Adventures with Spottie

My dear friend Michele knows that when I get good news I do the “Happy Dance” and so when I got the RITA Nomination for THE LOST, she got me this adorable beagle! It seems apropos not only because of the Happy Dance, but because the hero’s dog in THE LOST is named Spottie. Why Spottie? Well, my hubby’s childhood dog was a beagle named Spotty. Of course, by the time I got to know Spotty, he looked more like a big ol’ bassett hound than a beagle. LOL! Anyway, my new Spottie is going to accompany me for the next two months until the night of the RITA ceremony! Look for some fun posts and things with Spottie in the coming months.

Actually, look for Spottie Does Bamboozle in the next few days!

Spottie Beagle

My husband dug out a photo of Spotty and I scanned it. It’s a little grainy due to age. You can see Spotty’s a beagle even though he’d put on some weight. He was a funny dog. Spotty ate pasta every night and would rub his ears in it if you did not put parmesan cheese on the pasta.

May you all have a blessed Memorial Day weekend and to all our miltary men, women and families, thank you for your service and your sacrifices.

How Clumsy Am I? Clumsier than a Skating Bulldog!

Yep, I am totally clumsy. I trip. I hope not to injure myself on the gym equipment, although big YEAH, I’ve lost 10 pounds in my quest to lose weight for the big RITA awards!!!

What else? If I bake, I burn. Myself that is. LOL! Luckily I am handy with a knife so watch out. All fingers accounted for after making dinner.

So I was rather impressed this Fun Friday by Tillman, the skatingboarding bull dog. Although I am normally a cat person, I love bulldogs, boxers, beagles and pit bulls (they get a bum rap). Did you know the original dog in the Our Gang/Little Rascals show was a pit bull terrier? Loved Petie!

Anyway, back to the bulldog that is not as clumsy as I am. Check him out on this skateboard. If you can’t see the video below, you can click here to watch!

Hope you all have a great weekend! I am off to Washington, D.C. this weekend for a conference. Hope to take some pictures to share with you!
