A pup on the hunt
Looking for dinosaur bones
May have to dig to China
Wooohooowooooo Efurrybuddy! I’ve been furry busy in my retirement from being a busy busy author! I’ve been trying lots of new things, and this week on an impulse I decided to become a paleontologist (that’s a dinosaur archaeologist!). I am working furry furry hard on the hunt fur monstrous dinosaur bones. Mama says those may be the only bones strong enough to hold up to my Malamute jaws. Here’s what I have accomplished so far with my intensive labor:
A sweet Malamute
My British sisfur-in-web
Wrote about my book!
Thank youwoowoooooo my Malamute sisfur from another mother (as she says) who lives across the pond Misaki! Much wuvwuvwuv to youwoowooooooo!

Training to become a nurse
But in the meantime
She went to a casting call
And now’s a super model!
Wooooowoooooooo Efurrybuddy! This is one of my in retirement special bloggy posts. And you were all worried you’d never hear from us. A couple of weeks ago, Mama heard about a casting call at a local photographer’s, so she took me and Nalle fur Nalle to become a super model just like me! Well, this morning at the coffee shop, we discovered that Nalle made the cut! Wooohooowoooooo! Here’s her modeling debut:
It’s time to move on
To do more important things
It’s been lots of fun
As a retired author
I will get to hike lots more!
From Mama: Hi everyone and efurryone! Ku has decided that he is ready to retire from being a writer and blogger. It has been lots of fun, and we will visit all of you once in a while because you have given us so many smiles and giggles. We thank you all for the joy you and your pets have filled in our hearts. Ku wants to have more time to go hiking, and we are all ready for new adventures.
Ku’s and his sisfur Swami Zoe’s books will still be available for purchase to support animal rescue, and the blogs will remain as websites. I spent a good 6 months working to promote them here and in many other ways, and have learned more than I could have imagined about self-publishing (I have other books too, click here), marketing, etc. and especially what does not work. However, the time I have to work to earn money is very limited (as in needing a very flexible or work-at-home schedule) given that I am helping care for my mother, who has Alzheimer’s among other mental issues, and the house. I have here and there found some freelance work (though no one seems to want to pay writers much, if anything).
I have much bigger book projects that I am working on, that are much better candidates for publishers, and am now focusing on building my spiritual counseling/life coaching/healing practice. Both of these things, writing and helping others, is my passion and my greatest skills, and they need as much time as I can give to them now. I will still be around the blogosphere as my main blog, Through the Peacock’s Eyes, is the online aspect of all that I have been building over the the past year plus.

From Ku: Efurrybuddy, please don’t furget about me. I won’t furget you, and will
beg ask Mama clicky-fingers secretary nicely to visit your bloggies from time to time. It’s been lots of fun, but time fur new adventures! Much wuvwuvwuv and woooohooooowooooooooooo! xoxoxo, Kuruk Babybear
p.s. Maybe I will occasionally compose a Haiku in retirement. You never know! Woooowoooooo!
To promote my pawesome book
To help animals
But sales are barely there
And we are getting poorer
Hi Efurrybuddy, Me and Mama have been having serious discussions. You see, we are overly giving souls, and have spent hundreds of hours blogging, emailing, going places, and talking to people to market and promote my book to raise awareness and money to donate to animal rescue. We thank those who have bought my book and who have tweeted, re-blogged, etc.!!!
However, sales are so so so so slow (only 7 so far in the last 3 months – and we did print-on-demand self-publishing so royalties are $2 or less per book) that we are considering shutting down. Though we need the money, we have committed to donating 50% of sales. We made our first donation before even covering costs, which we have now just barely done. I told Mama that if this is not going anywhere then we could stop so she could spend more time looking for income and building her spiritual counseling practice (Astrology and Tarot/Oracle Readings - she is furry furry good!), which she juggles around caring fur the Grandma who has Alzheimer’s and doing all the housekeeping fur the Grand Paw.
Sorry fur the sad-ish post, but we are feeling furry discouraged lately and need to re-assess efurrything so that we do not go hungry (this is not an exaggeration either).

Originally posted on DID I SAY THAT OUT LOUD:
I spent some time laying on the porch yesterday with my doggies, I was watching Forrest as he lay there face on his front paws just watching the bush and waiting for any signs of activity.
A rabbit or perhaps a Kangaroo.. there was nothing and as he lay there I took advantage of his stillness to snap some pictures of his eyes.. he has the most soulful brown eyes.
When I put the pictures on my computer I was so amazed to see that the driveway the bush and the sky are all reflected in his beautiful eyes…indeed I got to see the world through Forrest’s eyes and am so glad I have this wonderful picture to always remind me that we are not so different … a summer’s day is the same to me as it is to my pup..
Gentle Mister Bill
A kind sweet doggie walker
And treat dispenser
Can you see all the snow pups? Sometimes we all meet at the doggie park, but this time we ran into Mister Bill, Blazer, Bowie, Molly, and Troika on our walk. Mister Bill always has treats! Wooooooooowooooooooooooo!
