The digital version of The Sound And The Furry is on sale for $1.99! You can find that under the seat in your car. Not sure how long the sale lasts. Here’s a little passage from page 93 where Chet (maybe 450,000 words into the series) learns something of interest:

The wiry dude squinted down at Bernie. Then he laughed. “You’re not from around here.”

“True,” said Bernie.

“Where you from?”


Ha! We were from Arizona? I’d wondered about that.

    Good morning everyone!
    Today’s post made us think about how many words on average are on each page in a novel. There has to be someway to figure it out.

    I wondered about that too, Chet! Heh!

    Good afternoon to all!

    We have been busy here on This Side of the Bridge. Last week, Rio Jr. Crossed the Bridge. For our Lady and Giant it was a sudden passing —-not much gets by the Bridge —- but we were prepped for Jr. it was so good to see him again. After we welcomed him with wags and woofs, he was enrolled in Remedial Eyebrows for Beginners taught by Professor Wookie. They haven’t emerged from the classroom, yet. But, a lot of pizza gets delivered to that classroom. No doubt, our boy is impressing Wookie with his eyebrow related knowledge.

    In the middle of the night last night, Belle Starr was also greeted at the Bridge. We escorted her on her journey. She was beside herself to see Luna. Luna gave her nuzzles and a look that expressed all her love. It’s not too unlike to look Luna uses to express all her disappointment. They are very similar, those looks. For all her 14 years, Belle Starr was a delight of our Lady. She told the Giant that the house feels far to still and far too empty today.

    Jr. and Belle are Restored to Prime. Our Lady wants to thank you for humoring them all these years.

    “It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life, gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are.”


    Glad Rio Jr and Belle Star had a loving journey and were welcomed by friends.

    I still cry I was not there for Caesar. I only hope Goliath, Ramses and Candy found him and assured him that I still love him and didn’t abandon him. As they approach the bridge, I ask each one to be sure to find Caesar and tell him.

    After over 25 years of living and sleeping with dogs, I can’t bear an empty, quiet house. That is how Diana came to me so soon after Ramses crossed. While Cuppy and Mitzi crossed almost 50 years ago, I’m hoping they found the younger pack and welcomed them in.

    I am so sorry for your loss.

    Mlaiuppa, rest assured that when our four legged cross the bridge, they will be greeted by family and friends. Dogs are pack animals after all and will be together for ever and ever. I just hope that they let us back into the pack when we go.

    Thieves! I am so sorry to hear this news. Belle Starr…SOB! My heart is broken.

    Whenever I look at the night sky, I am sure Belle Starr will be the brightest and most sparkly…SOB!

    Thieves: So that’s why the northern lights were a blazing last night. Rest in glitter dear Belle Starr and make sure Rio Jr. stays in line. Mama Luna will take care of all that, I’m sure, with just one look. Sad for us down here on earth but happy you’re restored to prime.

    Mlaiuppa. I love the quote at the beginning of your post. It really says it very well. Although it does bring to mind one of my favorite quotes from Caroline Knapp: “Before you get a dog, you can’t quite imagine what living with one might be like; afterward, you can’t imagine living any other way.” (From her book Pack of Two)

    Belle Starr and Rio Junior. You will both be missed. But as far as eyebrows go, Junior is in very good paws with Wookie and an assist as well from Teddy

    I am so sorry about Rio Jr and Belle Starr! What will we all do without Belle’s insistence on glitter and sparkle? I am sure Snowbella and the Giant are feeling the loss tremendously. Hugs to both of them❤️!
