"LOCKED DOWN: Cats Write Pandemic Poetry” is a fun book that I wrote in a weekend when I asked myself how our cats are reacting to being locked down with us. Would they become jerks . . . or would they morph into kind kitties just as worried as we are about the state of the world? As one of my book’s reviewers says: “Who knew cats liked to sing duets, had food anxiety dreams, talked to goldfish, rode Roombas, and worried about sanitizing?” In poems and photos —some humorous, some touching — cats tell us what being locked down with us is like for them.

Michele and Jeff Allen said enough is enough and started a dog hospice and celebrate the beauty each dog has to offer. They have welcomed over 100 hospice dogs into their home, thankfully Cole was one of those dogs that experienced the final chapter of his life filled with dignity and love.

101 Rescue Puppies: One Family's Story of Fostering Dogs, Love, and Trust By Kathy Callahan New book offers A unique and cheering look into one family’s journey of fostering over 100 puppies and finding them homes “These are love stories, plain and simple.” — JENNIFER S. HOLLAND, author of the New York Times bestselling Unlikely Friendships series “Told with humor and humility, 101 Rescue Puppies is as entertaining as it is inspiring.” — TRAER SCOTT, author of Shelter Dogs and Finding Home Over the past decade, Kathy Callahan’s family has taken in more than 100 rescue puppies from shelters. Each pup has an endearing story, and in this delightful photo-filled book, Callahan shares many of them. Her family didn’t set out to be puppy saviors, but as Callahan puts it, “Somebody had surrendered a mother dog, Nala, and her less-than-a-month-old pups at the local shelter. . . . I thought about that exhausted nursing mom who’d been caring for those seven puppies around the clock, only to find herself suddenly homeless. There are a lot of terrible things that happen in life, and I can’t do a darned thing about most of them. It struck me that this was a tiny little tragedy in my corner of the world that our family could remedy.” A heartwarming read, this is also an inspiring example of finding your own way — through that one special thing you can do to light a light, instead of cursing the darkness. KATHY CALLAHAN is a certified professional dog trainer. Her PupStart business offers coaching, socialization, and training services to families with new dogs. She and her dogs have worked as a therapy team in elementary schools and nursing homes. She lives in Alexandria, Virginia.

Brecken Miles Brings Tidal Wave Of Emotion To New Single, “Meghan” - Available To Fans Now Track Debuts On iHeart Radio’s FM106.1 New From Nashville Show Next Tuesday Nashville, TN (September 11, 2020) – Singer/songwriter Brecken Miles brings a tidal wave of feeling to his emotionally raw new single, “Meghan.” In a surprise twist, fans can stream/download the song HERE now. Brecken’s fourth radio release, the track debuts globally next Tuesday, September 15, at 6 p.m. Central on iHeart Radio’s “New From Nashville” show (FM 106.1 / Milwaukee) and radio programmers can access the song via PLAY MPE. But like a tidal wave stronger than a hurricane My love for you is just as true As it was the first day but sometimes it feels like chasing the wind trying to hold onto you Meghan (B. Miles, M. Bollea Rowe) “Meghan” exposes the difficulties Miles and his wife Meghan have experienced over the last decade. Brecken notes, “It encompasses all the pain, emotion and undying love that I have for her. Those are my tears on the table and my heart on the floor.” When the strictures of the Covid-19 pandemic forced him home from the road, the couple realized they had to reconnect or let go. “Between my artist career, a part-time job and a city touring business in Milwaukee, we were like two ships passing in the night,” Brecken reflects. “Add a toddler to the mix and we just got lost.” The song is his plea to her to hang on through life’s storms and not give up on their life together. Miles’ longing and heartbreak can be heard in every line, and the crisp recording values make every perfectly placed note count. Produced by Larry Beaird (Dolly Parton, Billy Dean, Mark O’Connor), the song was written by hitmaker Melissa Bollea Rowe and Miles. “It's the true emotion Brecken brings to the vocal performance - along with Goose Gossett on harmonies and the outstanding musicianship of all the players - that take this song over the top,” notes Beaird. Bollea Rowe recalls the day the song was written, "It was an organically beautiful idea that showed up effortlessly for us as we sat down to write. I'm really proud of this one." Fans will have the opportunity to hear the new single live at these upcoming shows: 9/17 Kaiser's Pizza - Gurnee, Illinois 9/18 Fatmans - Gurnee, Illinois 9/20 Coins Sports Bar - Kenosha, Wisconsin 9/27 Cottage Tap - Gages Lake, Illinois 10/10 Cellar Bar - Oak Creek, Wisconsin 10/11 Jesse Oaks - Gages Lake, Illinois 10/30 Fatmans - Gurnee, Illinois ABOUT BRECKEN Singer/songwriter Brecken Miles has shared the stage with Luke Bryan, Brad Paisley, Luke Combs, Cam, Blake Shelton, Phil Vassar, Big & Rich, Justin Moore, and others. His far-reaching musical influences include Garth Brooks, Johnny Cash and James Taylor. He’s performed in venues ranging from festivals and fairs (Summerfest/Lake Michigan, Wisconsin State Fair, Allstate Arena/Chicago, IL, Country Thunder/Twin Lakes, WI, FM 106.1 New Faces Class of 2018 at Potawatomi Casino) to more intimate settings such as the world-class Bluebird Café. Music runs in the family: his father is a musician, and Miles followed that tradition, picking up his first guitar at the age of 10. He was raised in the small town of Colgate, Wisconsin where The Eagles, James Taylor, Springsteen, and AC/DC ruled the household airwaves. In 2008, Brecken became the front man/lead singer and rhythm guitarist for the popular Milwaukee-based band Bella Cain, performing over 200 shows a year until leaving the group in 2014. Miles has since gone solo and signed an exclusive publishing deal with Rhyme Partners Music Publishing. A top-10 finalist in the 2018 Nash Next Competition, he has enjoyed two Top 50 chart singles, "The Anchor," "I'm Good With That," and the radio-friendly “Liar Out Of Me.” Brecken is a devoted spokesperson for Generations Against Bullying, a Milwaukee-based charity for which he wrote “God Loves,” the organization’s theme song. In his spare time he loves fishing, hunting and camping with his family. Keep up with Brecken on his socials: www.breckenmiles.com Facebook Twitter: @breckenmiles Instagram: @breckenmiles # # #
