I have been such a bad blogger! + photos.

I have two giant work deadlines I've been working toward, both not done and both hitting today, so no novel writing and no blogging

Wait! Ooops! What am I doing here? Just posting photos. *coughbloggingcough*. Here's husband Mark and me and the puppy Ben who lives downstairs.  He's our landlords' puppy, a labradoodle. Isn't he the cutest boy ever? Here I am experiencing his sharp little shark-teeth.

We have this setup where I walk, or actually sprint around the neighborhood with Ben twice a day for a break on rent, because the landlords are older and can't run.  It's totally fun and gets me away from the computer.

I think it ends up being a mile of high speed sprinting every day--I should probably be paying the puppy as a personal trainer. Even though I'm a jogger, I have no occasions in life where I actually run as fast as I can. That seems weird. 

When Mark comes, he runs ahead and Ben and I chase him. It's quite fun. 

Reading update
 I'm currently reading Happy Endings by LB Gregg and Scandal by Carolyn Jewel and just loving them. I have tons to say about both of them.  Have had many great moments of last night's reading I am dying to talk about.  

I started Happy Endings first, so I'll talk about it first, hopefully tomorrow! This interesting thing on the alpha first person POV, which I am digging. OMG what am I doing here? I have to get back to work.

Look at those paws! Dinner plate sized! My brother has a labradoodle named Kirby who is ginormous, and so sweet. And rotten.

Get back to work, CJ!

I love labradoodles! They don't shed, unlike my husky ;) I actually housed one for a couple months until he was placed in a good home and they're the sweetest dogs! Too cute!

That looks like the sweetest dog ever! So cute! And what an awesome deal to get a break on rent for running with their dog!? :)

What happened?

She was here, now she's... gone!











[good to see you fly past, Carolyn!]

Barbara said...

Hey Carolyn!! You know what's weird? I've never heard of a labradoodle but earlier tonight I was driving and the lady in front of me had a bumper sticker that said "I Love My Labradoodle", lol.

Cute dog!

Renee said...

I wish my lab had some doodle --er, poodle. That no shed thing sounds great. 100lbs of dog = lots of hair.

Can't wait to read some "great moments" for Scandal and Happy Ending! :-)

labradoodle's are so cute. And both of the books you are reading are fab. Can't wait to hear your thoughts on them. :)
