You know that research I'm doing about junkyard dogs? Well, this morning I'm headed to the Montreal SPCA. I'm going to interview the acting director, Alanna Devine, who tells me she knows "too much" about guard dogs. Hope to take lots of notes for my new book project. The rest of the week is going to be super busy -- my students are writing exams for me and one class is handingin their first essay -- but I'll try to take a short break from correcting and tell you a little about what I learn from Alanna. Hope wherever you are, you're also doing something that excites you!
