The motto of nosleepingdogs is “No snoring, no lying”. The top photo is of our English Mastiff Bart, who certainly exemplifies the second part; as for the snoring, he does, but at the advanced age of ten his snores are soft and soothing. Really!
WordPress evidently cuts off usernames at 13 characters, so the WP username for the writer here is nosleepingdog, without the s of the blog title.
This blog has no specific topic/focus: I post about whatever interests me if I think I have something interesting to say. And the time to write a post and whip it into shape. I enjoy doing the thinking, research, and writing of a post; I look forward to learning from the comments of others, but ones that just say you read it and enjoyed it are rewarding too!
My working past includes being a zookeeper for many years, and working in university libraries. For some years now I have been coping with fibromyalgia, trying to increase the energy I have for things like researching pet topics. I do some volunteer work, giving away kids’ books at the local food pantry, and also participating in our library’s Friends organization. I’m a Mac user and enthusiast, a dog lover, and a fan of science fiction.
