Girls Write Out
Thursday, March 07, 2013

I'm so happy to have finished my third Smitten novella. I've been so sick, I wondered if I'd ever get it done, but God is faithful! He helped me and now it's finished.

We have a cat and a dog. The cat was my mom's which we took on a temporary basis and somehow ended up keeping her. At any rate, she's my hubby's pet.  The dog, Latte, is mine. Patches, our cat, could care less when I walk into the room. Latte throws a party if I get the mail and come back in the house.

In the picture above, if you look real closely, you can see Latte. She was under my blanket and sat up. I laughed and laughed and she just sat there, so I took a picture. It was hilarious! That's a dog.

Do you think our cat would have held still for that? No way.

I'm not saying cats are bad. I'm just saying they're very different from a dog. Okay, maybe it's cause I've been sick, I want to be pampered. Patches just wants me to keep her seat warm. Latte is pure bouncy joy.  Patches doesn't want to be bothered with anything, unless of course it's feeding time. Then she's all purrs and cuddles.

Whether cat or dog, how could we live without our pets? They bring joy to our lives and a special company that makes loneliness flee.

Wouldn't you agree?

We could all take lessons from you on getting things done! Elle is trying to talk me into a cat. I'm a dog person.

Oh, that's right, dogs rule, cats drool. We have one cat who drools any time we pet him, and unfortunately, he's very affectionate. The other three have taken up his bad habits, and if they get too comfy on my lap and I pet them too much, there goes my shirt.

Di, great job on finishing the book. I feel like a sloth. I haven't even completed my proposal!

I'm a dog lover myself, and hope it's okay if I post this link to my memoir about dogs. It's free on march 20 and 21. I love Girls Write Out and thanks for all you do for writers!

Totally a dog lover. I've always had one and they totally can bring you total joy! Blake (my 1 1/2 year old dachsund) keeps me on my toes. He's still very much still in the puppy stage and is very energetic! I wish I had a 10th of his energy! But he keeps me going and I don't know what I'd do without him sometimes.
