Hi. My name is Judy.
I have been writing for a few years now and have mostly concentrated on short stories and fiction. I am now having a great time writing online articles.
I mostly write about fauna as I find the various adaptations of animals and birds fascinating. The animal kingdom is very diverse and there are still dozens of animals I keep coming across for the first time. My husband and I live on 18 acres in south-west Western Australia. We are both now retired. We run a small few house concerts each summer, we've converting a bus to a motor home. Our two sons live miles away; the elder lives in Melbourne on the other side of the continent and the younger is married and lives in Dublin, Ireland. We belong to couch-surfers.com and enjoy having young people (and some older) from all nationalities to stay for a night or two as they travel through our country.
Some of my featured articles are:
Facts_About_Animal_Tongues
Australias_Own_Didgeridoo
All_About_the_Manta_Ray

South_American_Rodents_-_An_Unusual_Group
 One_Of_A_Kind_-_The_Osprey

There is no doubt a dog to suit everyone but sometimes the choice made over the breed of dog goes astray and the result in an unhappy owner and an equally unhappy dog. When this happens, dogs may be surrendered to a rescue centre in the hope that a more appropriate home will be found. Some breeds are given up in greater numbers than other breeds.
