I met the Human two years ago when she came to the farm where I was born. I will admit, I am the better looking of the litter so I understand full well her instantaneous attraction towards me.
When she sits, I place my paw upon her lap. She leaves it there as she understand that she is my Human.
When she opens the back door of the shelter that she lives in, my heart beats wildly as I know that she will be whistling for me. My ears tingle with anticipation because I know a good, deep, rough scratching will occur shortly.
I am The Keeper of this family of two legged beings and I take this responsibility with great Honor and Pride. I will bark at anything that I deem an adversary including Mountain Lions, birds, fluttering leaves and the occasional Night Ninja.
When we have been alone, the Human has spoken of the issues in this world that bother her. She has a deep concern for the quality of life that her offspring will have to endure unless changes occur. It is my Duty to aid her in the tasks ahead.
I am a dad now. Fifty two of my offspring now walk the lands of my forefathers. I would like to leave this place respectable for their offspring.
Based in Indianapolis, Annie Berdel is a self proclaimed advocate of educating women in the art of personal protection and self reliance.
As an aspiring writer, Annie took her advocacy and dove into the dystopia genre with strong female lead characters. She surrounds herself with real woman ~ bad ass woman who might not have it all together but never quit. They are real and beautiful and out there fighting for all that is right in the world. They carry deep scares and jars of shed tears, but they still love and still laugh and still lift people who need the help.
A passion for firearms, herbal medicine, knives, slingshots, home canning, Kali street fighting, Kempo karate and a plethora of furry animals fuels the fire and adds countless stories to be told beginning with her inaugural book “Alpha Farm, The Beginning”.
Mother, business professional and bibliophile, in her spare time, Annie likes to stretch the boundaries of survival in a Post Apocalyptic scenario.
Wanting to leave The Big Blue Marble better than she found it for her children and grandchildren, Annie is always learning, always loving and always looking for ways to help people become self reliant and better prepared for whatever may come.
