A Note from Patty Asheuer, the Managing Editor of the
American Ferret Report
To Our Loyal AFR Readers . . .
Please accept my sincere apologies for the long interruption in our AFR publication
schedule. And thank you, too, for your patience.
As Editor of the AFR, I’ve taken great pride in getting our quarterly Report
out and into your hands in timely fashion. Regrettably, that was not possible last year.
My mother passed away in May, and all ferret-related matters had to stop for a bit
while I sorted things out with the family. This was especially hard, as my mother’s
death was very unexpected.
Mother’s are the best . . . and my family and I still miss my mom enormously.
Still, with the help of friends, family, and ferret family, things are beginning to
get easier. You can be assured that all issues of the AFR for 2009 will still go
out. They will be a little delayed, but you won’t miss anything. The only change
we’ve made is to move the annual veterinary listing to the next issue in order to
get issue #2 out the door.
As we go forward, please keep in mind that we are always looking for contributions
from guest authors. The AFR is your magazine and we encourage you to be a part of
it. If there are topics you’d like to write about, please contact me at
firstname.lastname@example.org. We would be glad to consider your
submissions of photos, articles, or even funny ferret stories. We’d also welcome your suggestions
on topics you’d like to read about in the magazine.
Volume 19, Issue #2 is dedicated to my mom, Judy
