WE’VE GONE TO THE DOGS!


I have a new puppy!

Yes, I hear you out there, asking what in the world does this have to do with weddings or romance or even books. Bear with me. I’ll explain.

But first let me introduce Moki, a Jack-rat mix adopted from a kill shelter two weeks ago. Some time past, Melissa McClone told me about Petfinders and after our wonderful old rat terrier died, we decided to adopt a shelter dog. I searched for a while but when Moki’s sad little face appeared, (above photo) I knew he was for us. A little battered from mistreatment, but eager to love, Moki is now thriving.

That’s the thing about dogs-a lot of love and attention garner a pet owner an enormous return. Such is the case in my current Harlequin Romance, THE SNOW-KISSED BRIDE. (See, I told you I’d get around to the wedding and romance part.) The book’s heroine, Melody has two search and rescue dogs that she considers family. Ace and Chili play big roles in the book, so of course, when it comes time for the wedding, guess what two, loveable canines step up to do their part?

So, tell us, have you ever been to a wedding that included a pet? Or maybe you’ve read a book or seen a movie with a dog that stole the show?

One last thing, I have to know. How many of you have seen the new comedy movie, “Marley and Me”? Did you cry?

I haven't seen Marley and Me, but I read the book. And yes, I cried. Almost sobbed actually. But, it was still a good book and left on a light hearted and hopeful note.
As for seeing animals in weddings, I never have. I'm sure it would be fun, though!

I haven't seen it either. My son and his wife watched it and she sobbed so loud, my son got embarrassed! lol They warned me NOT to watch it since my old dog has been gone such a short time.

I haven't seen the movie, but I'm reading the book right now. The story really touches the heart. I'm laughing and crying my way through it. I just hope my books can touch readers in the same way. I'll be blogging here tomorrow.
