Q: When and why did you begin writing?
I’m proud of my work as staff writer for Be the Change for Animals, and write the column there Animals 4people. I love the causes and organizations we help promote there.
And my blog is Peggy’s Pet Place.
One of my favorite stories resulted from interviewing Bill Berloni, theatrical animal trainer, for Guideposts magazine. I had so much fun meeting him at the Humane Society in NYC, where he also helps coordinate pet adoptions. I learned all about how he discovered the very first dog Sandy for Annie on Broadway, and all the other dogs he works with in shows, movies and commercials. The dogs live on his farm when they’re done working.
Answer: I’d sit in an Adirondack chair in a field on a beautiful warm day, looking out over a lake, with my whole family with me, and Kelly too of course. And there’d be other dogs all running around playing together along the shore. And all the birds and the wildlife running around outside, and fish jumping up out of the water would be so fun to watch, so much better than TV. I might read, or do a crossword puzzle, but mostly I’d just watch.
