    Save The Puppies

    in Motivation

    Did you know only 1 in 10 dogs have a permanent home? Everday hundreds of dogs are being abandoned, abused, or killed. This is the time to act. 

    Are animals any less than us? I guess that is an argument you have to decide for yourself, but for me, I believe in animal equality. 

    So, what can we do to save the puppies? Adopt, volunteer at animal shelters, or donate items to people fostering and adopting many dogs. 

    Lets be those dogs voices and #savethepuppies

    Afterwards, we will have special guest author Tom Knighton (author of Bloody Eden, Bad Moon on the Rise, and more). The topic is Sad Puppies and the Hugos.  What are sad puppies (aside from youthful canines with mood problems)? What do they have to do with what some consider to be science fiction's greatest award?  Will Sad Puppies win? Or will their adversaries destroy the Hugos before letting "outsiders" into the clubhouse?  Tom Knighton will be sure to unravel the complicated situation.

    Interview with Rebecca Woodworth Brodie

    in Goals

     I became involved working with inmates quite by accident. One day, a colleague asked me to meet with a woman incarcerated at MCI Framingham. I was really scared to go inside a prison but, in the end, it was not at all like I expected. The inmates were all dressed in sweat suits and bright white Keds style sneakers. The visiting room was open and bright and there was a play section with toys off to one side. Some of the inmates walked puppies on leashes. I felt more like I was in a college dorm than in a prison.

    When I met with the client, she was pleasant and polite. She didn’t proclaim innocence or make excuses. She fully accepted her situation and understood she had made poor choices. She was about my age. She was a mom, She had been involved with bad guys. Her life had been a lot like mine. Meeting this client changed my life and made me realize how, if not for a few different choices, she and I could be on opposite sides of the visitation table.

    Since that day, I began doing more work with inmates and working to change the outcome of those incarcerated. Eventually, my work with inmates led me to pursue a Master’s degree in criminal justice. I studied recidivism, prison programs, and the epidemic of suicides in prisons; of both inmates and correctional officers. I finished my MA from UMass Lowell in 2014.

    Since finishing my degree in criminal justice, I have been working toward prison reform. My goal is to overhaul the entire Massachusetts correctional system; making the system better for inmates, officers, communities as well as all the other stakeholders in the system. In my spare time, I am working toward a Master’s Degree in the Public Policy department from the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth – and running for Sheriff of Middlesex County (the first woman ever to even run for this office)

    My Old Dog: Rescued Pets with Remarkable Second Acts

    in Relationships

    My Old Dog introduces readers to endearing elders like Marnie, the irresistible shih tzu who has posed for selfies with Tina Fey, James Franco, and Betty White; Remy, a soulful 9-year-old dog adopted by elderly nuns; George Clooney's cocker spaniel, Einstein; and Bretagne, the last known surviving dog from Ground Zero. They may be slower moving and a tab less exuberant than puppies, but these pooches prove that adopting a senior brings immeasurable joy, earnest devotion, and unconditional love. Of special interest are the book's stories about retired working dogs--such as military dogs, law enforcement dogs, and racing dogs--who can find themselves languishing in kennels or left in overcrowded shelters after they age out of their vocations. The book also includes a comprehensive resource guide to help readers take action and help senior pets in all sorts of ways.
