Spot and I just got back from our walk. He is such a gentleman--even though they were unloading cattle at the fairgrounds (?) he did not bark at all. Even though some obnoxious small dogs ran out of their yard and barked at us, Spot stood and looked at them, with his tail up, ready to make friends. Um...since he towered above them, they decided (a)not to risk a new friendship, and (b)to go back into their yard. Gotta love a guy with good manners, right?
Spot had his first haircut of the season yesterday. He looks even more handsome than usual! And I think he feels younger than his ten years. He is too excited about it to even let me take his picture, though. Sorry about that!
Therefore, I offer you daffodils. The ones in our yard are blooming, the day is as sunny as this picture, and we are just plain jazzed. Aren't we, Spot? Well, he's napping, but let me tell you, he's jazzed.
A couple of other things if you have time:
We have a guest at SisterWriters today. Go here to read about Toni V. Sweeney. Also, this is the Wednesday book blurb day, so if you'd like some reading suggestions, go to Barbara Vey's Publishers Weekly blog here.
Have a lovely day!
