As friends and fans of GIMME SHELTER know, I was living at the Agoura Hills Animal Shelter when Lou & Eugenie happened by. They weren’t looking for a dog, especially not a Pit Bull, but my sweet disposition and composed demeanor (my friends at Sandpiper Kennel call me “Tanner With Manners”) won them over. If you want to know more, you can read all about it in the book, which would make a great holiday gift for the dog lovers’ in your life, hint, hint. I mention it now because on October 5, we participated in the Author’s Event at the Annual Agoura Hills ‘Reyes Adobe Days’, a festival commemorating the founding of the pueblo-turned-city. We had a fabulous time chatting with visitors and signing books. We must have made a good impression because they invited us to participate (as in sell books) at their Annual Holiday Boutique. Many thanks to Amy Brink Jones, Jamie Goldstein, their colleague and the people of Agoura for making us feel welcome. And a big ‘thank you’ to the folks at the L.A. County Agoura Shelter, for helping animals in need.
