Friends and readers, I am so sad to announce that Rudy passed away in December. You know our Beagle dog from my author photos, taken by Linda Joy Burke. He also appeared in my book Takedown as Lev’s dog, Grover. Rudy was an easy-going, funny pup and best friend to our Schnauzer, Sam. We will miss him.
