Hurricane: The Golden Retriever

Happy Monday everyone. 
In spite of Mom telling me I needed a job last week,  I decided to let bygones be bygones (my new word for the week
meaning: something past).  I gave her permission to go on a very exciting meet and greet on February 18, 2012.

OMC/OMD Mom meet for the very first time one of our blogging furiends, Ms. Tracy click here to visit her blog, Thinking Spot.  She has a link there to Amazon, should you want your very own copy of Hurricane's book.  Currently, Hurricane is on hiatus from blogging.  All of his words are being evaluated by a literary agent. WTG Hurricane!!

In the picture below I'm reading some smell mail from Hurricane.

Mom was so excited to meet Ms. Tracy and her family.  They live about 20 miles from us.  This is Ms Tracy signing our very own book about Hurricane.  Hurricane was unable to attend the gala due to a previously scheduled nap in a sunpuddle.

 Not only is Ms. Tracy an author, she is a wife, Mom to one two- legger and two-four leggers, Hurricane and Angel-Kitty.  AK and I  kind of look alike.  Ms Tracy is also an elementary school teacher here in Wake County. 
This is Ms. Tracy very handsome son, Nicholas, stamping our book with Hurricane's very own paw stamp
 Mom said it was a gorgeous day for an outing at the North Hills Bookery, a locally own bookstore. She thanks Mr. Finch for hosting this event at his beautiful new store. Mom said she looks forward to more visits with you.
 Ms. Tracy's hubby, Mr. Scott, set up a very cute arrangement of stuffed Goldens, pictures of Hurricane as a pup, and a box for a drawing. 
 Mom was very excited to show me what Ms. Tracy wrote in our book
 My favorite chapter in the book is titled
"My Kitty-Brothers"!! MOL
Hurricane you are my kind of dog!
Ms. Tracy I apologize if Mom talked your ears off  but
at least mine and Dad's got a rest while she was with you.
Good luck with your book.

  2. Wow, what a wonderful trip your mum had. That looks like a lovely bookshop :)xx

  3. Madi, that is very exciting. Mommy and I are going to check it out. I love books. I am also glad you worked out things with your Mom. The Moms can be very difficult at times, but in the long run they are the best, so we have to be patient with them when they go a little wonky.
