Bark for Life

I wanted to mention an event I’ll be participating in this May. It’s called Bark for Life, and it’s part of a fundraiser to raise money to fight cancer. The event takes place in Hanover, PA, on May 12th, and it features a one-mile dog walk with lots of doggie-themed door prizes and gifts. There will also be dog-themed vendors (including a certain author autographing copies of Corgi Capers!). The best part is: you can bring your dog(s)! If you’re in the area, please stop by and help raise money for a good cause.
