And here’s today’s chapter…

There were eight look-a-likes in all! Who were they and what were they all doing in the forest? Before I could bark, the alpha dog stepped right up to my nose and growled. My instinct took over and I growled back, the fiercest, deepest growl I’ve ever growled!

This frightened all of them and they cowered back a few feet. “Who are you?” the alpha dog asked.

“My name is Marvin,” I said, “and I want to live free like my ancestors! I am part Siberian Husky so I think I can figure out how to hunt and make a cozy den in the ground.”

One of the others, a cute female, spoke up, “We all are out here on our own too. We’ve formed our own pack and I’d be delighted if you joined us. My name is Bella and I’m the real Alpha, just like our ancestors had a female as the alpha of their packs. Grumpy here is my little brother. He’s only two and doesn’t know how to behave yet.” As she gave a piercing look towards Grumpy.

Oh pup, my very own pack! We decided to call ourselves the K9 Gang since there were now 9 of us. It was getting late, and we all fell fast asleep. I was in the middle of a dream about me and Bella romping through a field of wildflowers when I was shaken awake. Efurrybuddy jumped up startled, but the shaking didn’t stop. It was an EARTHQUAKE! Terrified we all scattered into the forest and when everything settled I was once again alone.

Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo” I howled out like my ancestors, and I waited fur a response…

Next chapter will be by Kari!

NaNoWoofMo is Here Again!

I’m not just a poet and author, I’m a novelist tooowoowooooo!

Wooohoooowooooo Efurrybuddy! It’s November and that means it’s NaNoWoofMo – National Novel Wooofing (or Woooo-ing if you’re a snow pup like me!) Month! And just like last year I am pawticipating in Rocco’s round robin bloggy a novel around the bloggy world. WOL! That means any pet blogger (you don’t have to be a pup) can pawticipate by writing a chapter/post fur one day of the month. He still needs lots of sign-ups so clicky on over to Rocco’s House here to add yourself to the list and to read the first entry into our pet novel!

Here is the next chapter…

I missed my master, but I was also happy to be away from his son. A dog is a pawesome people-energy detector. Now as I detect my way around my new strange surroundings with my nose…sniffs the air…BACON! The drool-inducing scent was wafting around in the breeze which made it hard to figure out what direction it was coming from. Oh pup, was I getting hungry!

Off in the distance I could see a little red farm house. I knew bacon came from frying pans in kitchens, so that had to be the source. I headed towards the house leaving a trail of pee-mail just in case I needed to find my way back. It didn’t take long to reach the farmhouse, but as I approached I saw that it was surrounded by a wire fence. “What should I do?” I thought.

Next chapter will be by Hailey and Zaphod! All entries will be listed over at Rocco’s House here!

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!

Chapter 17:

I wiggled and giggled, but that only made the choke collar choke me. There was nothing I could do and it was getting cold sitting there in the snow. For once I wished I were a big fluffy Alaskan Malamute! Just as I was about to give up hope, I heard the officers shouting in the distance. The snow had disoriented Beast only temporarily, and he was now leading the officers and Hissie’s mom back towards the east, and to me!

I barked as loud as I could so they could find me. Oh Dog, was I glad to see them! They took the nasty collar off of me, freeing me from the tree. The smart lady officer picked me up and wrapped me in her jacket to warm me up. Once I stopped shivering, she asked me to lead us to my owner, and off I dashed!

But we were not alone! The silly human officers seemed unaware that running alongside us through the trees were the coyotes with chicken feathers all over their faces. Were they looking for another meal? I stayed close to Beast this time. He could protect me. Then the wise owl returned with two rats in its talons, and distracting them lead the coyotes off in the opposite direction. Whew! Thank you wise owl!

Back in the ravine, Beast’s mom tried to clean off the blood from Petey’s owner’s face using some tissues she had in her pocket and saliva. (Moms!) She could see that it was just a few cuts above his eye and on his chin. It was a strong manly chin with a movie star dimple in the middle. The man began to gain consciousness, and when he opened his eyes, Beast’s mom was met with the most radiant emerald green eyes she had ever seen, besides her own of course. After a few moments of mutually being mesmerized in each other’s eyes, they heard rustling and what sounded like large creatures trashing through the forest. They hugged each other close shivering in fear!

NaNoWriMo!

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!
