Thank you everyone! Copper is a corgi, he was diagnosed with degenerative myelopathy (canine version of Lou Gehrig’s disease) almost two years ago. His spirit is sweet and his heart is strong but his body is slowing down. We are thrilled he gets to be Chet’s buddy of the month! He still absolutely LOVES adventures!!

Last day of the month – already? Good grief. So therefore last day of eligibility to be Chet’s December Friend. (Chet has a new friend every month.) See the FB page for details. Winner is the profile pic for the month (where Jet is now) and the human companion gets a signed copy of the latest Chet and Bernie novel – Of Mutts And Men.

Beginnings

On Sundays we’ve been doing beginnings – taking a look at the start of a Peter Abrahams novel in including those written under the Spencer Quinn pen name. How many of all those kids who’ve been out of school for so long have been reading books? I hope a lot, but I’m not so sure. Maybe they’d enjoy the Bowser and Birdie middle-grade series (available to adults with fake ID). For any of you who have kids in this situation, or know some who are, here’s the start of Woof, book one in the series.

Two humans stood outside my cage, a white-haired woman and a gum-chewing kid. Gum-chewing is one of the best sounds out there, and the smell’s not bad either. I liked the kid from the get-go.

They gazed in at me. I gazed out at them. The white-haired woman had blue eyes, washed out and watery. The kid’s eyes were a bright, clear blue, like the sky on a cloudless day. I hadn’t seen the sky in way too long.

“How about this one, Grammy?” the kid said.
