Now, Jill’s latest book – Major Makes History: From the Shelter to the White House -- tells the tale of President Biden’s friendship with Major, the first shelter dog in the White House. Hilarious and filled with heart, Major Makes History is written in the dog’s voice, and offers his perspective on adjusting to the White House and his urgent calling in life—to support and care for the president. When President Biden adopted his Major from the Delaware Humane Association in 2018, their bond was immediate. President Biden rescued Major and provided him with a loving home. What he didn’t know is that Major would also rescue him too.

Jill Twiss can share more details about this new, heartwarming book; her inspiration for telling Major’s story; offer perspective on how Major compares with past presidential pets; and offer information for adopting shelter animals.

Bee Scared Plants the Seed of Environmentalism in Young Minds
 
OSWEGO, NY, September 21, 2021“Your Majesty,” said the Scout Bee to the Queen of the Bees, “The Honeybees are in trouble. They are disappearing in great numbers!”
 
What will the queen do? Who will she turn to? How will she keep her hive safe from harm? Without bees there will be no fruit, no vegetables and no flowers.
 
Bee Scared, an Old Doc Turtle adventure from author Richard Faith, follows the Queen and her community of family and friends as they try to find a solution to this scary problem. They use music. They call on Auntie Bee. Even Old Doc Turtle becomes concerned! Can your young reader think of any ways to help Auntie Bee save the honeybees?
 
This delightful children’s tale delivers a simple lesson about the challenges of climate change and global warming — and the impact on nature’s tiniest but mightiest of creatures — in a way that young audiences can understand. Bee Scared can help you open a dialogue with the curious young people in your life about the importance of conservationism and protecting the future of our planet.
 
Author Richard Faith is passionate about raising awareness regarding the impacts of global warming and climate change. He is also the author of the science fiction series, Megamerse, which features a superhero who fights for Mother Earth. Megamerse has been turned into a screenplay and talks are ongoing with a movie studio. Faith’s other book titles include "I Can Barely See" Said Mandy Manatee, Barkley & Silvia, Crocodilly Lilly: Not so Toothy A Grin and The Owl that Said What.
 
Faith is also the executive director of Mother Nature Festival Live Incorporated (http://mothernaturefestival.live), a 501(c)3 nonprofit that works to educate, inform and inspire everyone to get involved in helping Mother Nature.

The American Kennel Club (AKC), AKC Canine Health Foundation (AKCCHF), and Theriogenology Foundation (TF) are pleased to announce that Auburn University, The Ohio State University, and the University of Pennsylvania have been selected through a competitive grant application process to receive residency program funding in 2022 through the AKC/AKCCHF/TF Small Animal Theriogenology Residency Program.

This program has provided funding to train more than 12 veterinary specialists in theriogenology and clinical genetics since it started in 2014. Theriogenology is the branch of veterinary medicine concerned with reproduction - including the physiology and pathology of male and female reproductive systems, and the clinical practice of veterinary obstetrics, gynecology, and andrology. Providing support for training in companion animal reproductive medicine and surgery, canine clinical genetics, health research, and clinical practice ensures that specialists will be available to address the health needs of current and future generations of dogs.

This is the third AKC/AKCCHF/TF Small Animal Theriogenology Residency funded at Auburn University where residents have the unique opportunity to manage the reproductive medicine needs of the university’s Canine Performance Sciences (CPS) Program in addition to case management through the teaching hospital. CPS maintains an active canine breeding program with a focus on elite, purpose-bred detection dogs.

This is also the third AKC/AKCCHF/TF Small Animal Theriogenology Residency funded at The Ohio State University. This two-year program provides training, mentorship, and support for residents, helping them become advocates for responsible purebred dog ownership and reproduction.

This is the second AKC/AKCCHF/TF Small Animal Theriogenology Residency funded at the University of Pennsylvania. Residents here have an opportunity for involvement with the PennVet Working Dog Center (PVWDC) and the development of a National Working Dog Breeding Co-op (NWDBC) in addition to their duties at the teaching hospital.

“The AKC Canine Health Foundation and its donors are proud to support the training of specialists in reproductive medicine and clinical genetics,” says J. Charles Garvin, MD, FACS, Chairman of the AKCCHF Board of Directors. “We know that these specialists are valuable partners in responsible dog breeding and the appropriate use of genetic health testing. Our continued collaboration will truly benefit many generations of dogs and their owners.”

“The AKC, AKC Canine Health Foundation, and the Theriogenology Foundation value this joint commitment to companion animal reproductive health as an invaluable tool for training the next generation to advance the health of purebred, purpose bred dogs, and establishing positive working relationships with breeders,” says Mari-Beth O’Neill, Vice President of Sport Services at the American Kennel Club.

"The residencies provided by AKC, AKCCHF and the Theriogenology Foundation provide a vital opportunity for top level training and education in canine reproduction,” says Dr. Mike Thompson, President of the Theriogenology Foundation. “Through these residencies, more highly trained veterinarians are available for purebred, purpose bred dogs and their owners.  The Theriogenology Foundation is very appreciative of this collaboration to train expert level reproduction veterinarians."

AKCCHF also offers educational grants to encourage the next generation of veterinary scientists. In addition to the AKC/AKCCHF/TF Small Animal Theriogenology Residency Program, they award Clinician-Scientist Fellowships for those pursuing a career in canine health research. Funding for the AKC/AKCCHF/TF Small Animal Theriogenology Residency Program has been extended through 2023. To learn more and support the program, visit www.akcchf.org/therio
