As I picked myself up and shook the slushy mud off of me and all over the lady and the inside of her open car, my fear and shock turned into excitement. It was Beast! He was just as excited and was standing on the lady licking her face. It turns out Beast knows her. She is his puppy sitter! Lucky Beast gets to be watched by the lady with the bottomless Mary Poppins purse. Was she really Mary Poppins?!

She was completely covered in mud, but happy to see Beast. Oh Dog, oh Dog! She opened up her purse and gave us some treats. Then she pulled out three large towels and a big water bottle to wipe us all off. But, ruh-roh, what happened to her phone? We all searched through the slush, and finally found it completely ruined by the mud!

Then the lady said, “Beast and Petey, you need to show me what is happening. I sense trouble, and now we can’t call for help.” Though completely exhausted we started to lead the lady back towards the ravine. As we did, she took out a flashlight and some string and scissors. She then tied bows on the tree branches so we could find our way back to the car. Wow, she’s a smart lady! Maybe if Beast’s mom becomes my mom this lady will be my puppy sitter too……..

My mind was drifting off into fantasy again, so before I knew it we were at the top of the ravine. Beast and I barked to let our owners know we were back, and the lady shined the flashlight too. They had all fallen into a deep sleep in the icy cold ravine. They all finally woke up, even my owner. Whew! no concussion after that third knock-out!

“Does anyone have a cell phone or radio?” the lady asked. Everyone started fumbling around, trying to find one that was still charged. Maybe the lady has a spare battery in that magical purse? I hope we get help soon. We were all so, so, so tired…

Tomorrow’s Chapter will be by My Mini Pet Pig. There are a couple of spots still left if you want to join in the pawesome fun!

Writing a novel

Is a big task for a pup

Who’s just a poet

 

Jointly we write a novel

Pets over at Rocco’s House

 

 

 

Wooooowooooo! November is NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). Rocco over at Rocco’s House had the pawesome idea to join forces with other pet bloggers to write our own novel! He is so smart. We pets have so much to do like go for walks, ask for treats, play, and take naps that it just wouldn’t be possible for us to meet the NaNoWriMo challenge of 50,000 words in the month or 2,000 words per day! So we are supporting each other in this writing project. Woooowooooo!

I know I am a published author with my autobiography and I am a poet, but this is my first try at fiction, so I hope you like it! Here are the first six authors and chapters:

  1.  Rocco
  2.  Bongo
  3.  Haley and Zaphod
  4.  Easy Rider
  5.  My Rotten Dogs
  6. Sophie Doodle

And here’s my chapter:

I hopped over the tree tugging the mystery lady with me. “Wait, Petey!” she screamed as she picked herself up off the ground but still clenching tight to my collar. She then pulled another treat out of her Mary Poppins purse. It was delicious, but by now I was wary of her. And then before I could finish wolfing down my treat she slapped a choke collar and leash on me! She had those in her purse too?! What else is in there?

She had to drag me through the woods. By now it was very dark, but at least the moon was full. I would see drag marks on the forest floor, and with them the scent of my owner! Oh Dog! What has this lady done to my owner! She must be taking me to him, so I will play along until I can rescue him. Maybe this way she’ll give me more treats too!

The wind began to pick up making the branches on the trees creak and the leaves rustle. The forest sounded like it was alive! The lady seemed scared of the sounds, and would jump and tug on the choke collar. Unfortunately she forgot all about the treats in her bottomless purse.

Then, all of a sudden, we reached a very old run-down cabin. Finally the lady stood still for a moment so I could go potty! I decided to pee on her leg, which made her scream like a Banshee. A man then opened the cabin door. With the light shining behind him, all I could see was a black silhouette. I could still smell the scent of my owner, but this man smelled like something else…pizza!

Check out the next chapter tomorrow at Oh My Shih Tzu!
