Today my agent gave me a list of publishers she sent the GoD and DoG book proposal to. It's exciting...but unpredictable. I have no idea how publishers will react to GoD and DoG as a book. Here is a wonderful letter I received today...wow.

I recently embarked on a journey back to God; alcoholism had placed a chasm between us. That's why the most meaningful words in your song -- to me, at least -- are "I'm the one who walks away. But both of them just wait for me, and dance at my return with glee". The thought of God dancing with glee at my return to Him is one of the most wonderful things I have ever imagined.Thank you, thank you, thank you. -Brian

A Mil!

On Sept 14th GoD and DoG reached a million views after being posted for 40 days. It has been one of the busiest times I've ever had. There has been a steady stream of mail. It is amazing to read how people feel about the song. I have a literary agent now and we hope that GoD and DoG will be made into a book. I have been doing interviews and articles and trying to keep up with the sites. The DVD will ship out any day now and we are excited about that. There have been many preorders for it. Although the cafe press store is doing well, Cindy (our office manager) and I decided to do our own mugs and t-shirts because we can get them so they won't be so expensive to buy. So we did the orders for that today. It has been such a fun thing to work on all of the GoD and DoG projects. We are still so surprised and thrilled at the response the video has had.

GoD and DoG News











Well, GoD and DoG has 300,000 views in 3 weeks. Yesterday it had 40,000 visits. Today we are sending in the DVD master to be manufactured...it turned out beautifully. I am also sending the CD master to our office manager Cindy, who will duplicate and ship it out starting early next week. I am getting many orders for both everyday. I am also getting many Cafe Press orders for T-Shirts, bumper stickers, mugs, etc. I am having a great time answering tons of GoD and DoG email. Some of the letters are amazing.

This is sure an adventure. :-)

GoD and DoG news...

This moring I updated my site, blog, Facebook, and Twitter, sent Celeborn on his way to his new home, did barn chores, designed T-Shirt artwork and launched a Cafe Press store for God and Dog, and answered all my email. GoD and DoG was at 20,000 yesterday and today it has had nearly 30,000 views... so... I guess this is what you call going viral. Time for breakfast.
:-) Yay.

I sold a horse, my black colt Celeborn. He is a beauty... here's his photo. The second photo is with Jerusalem, my stallion.

I will miss Celeborn. He's the sweetest colt. Jerusalem is a great influence on colts. Celeborn is not his son, but he raised him anyway. He insists the young boys are mannerly in general and polite to humans. When I am in the corral, Jerusalem will not allow the colts to be rude or bratty around me.

So when the people came to see Celeborn, we all stood in the corrral with both horses who tried to nudge each other out of the way to get the most hugs. I love working with Friesians and Andalusians. Both breeds are so sweet, intelligent, and people oriented. Celeborn is going to a great home - that's wonderful to know.

GoD and DoG news...

On it's first day up, "GoD and DoG" (my new animation - see animation label) logged over 1200 You Tube visits. I got a note from You Tube with a congratulations and saying that they can't track the count that fast in real time, so I'd have to check every few hours if I wanted to see how it was doing. I have been answering GoD and Dog email all day. This is pretty fun. I am planning another animation... it's alot of work, but I don't notice the time going by.

Here are photos from the Alaskan Crusie we just finished. We'll be going again next year, late July. Go to http://www.christiancruises.net/ for info.
These trips are wonderful beyond words... just unforgettable.
Here is my new animation! This is the first of many (I hope).



video

GoD and Dog was inspired by my dog, Caspian, who loves and protects me. If he had his way, he'd stay with me all day. That's a photo of Caspian below. He's a wonderful dog and keeps the property safe. I do believe that dogs and all creatures reflect a part of their creator.

Here is Snow, our other dog, with her last litter of pups. They are known as LGDs, or livestock Guardian Dogs. Both Caspian and Snow are a 3/4 Great Pyrenees, 1/4 Anatolian Shepherd cross. We will have pups this coming Christmas.









Well, I hope you enjoy my first animated video. I am already planning the next one!
