Mushers in Scotland

August 29, 2011

Having just returned from lecturing at this year’s American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association Conference while in the midst of preparing to move from my home of 16 years in less than a week (no worries, this is by my choosing).  I’ve simply not managed to put fingers to keyboard and produce a blog that I would consider meaningful. Rather than skip a week, I’ve opted to provide you with something for your viewing rather than your reading pleasure.

I love this piece titled, “The Boys and the Kids” because it so deftly portrays the human animal connection.  I think I’d love it even if the creator of this piece weren’t my daughter Susannah, a photojournalism student at Ohio University.  Part of her curriculum takes place in Scotland (my, my what lucky students) which is where this video was created.  Enjoy.
