Paw Tracks Here and Abroad is a book for "children" ages 6 to 96! It chronicles the adventures of Snickers, a stray dog with a strong will to survive. When Snickers is adopted in Peoria, Illinois, she quickly becomes part of the family-but that doesn't keep her from trying to escape whenever the opportunity presents itself! Over her twenty-two long years as a beloved member of the Wilson family, Snickers moves across the country and halfway across the world, makes new friends, observes and engages in bizarre behaviors, and experiences the thrill of encountering other cultures. A Dog's Tale is Snickers' story, told from a dog's-eye view, about loyalty, nurturing, adoption, playtime, exercise, socialization, veterinarian care, nutrition, grooming, boarding, and aging. At Snickers' request, Paw Tracks and the author are proud supporters of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals(r). The ASPCA was established in 1866 as the first humane society in North America. Today it maintains programs that extend anticruelty and animal welfare missions across the country. The author believes that having animals in our lives makes the world a better place, and he and Snickers both believe the ASPCA makes the world a much better place for animals.

This guide was developed to provide aspiring observers a method they could apply to conduct their own searches for Minor Planets and Comets. With an increase in observations, this will provide a greater understanding of the world around us, and allow us to know more about the threats with in our solar system. If we can broaden the knowledge of detection by informing amateur astronomers as to how this can be done, the effectiveness of the efforts will increase substantially.
