101 Dog Tricks: Step-By-Step Activities to Engage, Challenge, and Bond with Your Dog [ 101 DOG TRICKS: STEP-BY-STEP ACTIVITIES TO ENGAGE, CHALLENGE, AND BOND WITH YOUR DOG ] by Sundance, Kyra ( Author) on Apr, 01, 2007 Paperback
(Kyra Kitts at 58 has learned that humor in the face of ad...)
Kyra Kitts at 58 has learned that humor in the face of adversity and the seemingly impossible is a necessary art form and, always searching for a brilliant line, she views life as poetry in motion. She faces the challenges of living in a toxic biome with sarcastic grace and compassion. The poet is a published columnist, community journalist and novelist. She also works with the dispossessed. Death and Other Things starkly illuminates the brilliance, the horrors and the wonders of our modern world. The poems speak to simple freedoms and complex injustices, which occur both under and away from society's collective eye. The gods are truly crazy; real miracles are to be found within.
