When life goes to the dogs, author figures things are looking up

“Dog aficionado J.D. Rogers didn’t cast his lot with Barack Obama during the general election.

‘I voted third party,’ says the Applegate Valley resident. ‘But since he has been elected, I’ll give him my support. I always give them a year to show what they can do.’

But Rogers is mightily impressed with the fact the president-elect has promised a pooch for his young daughters when the first family moves into the White House.

‘In my view, people who like dogs and treat them well, that’s an indication of good character,’ Rogers says. ‘If you can give love to an animal, that shows more of an open heart than someone who shuns animals.’

Based on that measurement, Rogers, 57, has a heart as big as a St. Bernard.

His love of four-footed friends romps with its tail wagging throughout his book, Ramblin’ Rants and Doggie Tales, recently published by Odyssey Press of Fallbrook, Calif.”
