Don't Eat Bees!

Don't Eat Bees! is the author's literary tribute to Dale, her real bee-eating, German Shepherd. 

 Lisa trained Dale to sit for hours in the woods alongside her, while she worked on her bald eagle documentary (above photo). Dale learned how to unzip her bag and get his own water bottle. Why drink the creek when spring water is readily available in Lisa's work a bag? Once, he had to retrieve her hat that he'd sneaked off with and left in the woods––a half mile away at their last stop. On Dale's 14th birthday, Dale didn't snap up his steak, he knew not to touch his t-bone steak sitting on the plate at his feet until Lisa was ready to take his picture.  Lisa says that Dale could be trained to do anything that didn't interrupt his favorite pastime of chasing and snacking on bees. Dale was never stung.

Don't Eat Bees!

Dale, the bee-eating German Shepherd hits bee-gold when he unwittingly snatches up a tasty queen
The queen's sister (a retired queen bee, herself) offers Dale the deal of a lifetime and beyond––if he’ll free her sister. Dale accepts the deal, but can the foolhardy dog give up his bee-eating and chasing habits, forever, 
and keep his heavenly reward?
