  1. Hi Cherie,
    This is a note to you as opposed to a public comment. I'm a former Great Falls Tribune reporter and I have a book coming out in March -- a non-fiction account of a dog that survived a puppy mill. Would you be interested in talking with me about it for your program? The book is a narrative and also an expose. It's getting good reviews. You can find out more at my website: I'd love to speak with you. Contact me at if you're interested. Thanks!
