A dog will gaffle down just about anything!

My dog went outside the other day, shuffling around in the snow. She seems to like to rub her sides up against it, which is quite unusual for any mammal to do. Does she get cold? Does she get a brain freeze, like most of us do when eating ice cream way too fast? She just rolls and rolls, in the snow.

Then she went up a little ways, and dug a hole through the snow crust. Kept on digging, until she pawed something from underneath and started chewing. By the time we got to her, and tried to pull it out, it was too late. The crunch crunch had faded as we reached to try to pry it from her jaws. She had swallowed, something.

As a pet owner, you always try to do what is best for your pet. She is a well fed dog, and all. If a turkey would drop from the kitchen table, we are sure she would eat until she could not move. Then, try to hide it somewheres. This morning, the dog is fine. But, you always worry, that just maybe your pet may become sick from picking up a scrap from outside. People sometimes toss stuff, here and there also. A chicken bone, my parents would say, would always be bad for dogs. They could choke on it as it splinters. Quite understandable not to feed them any of that. But, our pooch is fine. Thank goodness. We cannot keep a short leash on her forever, and you cannot watch the dogs steps totally every where she goes. Animals.. What can you do.

On the twitter front, I know have 170 followers, and am following 200. I pretty much follow everyone who follows me. Have a good evening,  will be back laters... Till then..

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
