Hi, everyone. Welcome to my corner! I’m not actually Danelle’s book-hero from CAPTAIN OF MY HEART, though both my registered name and my call name are in homage to him. I’m not Irish either, but German-American … heck, I’m not even a human, but a dog, though we German Shorthaired Pointers think we *are* human. Mom gave me my very own space on her website to provide a light-hearted and personal look at the life she shares with me and other members of our pack. Maybe you’ll find an animal care tip here. Or a recipe on how to make dog biscuits. Or yet another photo of me. I’m rather shy about that, as I don’t much like to have my picture taken. My show photos prove it.
So, a little about me. Like the fellow for whom I’m named, I’m pretty high-energy, and I love life. I’m awfully attached to Mom – no surprise, as I was the first puppy born in the first litter she ever bred and whelped, and that makes the bond between us rather special. Also like the man for whom I’m named, I like to hunt… not British merchant ships, but squirrels. Birds. Rabbits. (I honestly don’t know if they’re British or not. I don’t really care.) I’m always in motion, I get things done (did you know I’m an AKC Champion of Record?) and I’m loyal and protective. Unlike the Brendan of Mom’s books, though, I don’t like water. Actually (and don’t tell anyone this, or it’ll be a discredit to my webbed feet) I’m afraid of it. But no matter. I have an “in” on all the gossip going on in Mom’s household. You’ll find my posts below. Enjoy, and happy reading!
