Wonderful Wednesday Personal Blog
Oh, my! I cannot believe how many Wednesdays I've missed this summer! I do have excuses . . .er, reasons. A full-length novel coming out by the end of the year (fingers crossed), a 5 novella contract, the first of which releases October 29, and a 4-book boxed set (with 3 other authors) coming out October 1. Add all the gardening care--all the plants must be watered daily here--and sometimes I'm not sure if I'm coming or going.
But it's been busier than that around here. Last weekend we added a new addition to our household. A big fellow--though he still has some weight to put on--by the name of Gunnar.
We thought long and hard about the decision to add another dog to the family. And it boiled down to two things. Freki needed a running buddy since she has outgrown Ben, and Gunnar needed a home.
He is a very kind dog. He eventually won Freki over (who had no intention of allowing a strange dog near her family) by ignoring her tantrum and showing a liking for the swimming pool, balls and a good romp.
Ben thinks he can run with Freki and Gunnar, though his short legs aren't quite up to the job. Of course, Dixie just ignores him. And Gunnar and Angus, the cat, get along just fine.
Freki still has her spot on the bed at night, and is surprisingly willing to share her toys. Tug-of-war is interesting when it happens in the house now. I have seen her simply take a toy away from Gunnar if she doesn't want him to have it. She still rules the house.
And, for those who are interested, Gunnar is the Norse word for 'warrior', as well as being a good German name. :-)
