Sunday morning reading. I'll be interviewing Mira T. Lee about Everything is Beautiful this Thursday, March 1 at Belmont books in MA. Come see us!

tpixie Oh snap!! I missed Book Club today! I was racing home to join, but had the time zone mixed up ! Ugg! Rabbit Cake was such a great read!! I loved the characters! Elvis was a great voice- I loved her animal facts! I loved how everyone dealt with grief, healing. And it spurred me to make a Rabbit Cake for Easter for my grandson!! Thanks. So sorry to have messed up and missed you. Thanks for taking your time. 🐰📚🐰 2y

Sick as a dog today so I'm staying in bed and finishing some of the books I've read half of, but haven't finished. This one was pretty saccharine for me, but I admit I cried at the end... so I guess it won me over?

Someone here (hi @JanuarieTimewalker13 !) asked me about the dog Boomer is based on. Here is Harvey, the most wonderful dog who ever lived, and my inspiration for Boomer. I remember, on this walk in Alabama, an elderly couple stopped me to ask if my dog was smart enough to do their taxes. "Probably!" I said. He's the dog I thank in the acknowledgements... he died of cancer last fall. He was my best friend. ❤️.

Mariposa_Bookworm I'm so sorry for the loss of your great pup. He looks incredibly happy in this picture! 2y
anniehartnett @Mariposa_Bookworm thank you -- he *was* happy! He was found as a stray, and I think we both appreciated every day together. 2y
monkeygirlsmama Aww am so sorry he's gone. Such a heartbreaking loss, but at least you can treasure all those wonderful memories. ❤️❤️❤️ 2y

JanuarieTimewalker13 Oh, Harvey❤️ you beautiful soul!! Border collies are amazing...I lived with Teddie, a border collie for 1 1/2 years at a home of friends' (who are like family). That dog was so darn smart, and I swear was right by my side when I was sick with a virus or food poisoning and went to get his mom, bc he knew I was in bad shape. When I would dive in their pool he would follow me along the perimeter until he saw my head pop up. So protective, so sweet! (edited) 2y
JanuarieTimewalker13 What a treat that you put this photo up of Harvey!! Thank you for sharing him with us and I am loving the book...it is with me right now? PS, I actually wrote a poem in honor of Teddie after he passed in 2002...it was called "An ode to Teddie". Coincidentally, Teddie had a brother (golden retriever) named Boomer. (edited) 2y
anniehartnett @monkeygirlsmama yes thank you! I think about him every day. 2y
anniehartnett @JanuarieTimewalker13 ❤️❤️ border collies are indeed incredible. We have another BC mix now -- Willie. He's the dog you asked about, he's a little doll. Thanks for reading RC!! 🐰🐰🐶 2y

Really loving Goodbye Vitamin on audio, but didn't realize it was only 4.5 hours long! Need more audiobooks to get me through the next 11 weeks of training... any suggestions? (I generally prefer 1st person narrators for audiobooks...just because they are easier to follow when I'm running at breakneck speed 😉)
