BLOG – GIFT DAY 321 :: a month of inspiration :: new leash on life

17 Nov

Today, in my month-long nod to inspiration, I share the love of books and dogs. 
As in the book, and movie and now the sequel of MUST LOVE DOGS.

Check out what Claire Cook, author, posted on her facebook page today:

Just in case you missed it over on my author page, Must Love Dogs is going to be a series!!! Book 2, Must Love Dogs: New Leash on Life, will be out in February and I can’t wait for you to read it! To celebrate, I’m giving away a signed and personalized copy of the original book (which contains an excerpt of Book 2) and a DVD of the movie, plus movie-watching treats for you and your dog (or cat!).

Claire, all I can say is… woof! woof!

Of course, by now, you know I get much inspiration from dogs. Ever since my first dog, Pepper, was sent to my room to protect me and take aware my nightmares from a scary movie that I stayed up way too late with the older kids to watch.

Pepper saved me from King Kong that night and slept on my bed every day after.

Until he could no longer make the jump up to the mattress. (That is exactly when I would get down on the floor with him just to give him a little comfort.)

I should have known my first marriage was destined for ruin. The man didn’t like dogs, didn’t want a dog, didn’t understand dogs.

For me to live without a dog in my life is like walking around without my shadow. I guess that’s why I’m so gaga about our dogs. I lived too long without one. I’m like a convert to a religion… the most outspoken, the most passionate, and probably the most annoying too.

But I can live with that.
I just can’t live without dogs.
Dog gone it.

Lovemore {fearless!}
