D is for... Dogs
We have three Dogs in my house. Fitting, I guess, as we also have three kids. (I like the number three, it would seem.) When Dog Number Three, the new Puppy, joined our household last March, I started to blog about her antics. Her cuteness. Her smallness. How she fit perfectly under my Desk while I worked on the edits for my book... the Ultimate Desk Accessory...
Different "Puppy Tales" on this blog, this post being the 50th one. About once a week, she Does something that I just have to Discuss, funny or painful (like all the books she's Devoured in the last year...)
But as the Little Dog grew, I swear she stayed cute. She just got all kinds of Big Cute instead of small cute.
When she could walk more than fifteen minutes at a time, she became an excellent hiking companion and we posted pictures of our beach and bike trail walks. She also lo-o-o-ves to Drive in the car, and became the subject of a whole Different post when she learned to open her own window. Which she Definitely Does. Incessantly. Especially on Drives to the beach...
But see how Delighted she is? The Dog is always happy. Always smiling. Always Delighted to be Dragged along on the next Daring adventure. Or the next crazy photo that I want to take of her.
...Okay, sometimes she's more smiley than others, but all in all a Delightful Dog.
Do you have a Dog? What's the best part of having a pet in your life? ...besides being able to blog about them ;-)
P.S. (yeah, I know you know it's not D. Deal with it.) Wish me luck at Bookclub tonight... I didn't back out yet. And I still Don't know what to Discuss...
Another P.S. Yesterday I was awarded a Powerful Women Writers Award from Deirdra - see it in the left hand column? If you click on the award it will take you to her beautiful website. I'm thankful and honored... and just love the connections that the A to Z Challenge is helping to connect.
