    Loved the interview with Dr Mark in this week's newsletter. Especially learning that he used his HP earnings to buy backpacks and school supplies for local children. And he treats people's pets for free.

    He helped me with a problem with MableAble's ears so a big thank you to Dr Mark from both of us.

      I was thrilled to see HP highlight a veteran HP writer.

      It's nice that they try to bring traffic to new writers by introducing them to us, but the longtime veterans need a shout-out, too. After all, they are who have kept HP alive!

      Through this interview, I've learned things about Dr. Mark that his profile doesn't reveal. Now that I've become more active in the forums (I read but don't always comment), I've taken to checking out profiles of those I see quite frequently, and have even chosen to follow a few as a result.

      Dr. Mark always offers insightful comments. I don't have large or farm animals; cats are my preferred companions (over humans!).

      I enjoyed the interview and will take another look at Dr. Mark. His compassion and need and willingness to help humans in addition to animals deems him as a gift for all life.

      Thanks for highlighting him even more, Bev!

      Bev, I'm yet to read the news letter. I'll check my feed.                                               And he treat your dog and others without charging you and the others a penny? Many thanks to his humanitarian gesture.

        Linda lives up to her name (pretty). She is a lovely dog.

        What breed is she, DrMark? She looks like a mix of Dobie and Shepard. Her legs are quite thick and so is her coat.

          She is an Australian Cattle Dog (BLUE Heeler). She sleeps in one of the stables with the sheep!!!

            Beautiful dog! She looks like she has a sweet personality. How old is she?

              Not sure how sweet she is but she does herd the ducks (Border Collie ancestry) and chase the sheep and bite their heels when they get out of line (Dingo ancestry). She was about 8 weeks old when Amanda took that photo, but that was about a month ago.

            She's a blue heeler? I would have never guessed, but then most of them I've seen have at least a partially mottled coat. My uncle kept Australian cattle dogs to herd his dairy cattle. We loved them.

              Here is a shot of her yesterday taking care of one of the sheep. (Just kidding!) She looks more like an ACD now that she is getting older.

    It was a very inspiring interview. I love the points that Bev mentioned in her first paragraph (and the fact that Dr. Mark helped her dog).

    It was a wonderful and worthy  interview. When I first started at HP I remember they did interviews with established hubbers regularly. I hope this is the start of something.

      Miebakagh, they come in your email. Go to Account Settings, found in Profile, and click on "Allow HubPages to Contact You?", then "keep me up to date with HubPages news". That should allow you to receive the newsletter in your inbox.

      There's also an online archive of newsletters, Miebakagh, and I believe that the Dr Mark interview is there.
