Dog Escapes Shelter to Track Down Woman Who Fed Him Treats

Ted the German shepherd-Akita mix and Abbey Boyd the SPCA worker became a match made in heaven after cheese-flavored bacon strips brought them together. Ted was brought into the Northwest Territories SPCA in Yellowknife on Friday. Terrified by the building and surrounding humans, the canine refused to leave his kennel. style=”display:inline-block;width:300px;height:250px” data-ad-client=”ca-pub-8420654331411867″ data-ad-slot=”1313712966″> In an Continue reading


Thank You For Dying, Jess

Thank You For Dying, Jess By KC James Recently I was invited to attend a business networking event. Since I have been trying to work out of my accounting career I was going to decline.

Relatively Speaking: Who am I?

WHO AM I? There was a special tree my friends and I would climb when I was about eight years old. Its lowest branches grew out of its trunk about four feet off the ground and proceeded to extend horizontally for about eight feet before rising up. The branches were wide enough that we could Continue reading

LAURA SCHROFF: A holiday tale of true giving

One of the best holiday presents I ever received didn’t arrive in a box. It wasn’t wrapped. It certainly didn’t come from a fancy store. It was a little scuffed and worn-out, and the person who gave it to me didn’t pay a nickel for it. And yet it made my heart swell with love Continue reading


An Uncommon Joy: A day in the life of a special needs parent

It begins first thing in the morning, you hear your child call out. This isn’t a normal yell; it’s a guttural croak, yelp or groan. Your eyes snap open with a start. It’s not like you were in a very deep sleep, anyway. You hurriedly make your way to your little one’s bedside, more calm Continue reading


Caregiver Diaries: An Unbroken Man

When I was young I loved sitting under my parent’s desk, tucked away in my quiet cubbyhole, writing poetry. In school, instead of listening to my math teacher, I spent too much time daydreaming and writing. I still avoid numbers, but adore words. This is one reason I am attracted to Eric Fischer’s story. Eric’s Continue reading

Caregiver Diaries: For the Love of Sev

I met Nanett Prausa in 1999 when our boys were babies and we were both part of an email listserv for parents of children with microcephaly. Through that forum we could talk to other parents on a daily basis about feeding problems, seizure treatment, growth and vision issues. It was a great way to pool Continue reading


Relatively Speaking: The Cycle of Change

Thanksgiving day in 1985 was dreary and cold. My son, our first child, had been born eight days earlier but spent his first six days of life in the hospital. He had contracted viral meningitis shortly after being born making the joy of his birth short-lived. His young, first-time parents hadn’t prepared for that possibility Continue reading


Putting Your Passion to Work

  We leisurely stroll through life and think, “I know what passion is.” Your initial memory of passion may be your very first girlfriend…in second grade. The next: maybe a trading card collection or bag of marbles. Passion can be a fickle and fleeting thing. One day you’re excited, animated and motivated. The next, you Continue reading
