Shaughnessy says that Miss Chanel does need to wear goggles to protect her eyes because she has cataracts, and wears sweaters outdoors in the winter for warmth and tee-shirts in the summer.  She certainly is stylish!

    Greetings from Sydney, Australia.

    The South Korean citizen reporters’ journal OhmyNewsInternational has published a story I wrote about the world’s oldest dog, an Australian sheepdog which lived in Rochester, Victoria (130 miles north of Melbourne).


    You are welcome to copy it.

    Cheers, Eric.
