Dog Show

Westminster Dog Show’s coming up, Bernie says. We’ll be glued to that. A dog show – not Westminster – is part of book 2 in the series, Thereby Hangs A Tail. That will be available who knows when. Book 1, Dog On It, isn’t even available yet. I can hardly remember any of it. Sometimes the human world goes so slow, then it speeds up for no reason and everyone gets frantic. What’s up with that? 

Tomorrow, guess what – my Marley and Me review! It’s solid in my mind now, no way I’ll ever forget.

Something’s nagging at the back of my mind – that ever happen to you? I’m so close to remembering! Right now we’re watching tennis on TV, me and Bernie, tennis from Australia, he says. Is that in the Valley? The Valley goes on practically forever. I don’t get tennis at all, but tennis balls are another story. Love ’em, and love playing fetch. I’m watching the ball go back and forth. In my younger days I might have started barking, excited by the idea of the ball popping out of the screen so I could snap it up. Now I know better.

“Chet! What are you barking about?”

Charlie came over last night. Have I mentioned Charlie? He’s great! Likes to ride around on my back. Do we have fun or what? Charlie’s Bernie’s kid, lives mostly with Leda since the divorce. But the point is, after dinner Charlie wanted to watch Marley and Me, and that made me remember what I was supposed to be doing, namely posting my review. Couldn’t remember much about the movie – no idea why, since I remember Hotel For Dogs real well, especially how Friday, the star of the picture, snapped up all that bacon – so it’s a good thing I saw it again. Now it’s fresh in my  mind and I’ll post about it any time now, maybe after my nap.

Now I remember! I was going to post about Marley and Me! I remember that now, no problem, and will never ever forget. The new problem is I don’t remember much about the movie, nothing, in fact, except where I watched it, which was my usual place, on the nice soft rug in front of the TV. While I watched I had a biscuit or two, or perhaps  more, from Rover and Co. Have I mentioned Simon something-or-other? What a guy! He owns Rover and Co. I was in their test kitchen once, one of the best days of my life. That story may or not be in Dog On It.

I’m in a pretty good mood right now, except for this feeling of a possible problem gnawing at me. And uh-oh, I seem to be chewing on the leg of this chair. I’ll try to stop.
