Sneak Peek

Queenie describes some pre-Christmas goings-on in RUFF VS. FLUFF (coming March 26 and now available for preorder – middle-grade but available to adults with fake ID):

“Arthur! No! Stop!”

That was Harmony. But too late. Anything the slightest bit unusual—like the sight of Elrod crawling out from under the tree—is enough to get Arthur going. It was all so, so predictable: Arthur’s sudden change of direction, ripping tufts of wool off Mom’s favorite rug with his clumsy claws; then his all-paws-off-the-ground-at-once sprint toward Elrod, the split log dangling out one side of his mouth; followed by a series of Arthur-type decisions, all customarily demented; and ending with the tree toppling down on Elrod, Harmony, Bro, and a pretty crystal flower vase, Mom’s favorite. But not on Arthur, who stood just outside the circle of destruction, his tail still wagging, although slower now, as though beginning to have doubts. I made a mental note concerning those tufts of rug wool, now readily available, then closed my eyes and settled into that nap, which was what I should have done from the start.

    Henry knows what Queenie is going to do with those tufts of wool. It involves biting and pulling and head shaking and repeat in a frenzy of wooly joy.
    Then Staff yelling.
    Which is why pure wool batting is stored in the garage. Far away from Henry. Before the garage it was kept in the back of the van. Sigh.
    Once, before I know the trouble with wool batting, Henry bit a big messy hole in the middle of a 108″ square wool batt. RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE.
    Oh sorry.
    You see what I mean about yelling…

    Dawson, Do you want me to order a Ruff vs Fluff for you. Signed from Eight Cousins in Falmouth MA?
    I can give it to you in June.

    Wooly joy! Oh, to be young again. You can get away with so much. You can also get away with a lot when your name begins with Ole. Take this morning for example. It would appear that the Giant found me sleeping on a brand new dog pillow that had thoughtfully and methodically been disembowled by someone who shall not be named. Did he get mad? No. He couldn’t. Why? Because my name begins with Ole and I am ole.

    If there was any wool batting around here,(outside of the house)it would be blown away for miles! The wind is blowing strong out of the Columbia River Gorge and Zoe and Murphy are glad for their leashes keeping them from blowing away! P.S. I don’t think I have seen wool batting but it must be a sturdier version of cotton batting, right?

    Iditarod 49 is over . 39 mushers finished and one was removed since he had a dog pass from pneumonia after he got to Nome. Victoria Hardwick got the Red Lantern. See you next year Iditarod.
