Fall is my favorite!

Posted by GerrysMom in Uncategorized    

Mom thinks it’s funny that Fall is my favorite month.  It might be, except she’s one to talk – she falls way more than I do!  Two leggers. Sheesh.

When Mom and I first met, in fact, I showed her how much I liked Autumn.  I was at the shelter at the time.  I didn’t have any toys of my own there.  If you’ve seen my early blogs, you know that I need a buddy to take with me on my walks!  So, without a toy, I would make do with a nice smelling leaf and call it Buddy, and carry it along.   I still do from time to time –

By the way, I promised a book report on The Wooden Mile, by Chris Mould after we heard about it on our summer vacation to Virginia Beach.  Another family of vacationers told us they were reading it and that it had three-legged dogs in it and the boys had asked their mom to explain what it looked like when the author wrote, “The dog trundled by awkwardly on its three legs.”  And then they found a real-live three legged dog next door – me!  I don’t think I did a very good job of showing them any awkward trundling.  But back to the book –

I did like it.  It was suspenseful and mysterious and the main boy character was very brave.  However, I didn’t like how the three-legged dog characters were portrayed.  You should know that they were very minor characters, which isn’t necessarily bad, but I mention it so that you don’t mistake it for a story about three-legged dogs.  Even though they were minor characters, they didn’t think they should be such passive victims.  But you know, this book had pirates in it too, and that got me thinking about Captain Jack.  Now that would be a great adventure story – Captain Jack the Tripawd Swashbuckler!

I hope you all are having a marvelous Autumn and reading great books.
