Happy Christmas to You All!

Hi there! It’s been a while, but it’s nice to see you again. I’m fine, but still recovering from my birthday celebrations on Monday. I’m 14 now – and people still call me a puppy! A cute puppy to be exact. I’ve asked mom not to reveal my real age. Why? Because I might start feeling old. And I can’t risk that.

Anyway, my birthday was great. I got yummy treats! Mango and papaya! I’m a fruit lover now, and that shows. I have much more energy than I used to when I was younger. I run when I take mom out, and I run when we come home. No tired jogging here. I think mom starts looking healthier too.

But I have a more serious message too. Thanks to my book, mom and I have been able to give quite a bit to the homeless doggies, cats, turtles, birds, hamsters and other animals in the shelter. Latest on Tuesday this week. Mom says she’s still in “red” on my book because we’ve given everything that has trickled in to my homeless friends. But I think that’s a good thing. It’s Christmas time and red is in fashion, right? And the homeless animals still need so much more. Why? Because they can’t go to work until they’ve been adopted! It’s simple as that.

You know what else is good about Christmas? It’s the time of giving! And my book is a great stocking stuffer. People of any age, particularly those who let their dogs or cats sleep on the bed, will love it. Mom told me that’s what the editorial review said. And kids who can read love it too. They’ve told me!

You’ll find my story (soft cover or Kindle) and customer reviews right here. Thanks for providing two gifts in one click! One for the stocking of someone you love,  and the other for the stocking at the Humane Society’s shelter. Because you love these animals too. I know.

Have a wonderful Christmas. Love,

Bumble

Busy, Busy – and Thank You!

Today has been a busy day! First thing in the morning I took mom for a long walk in the nature reserve. We saw many birds and I have to tell you that this time I couldn’t test if any of them could fly. You see, they didn’t walk on my path. All of them were in the marsh enjoying the morning sun.

Mom and I liked this big white bird! It was beautiful and I couldn’t help but wonder how it could be so sparkling white, not a single spot on its feathers. I guess it’s not playing around in the grass, like I do. Or maybe it’s taking multiple baths each day? I could never do that, but luckily my coat is brown.

Then we went for a car ride to get some food for me from the Smart Pet store. I love car rides, particularly when my ears flap hard in the wind! And I love to drive the car whenever mom lets me. And today she did! I felt like driving a Maserati, but of course it was mom’s old SUV.

When we came back home, there was a huge box at the front door! No, I was not a box of treats for me. It was something even better – a box of my books! You see mom and I have been invited to be contributors at an Open House at the pet hospital where I see my doctor.  And the nice girls in the reception. They liked my book so much that they want us to talk to the visitors about adopting a pet, and also to have my book for sale.

As soon as we opened the box, I inspected the books. I am so looking forward to the Open House where people can walk through the hospital and see all their facilities from the inside and also meet the nice staff. I have such fun memories from there…for example, when I did my magic invisibility trick for the girls! You can read all about that in my book.

I’m so happy we’ll have another opportunity to make money for the Humane Society shelter we support and for the hospital’s own charity that helps less fortunate pets.  My dream is becoming a reality, slowly but surely! I want to thank all friends who have already bought the book and I hope more of you will take five minutes do a review so that others will learn what you think!

And I promise to tell you all about the Open House later this month! Love, Bumble
