Today in St. Peters, MO: Chance of thunderstorms, high 75 degrees. Light rain this morning.

Here's some good news from Pat Wahler, a member of Saturday Writers, and a member of a critique group I belong to as well. Pat's true story "Canine Angel" is included in the just-released Chicken Soup for the Soul: What I Learned from the Dog.

Pat read her story one evening at our critique group. It is such a moving story, and Pat is a wonderful writer and supporter of dogs and other critters. Check out her Critter Alley blog if you get a chance. She posts about critters of all varieties, and occasionally posts call-outs for submissions about --- what else --- critters!

Way to go, Pat!
