Welcome to the online, dust bunny-free cyber home of blogger and writer Joanne Brokaw, where nothing is organized, your cup of tea comes with a side of dog hair, and nobody cares if you track muddy paw prints across the kitchen floor. It's a mess .. but hey, life is messy business. That's what makes it fun!
What The Dog Said is here!
Life is messy business, and that's just fine with humor columnist Joanne Brokaw. In this collection of columns, join Joanne as she muses on life's ups, downs, and inbetweens, taking readers on a journey filled with laughter, dog hair, a few tears ... and even a few pieces penned by Bandit, her blogging Border Collie.
What The Dog Said is available now - click here to learn how you can purchase the book.

Snapshots from The Funny Farm
For many years, I covered entertainment, pop culture and religion for dozens of newspapers, magazines and websites in the U.S. and Canada. A few years ago, I detoured from that path to start studying and writing about dogs, history and my family tree. Through it all, the thing that's tied together my work has been my dogs. Whether I've been writing about them, writing with them lying on my feet, listening to them bark while I pen my next column, or wandering around a cemetery with them while I try to come up with story ideas, just about everything I do is influenced by animals. Here are some snapshots of life with the pups.

Visit my blog, Notes From The Funny Farm:
Humor columnist and award-winning freelance writer Joanne Brokaw spends her days dreaming of things she’d like to do but probably never will - like swimming with dolphins, cleaning the attic, and someday overcoming the trauma of elementary school picture day. She lives in Western NY with two dogs, a cat, six chickens and one very patient husband. Read her blog at www.NotesFromTheFunnyFarm.com.
My name is Bandit. I'm a dog. I do dog stuff and then I write about it. You can read my blog at www.MyNameisBandit.com
