Rene has a special relationship with animals. They all love her and she loves them. Here’s just a small snippet of her life:
I don’t know that I have a lot to say about this other than BBC nature documentaries are far more exciting than I thought.

Rene and I are doing a lot of re-branding and building of our web presence since our commitment to take control of our careers this year. This happens to coincide with the end of any contracts that existed with my old production company, Wiggy VonSchtick Productions. The only thing that came out of that dissolution in any way intact was the YouTube channel Wiggy Webs where we auditioned some web content.
The most popular videos were a series called Make-up with the Wolf where award winning make-up and F/X artist Myke “The Wolf” Michaels demonstrated how to do Hollywood level make-up effects on a budget. I’m proud to say that the most popular video is of Rene getting transformed into a Buffy style vampire.
But as I was looking back at the video manager I found a video that I had almost forgotten about and thought was worth featuring today. It was for a group that was trying to rehome over 80 dogs because the rescue that had been their home was being shut down. A group of photographers, including Lori Fusaro, and dog clothing manufacturers got together to take good, happy adoption photos that helped get all of these animals new homes, most at a rescue in a different state.
Watching this again, I remember being at the rescue site and how all the dogs could tell that something was going on, even before all the photoshoot started. Some were nervous, but many were so happy to have as much human interaction as they got that day. With the number of unwanted animals in the United States, rescues and shelters serve as savior to many animals that would otherwise die.

Even though Wiggy VonSchtick is shut down, Wiggy Webs is going to stay up as long as people keep watching it. And if we make the odd nickel every few months from Google AdSense that’s ok too.
Now back to the new stuff!
See you next time.
Writing the Little Nene story gave me lots of ideas for other children stories, especially ones starring Frankie doggy. This is the next one in the series and focuses on characters based on our dog, Frankie:
And my parents dog, Abby, who wasn’t actually crabby but was a bulldog so she had a crabby face:
I love talking animals. If it were possible I’d train Frankie and Charlie how to talk so that we could all sit around and have conversations.
YouTuber TalkingAnimals does some great work with this, as his name implies. Here are the four holiday songs that have been done.
In the spirit of “Frankie Avoids Certain Death” I have done a half-assed job of killing our cat.
Enjoy. If the mood strikes there may be as many as EIGHT more of these!
