For Wookie

“This one’s for Wookie,” says Spence.

“He means a lot to this blog,” says Admin.

“Let’s have a thought for Wookie,” says Spence.

We’re all quiet for a moment. I’m quiet anyway, on account of I’m pretty much napping at the moment. Still a bit sleepy from our adventures up in the high country. And all that lovely fresh water! It’s all in The Dog Who Knew Too Much, except for the forgotten parts.

“That hidden joke in Quacky Baseball?” Spence says. “It may have been oversold a bit.”

“You’re welcome to your opinion,” says Admin.


Welcome to the drummer, Tatto the Wonder Dog, chauffeur and rider. And ocean lover!


Not Long Until Opening Day. Meanwhile There’s …

Quacky Baseball

“Should we post the cover of Quacky Baseball?” Admin says. “It’s coming out February 22.”

“Why not?” says Spence. “I read it, by the way.”


“Love the inside joke you put in there. Maybe we should run a contest about it.”

“Heh-heh, as someone would say.”

Chez Albie Rose (Revised)


June 8th, 2010 Posted 8:00 am

Zoom! Up and over! There’s really nothing like a good high leap to make you feel tip-top. I landed lightly on the other side of Albie Rose’s gate, and what did I find right away? A tennis ball. I was just snapping it up when I heard a loud thump. I looked around and there was Bernie, also on this side of the gate, but lying on the ground, a big rip in his pants and kind of groaning. I dropped the tennis ball right away, went over and licked his face.

“Must have slightly misjudged something or other,” he said, and popped right up. And if not popping right up he at least got to his feet, leaning on me a bit. We’re a good team, me and Bernie. We turned and headed up toward Albie Rose’s house. No one around, but the front door was open.

Note from Admin: Quacky Baseball is a picture book written by PA and illustrated by Frank Morrison. It comes out Opening Day, 2011. PA is now writing a new middle-grade series (not Ingrid), set in NYC and slightly touched by the paranormal.

And don’t miss great puppy pics in yesterday’s comments section!
