Me taking notes for our novel so Mama can translate and type them up for me.

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!

Post-Op…

Groggy me with stitches by my nose.

Hewooowoooowoooo all my wonderful blog friends! I’m sorry this is not a Haiku, but my brain is all foggy still and I am too tired to be poetic toowoowoooo. I just wanted to let you all know that the operation went well. I have a few stitches that will come out in a couple of weeks and we’ll get the biopsy results next week.

It was very traumatic to be without my Mama and my Nalle a whole day. What a nightmare! But now I am home next to my Mama, and my sistah is so happy to see me! I am really so, so groggy so I have to go to sleep now. Thank you everyone for all your well-wishes and love.

Wuvyooowooowoooooo! Ku

Guest Blogger: Most Beautiful Swami…

Ku bestowing blogging privileges to most beautiful me!

Hello to all students, seekers, and readers out there. I am Shri Swami Sattvapurrrrrananda, but my family calls me Zoe, which means Life, which I AM. I AM also very beautiful and am referred to also as a lioness princess puppy cat. Yes, you heard that right. I was raised by a Husky, so I believe that I am part snow pup. I heard that the youngest member of our pack, little sistah Nalle, got to be a butt-in blogger, so I insisted that I should have the privilege to be a guest blogger since I am the oldest member of our pack (besides Mama of course). I will be twelve in a few weeks, but I don’t look a day older than two! I AM beautiful!

As some of you already know, I AM also the esteemed author of the book, Daily Yoga for a Happy and Healthy Cat. It is the last and only book you (humans, pups, all sentient beings, and especially felines) will ever need to read to be as enlightened, free, youthful, healthy, happy, and as beautiful as me!

Me working hard at my yoga practice!

As you can see, I AM truly very, very beautiful! And it is very important that others tell me how beautiful I AM on a regular basis. It helps others to move past their egos to acknowledge how beautiful they, their lives, and everyone around them are, especially me because I AM.

May you all find peace and bliss within, and have a relaxing day! Me-Om!

As B.K.S. Iyengar said: If one stretches completely, one relaxes completely. Look at a cat, a master of stretching and a master of relaxation.
