New Pack member....writing stuff

Orlaith
Yeah, I continue to suck about using LJ. The last time it was anything except a Twitter feed was when we lost Òrlaith. I had mentioned then that we had started a magazine Air n-Aithesc had come out with our first issue shortly before this....now I shall note that our second issue is coming out on August 1st!  I have an article in it on Finn and Cú Chulainn's foster-mothers/martial arts teachers.  The first issue, where I have an article on women warriors and another on wolf-warriors is still available too.

There was another piece of publication info that I neglected to post here too. I have an essay, "Musings on the Irish Goddesses of War" in the anthology By Blood, Bone and Blade: A Tribute to the Morrígan which was released in May. However, it had been pulled about a month later due to some mistakes which had been missed. Word has it that these mistakes have now been fixed and a new hard copy is being inspected and it should be released again soon.

I also have added quite a bit of material on Shadow of the Hooded Crow including a page on the War Goddesses, the warrior path and have added a training outline.

And! After all these months of being houndless, although not dogless, we have finally been emotionally ready to adopt another hound.  This is Gránne, formerly Sunset Seduction.  She is 4, very sweet, smart and still working on adjusting to our pack. She also has had seizures, but they seem to be well controlled. *knockswood* We brought her home Tuesday.   Img_4549r

I had hoped to get a plug in here for Air n-Aithesc, the peer-reviewed CR magazine I'm on the review board of and have a couple of articles in the premiere issue before I did this post but I never get over here enough.

I had written earlier that Òrlaith had been diagnosed with bone cancer in her jaw, discovered over Thanksgiving just months after we lost Cù. Given her age and how horribly invasive it would be, we choose not to have her jaw amputated and replaced. Having that done, going through chemo, having the possibility of other things happening due to age and the chemo...we just figured she'd be miserable through it. We opted instead to try several herbal remedies to try to slow it and spoil her rotten. These things worked well together, because the remedies were all disguised as treats.

The first vet to diagnose her said she'd be gone by about Yule, maybe, New Years. We took her to another vet, now our new vet (Bethel Animal Hospital) who said that there was no way to tell. They were also very supportive about our choice and provided some of the treatments we used as well as investigated the others...their suggestion was to do them all. It was growing very fast at first and at one point shortly after my previous post, we thought it would, indeed, be just days. However, it did seem to slow, although still grow. January came and went, she was still with us a month longer than we'd first hoped. Still enjoying life, still eating ...in fact, she got a bit plump during this as we couldn't say "no." When it was warmish (that is above 20 F) she was thrilled to go for walks with Gleann and Sachairi...especially excited to sniff and mark over coywolf marks and go deer "hunting" (she'd sniff along deer tracks). We spent a lot of time snuggling, as she had gone from hiding all the time to velcro hound.



The week before last the tumor was clearly getting uncomfortable for her. Even truly painful. While we upped her pain meds, it was clear she was not as happy. She had moments but we wanted her to never get to that time when she didn't have any good moments.

She is with her Cù now. They had been inseparable before. I strongly believe all my hounds are together. They are, indeed, all in my heart. The boys and we are mourning. I will, again, probably be blogging on this more at some point.
