Slip Sliding Away...

We're not "Working Class Dogs" for nut'in - Mom finally made us do a job. Lucy and I argued about it for awhile, but then we got the hang of the whole sled dog concept and toted the kids up and down the driveway on a sled until everyone was tired. It was a blast and the kiddos loved it the most. There was a lot of laughing going on, which makes us dogs wag our tails faster.

We're having a fabulous time with Beth, the amazing dog sitter, this week while Mom is hanging out with all those great kids in New England. She's been to Rye, Greenwich, New Canaan, Wilton, and Wayne PA. Those children are going crazy over our videos - oh yeah, and the books, too. Lucy and I like to watch those videos and bark at them and dance around doing beach blanket bingo moves like Annette Funicello. (Ok, I'll admit it - we like stardom on the silver screen, just as much as Lassie and Rin Tin Tin did I bet.)

"A Snow Day For Hannah" made it onto The Bookworm's top 100 books for 2012 - about 1/2 way down, below some cookbooks but above some national bestsellers - and so that was a fun thing that happened.

I missed wishing you a Happy New Year - so how about having a Happy MLK Day!

Love and lots of schussboom sled runs!
