Hi, my name is veriterc!

I write books and am stuck at home at the moment, as long term effects from cancer drugs have made me walk as if I am drunk - and I don't even drink!
This sounds very big headed- and please delete - but if anyone is a fellow dog-lover, during a hospital stint I wrote a book "About the Border Terrier", full of short stories, anecdotes etc. about these feisty little animals.  I wanted it to be something people could dip into, and then leave, if they were going through treatment as well. But hopefully be positive and give a few smiles. 
I also write about PAT dogs, Hearing dogs, etc. and wish we could get immediate attention when we go to our 'vet'!
