The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves

 

The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba of The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.  This is a weekly meme where we can share news of the week and highlight new books received.

It finally cooled off!  I was able to take the puppers for a walkie, which they really enjoy. 

Yesterday, I discovered a strange dog in the front yard, in the pouring rain.  I didn’t know what to do with him!  His collar didn’t have any contact info, and he seemed like a nice enough fellow, so when he followed me into the garage, I snapped a leash on his collar, grabbed an umbrella, and took a walk around the neighborhood to see if I could find out where he lived (in my pjs!! – that tells you how much I love dogs!)

The first person I ran into didn’t know the dog, but he told me to hang on a second because his wife would.  Sure enough, she must be the resident dog whisperer because she knew the dog’s name, Oscar, and that he lived across the street from me.  Ironically enough, the neighbors across the street have bushes all along their fence line, so while I knew they had a dog, I didn’t know what it looked like.  Now I do.  They were very happy to see Oscar and were heading out to look for him.  A repairman left their back gate open, and that’s how he got out.  That was the extent of excitement for my week.

    At least they had a neighbor like you, or something might have happened to the dog. I couldn’t imagine by dogs getting loose. Our neighbors got loose and was picked up taken to the shelter, they can’t get it back either, it wasn’t the first time.
    Enjoy the new books. Happy reading.

    That cover for These Broken Stars – it’s gorgeous. I want a dress like that :) Science Fiction, though, stressed me out to no end. I might have to try it anyway.

    Enjoy your goodies, and happy reading :)

    @Jenea – Yeah, Dean saw the dog and asked by I had somebody else’s dog on my leash. I told him I didn’t know what else to do with him! It was raining and he was such a sweet guy. I’m so happy I found out where he lives.
