About Oscar Dandelion

Hi, I'm Faith McCord, writer of the Oscar Dandelion books. I love reading, writing, watching films, looking at architecture and general design, embroidery (especially Elizabethan), spending time with my family. I used to enjoy long walks, bodybuilding, going out, however, since my injury my mobility is seriously impaired, so I'm more of a home-body now. I'm interested in meeting other indie / pro writers, so do say 'Hello' ! :)

  3. Personally, I have seen my dog experience grief. When my daughter went off to college, she left her Westie behind with me. Her dog, Megan, moped around for at least two weeks.

    Currently, I have two dogs. One dog, Teddy, is starting to have serious health issues and has needed to visit the vet a few times recently. Our other dog, Spencer, howled and cried the entire time that Teddy was out of the house. Spencer could not be consoled.

    I am glad to sent this article. It may be coming in very handy soon. (Teddy is getting very close to the end of his life here.)
