Our Story Corner

This is our place to keep stories and poems that we have found while surfing the internet.
Some of them are humorous, others are tributes, but many are sad, so make sure you've
got plenty of tissues handy. We don't claim ownership for any of them and when known,
the author is listed.

Sources for these stories are newsgroups, mailing lists and other sites on the internet. If
you know of anyone who is looking for a story like one of these, feel free to point them
here or just take the story, but if there is an author listed, please keep it with the text - it's
the courteous thing to do.

Do you know of a story or poem that should be included on this page? Do you know who
an author of some of the unattributed stories are? Are you the author of any of them and
wish them properly attributed or removed? Please e-mailCathy <mahle@connix.com>
and we'll make any corrections.

If you follow the LABSR4U mailing list then you probably know who Walt Zientek and his
best buddy Caleb are. One of Walt's claims to fame is that he is a 'Dog Story' author (with
help from Caleb) and we decided that he needed a page of his own. We convinced our
doghousemaster to make it happen, soooo... please visitCaleb's Corner, where you'll find
all of Walt's works and lots of other fun stuff.
