Oh Henry! And Hannah Stole a Sconi…

Mom’s shipping me off to the farm next week to meet Henry. I’m not sure what that means, but she says I’ll have fun playing with Henry and then maybe I’ll have puppies this summer. Mothers Day is coming up this weekend and so maybe some of you can lend words of advice. I don’t know much about any of this maternal urge stuff.

Mom went and bought me this silly outfit at Goodwill so that I could be a bride first with Henry. (Grandma taught her to do strange stuff like this when Mom was a kid.) But guess what, when Mom got this little ‘bridal’ outfit home she saw on the tag that it was really from Fredericks of Hollywood - yee hee! (She got a big laugh out of that.)

Maybe we’ll write a book about these puppies when they arrive. That would be a fun one, although Mom really hopes she doesn’t have to start explaining birds and bees to kids. I think I’ll be a good mom, but Lucy might get a little jealous of all this and so we’ll all have to be really nice to her this summer.

Grandma thought there should be a royal wedding with Henry the 9th. As long as it’s not the Henry the 8th I’m cool – that guy was a scoundral and lots of heads rolled ‘cause of him! I’m sensing I may really need a Pre-pup agreement…

Now this crazy great aunt of mine has sent me some booties and another lady wants to know what to wear to the royal wedding. My relatives are nuts!

We had a fun reading at Barnes and Noble on Colorado Blvd last month on a snowy day. The people from Reading Partners Colorado invited us. The lady at Barnes and Noble was super nice and said we could come back in the Fall again, because people liked us so much.

However, when Dad, the dog handler, was looking the other way and we were standing right next to a table of fabulous pastries, I finagled my way out of my harness and stole a scone and snarfed it down with Lucy. Everyone was a little startled, but it was over in an instant and we cleaned up all the crumbs…we are chow hounds after all! Will work for food!

We've also been reading at a bunch of schools this winter - the kids are all great and I love hanging out with them on snowy mornings. And Mom's going to the Bernese Mountain Dog Specialty Show which is in Loveland, CO this year to sign books on Friday May 17 & Sat May 18 (but I can't go 'cuz I'm going to be hanging out with Henry - tee hee).

Happy Mothers Day!
Love Hannah
