Editorial Reviews

From the Author


The idea for this book came to me shortly after I lost one of my dogs, Stumpy Joe, to a car accident in my driveway.  My 82 year old father, who was living with us at the time, was walking him when it happened.

It was one of the only times I ever saw my Dad cry.  Our entire family was crushed. It was then I realized  we were attached to him in ways that defy description and how ridiculous it sounded when people said "It was just a dog."

I stewed on this for several years, and at the ripe age of 60, I decided it was time to share that experience in a way that might touch other people's lives.  I asked myself "What if this happened to everyone?"  And thus, the tall tale of Canine Plague came to life.

Stumpy Joe makes an appearance in this story.  I hope you enjoy his antics.

About the Author

Burt is a retired Air Force officer, having spent his last ten years in the software development arena. After retirement from the Air Force, he moved to Kentucky to join an electronic payments business started by his father-in-law. While working there, he oversaw a major transition in the software that was the critical asset that propelled the company to modest success in subsequent years. The family sold the business in 2005. Burt attributes much of his success to the underappreciated practice of nepotism. Following the sale of the family business, Burt began a fifteen-year journey in promoting entrepreneurial initiatives in central Kentucky. He has served on the Central Region Innovation and Commercialization Center board of directors, has been a judge in the highly regarded Idea State U business plan competition, as well as many other competitions in the state of Kentucky. Burt has dabbled in various other entrepreneurial endeavors himself. Some have succeeded and some have failed. He claims he has learned more from his failures than from his successes. Among those were; in a joint startup with his son Corey, a speech pathologist, and being the first to develop mobile applications for speech therapists. The company has developed over twenty mobile applications. He is currently self-employed as an independent project manager on software development projects for startup companies. Burt is a board member and is actively involved in a pet rescue organization called Forever Homes for Paws. He is also a firm believer in the virtue of preparedness and has studied extensively on the processes, practices, and philosophies of those who prepare for calamities of nearly every sort. Some have referred to him as a card-carrying, tinfoil hat wearing prepper. For anyone interested in knowing more about a preparedness lifestyle, Burt recommends using the Proclivus app. It is free and can be accessed using the Apple App Store or for desktop and other mobile browsers at http://proclivus.com. Burt has been married for thirty years and has three adult children with two grandsons.
