Welcome to my World

Welcome to the domain different--to paraphrase from New Mexico's capital city of Santa Fe which bills itself "The City Different." Perhaps this space is not completely unique but my world shapes what I write as well as many other facets of my life. The four Ds figure prominently but there are many other things as well. Here you will learn what makes me tick, what thrills and inspires me, experiences that impact my life and many other antidotes, vignettes and journal notes that set the paradigm for Dierdre O'Dare and her alter ego Gwynn Morgan and the fiction and poetry they write. I sell nothing here--just share with friends and others who may wander in. There will be pictures, poems, observations, rants on occasion and sometimes even jokes. Welcome to our world!

HELP!! Save a maligned Service Dog!!

This matter came to my attention through a friend and fellow dog lover. The whole story makes me both sick to my stomach and fighting mad! I have signed the petition although I am not sure what good it will do. Maybe enough public outrage will have some effect.

Maybe the woman in the story raised this dog or works with dogs but her actions reveal nothing but ignorance and stupidity, You do not break up a dog fight by beating an animal, guilty of 'starting' the fight or not! Dogs will fight at times as it is instinctive and natural behavior. You do not get into the middle of it--I know as I made that dumb mistake once myself a few years ago and I too got bitten. But I merely allowed my dog to be quarantined in my fenced yard, provided record of his vaccinations and totally refused to have him declared a vicious dog because he was not!! It seems to me this woman is trying to gain profit and sympathy for her own stupidity and cruelty and that is nothing but big time wrong!!! I say charge her with animal cruelty and let the dog go free!!

Here is the link to the story and the petition. Do what your conscience dictates!
