SB250 gets a spanking

This from Bill Hemby at PetPac
"SB 250, the mandatory pet sterilization bill, is dead for this year! The California Assembly said NO to SB 250 by a 28-42 vote on Wednesday. The author of the bill, Senator Dean Florez has turned SB 250 into a two year bill meaning he can bring the bill back up to be revoted on in January. "

New Book from Nancy Whitehead

Recently I was visiting Bob Welch in Hailey, Idaho and he introduced me to Nancy Whitehead, who is known for the images of sporting dogs she has contributed to popular magazines. Nancy keeps a kennel and travels widely to run her dogs and photograph on assignment.  She has just published a new book of her sporting dog images - In the Field, a photographer's journey with sporting dogs. The book is quite striking, and is available for sale on her website. I bought a copy, but didn't have the good sense to ask her to autograph it for me while we stood and talked dogs for over an hour.
