April 2014 Dog Bytes

In This Issue


A Note from the Editor

Welcome to the new Dog Bytes format. The newsletter will now be completely online. This change has come about to facilitate a changed in editors. After almost 15 years of producing the newsletter I will be stepping down. Dave and Janeé Kemp will be taking over as the new editors.

While this change may seem sudden, it’s actually one I’ve been debating for a couple of years. I’ve been wanting to step down, but the software used for the former newsletters made it extremely difficult to find a new editor. Dave and Janeé offered to take over and learn about InDesign. But after some conversations, we decided that moving to an online format would be the best choice for an easy turn-over.and the future.

I sincerely appreciate all the support over the years and hope you will continue to support Dave and Janeé in their new endeavor.

Thank You,
Kelly J Callahan, Editor
