Weather-wise, Business-wise, Puppy-wise and Otherwise

What an absolutely beautiful week!  The weather has been in the 70's all week with a bit of rain at night.  The grass is turning green and trees are blooming.

Mommy and Daddy spent the day Saturday at a writer's festival and book fair.  They hadn't participated in a few years and quickly found out that it had turned into mainly a writer's festival.

Mommy advised many people who wanted to be children's writers and they said they appreciated all her help.  Many people also complimented us on our quality books and said they were great.  That was nice.  Unfortunately we heard lots of people say they purposely didn't bring money so they wouldn't be tempted to buy anything - they were just gathering information.  Maybe Mommy should teach a class about how to be a children's writer!  She wrote an outline of helpful advise over a year ago and people seemed to appreciate it.

At the end of the day, Boomer! and I were very happy to see them.  We went outside to take care of business and play with our friends.  Our neighbor Hobie Baker had friends visiting.  There was another big dog named Bronson and two Yorkies, Miles and Scruffy.  They are little like me.  It was lots of fun!  We ran and barked - PERFECT!

When we were done we ate dinner.  We gobbled it up quickly.  Boomer! was so tired he slept until bedtime.  He woke up long enough to do our nighttime routine and go back to sleep.  What a wonderful weekend, especially for March!

What More Could You Ask For?

The weather has decided to welcome Spring with warmth and awesomeness!  I don't know if that's a real word, but it really fits.

The temps have been between the 60's and 70's all week.  No more snow or ice!  The ground is no longer mushy, so Boomer! and I can run, run, run!

We had a wonderful time visiting the library in Hastings, Minnesota.  We met some new friends and saw a few old ones, too.  It was great.  We read our new story "Rudy O'Tooty," ate cookies and sang our song.  It was fun, fun, fun!

Here are some pictures, if you want to take a look.  Enjoy and have a "Happy St. Patrick's Day!"

A Bit O'The Irish

What a crazy week!  Rudy O'Tooty is officially launched.  A Festive party was held at the Heritage Library in Lakeville on Monday March 5th.  The room was decorated with Shamrocks and lace tablecloths, nice Irish music and lots of goodies to eat.  A lot of people had some fun questions.  One I particularly liked was, "Does the real Rudy really wear a kilt?"  The next time I go to the Irish Fair, I will definitely be wearing a kilt - and maybe even have green hair!  The crowd joined in with our little sing-along of my new song, "Rudy O'Tooty."  It was quite fun!  I believe a good time was had by all.

Daddy did an excellent job reading the story.  The children were delightful.  And a little boy named Liam made a sign saying, "Rudy O'Tooty Books For Sale."  It was adorable.  Here is a slide show.  Take a look.  It's a lot of fun!  Share it with your friends.
