Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Hi Everyone,

Australian Shepherd HerdingLast month I asked if anyone would like to submit articles to appear on the website. Kate Suchodolski took me up on the offer and her article Starting Agility Training With Your Aussie is the first of what she plans as a series. Even better—Kate then told me that she was only 13 years old and had gotten her mom's permission to submit the very well written article. Great job Kate!

Kate suggested that we should have a "Junior Writer" program to showcase articles by young people. I thought that was a terrific idea. I'm happy to encourage young writers 16 years old and under to develop and share their writing. I even created a "Juior Writer" logo to highlight articles from our young writers.

Congratulations go to Kate, on being our first "Junior Writer" and I'm looking forward to reading more articles from her and all the other articles from our young writers to come.

No matter what your age, if you have an idea for an article you would like to submit for publication on the site contact me and let me know what you have in mind!

Merry Christmas everyone! Enjoy the holiday season and we'll see you in 2016.

~ Anton
