac will be between 80-90 lbs.  Only time will tell.  He is a love though.
