Hello, dear readers! I beg your indulgence while we have visits from children and grandchildren.
To keep you entertained and not waste your click in coming here, I moved the all time favorite posts up so they are just to the right -> -> ->

They are in order of popularity, and I updated and added some to the list. You can help me out by reading my Rescue! story and telling me if you think I should submit it to a writing contest.

I will post some photos of the adorableness going on here, but in the mean time, enjoy some stories!

hug your hounds


  1. Everything you write on the topic of rescue makes me sob hysterically, and things that make everyone sob hysterically tend to win writing contests, so I say go for it!

  2. Of course you should enter it.

  3. Enjoy your time with the kids. Enter, enter, enter!

  4. You are one of the most gifted writers we know, Patience! Enter!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  5. Enter!! Have a good visit with your family.


  6. Enjoy your guests and enter the story!

  7. Yes, Yes, Yes, do submit this wonderful story. Enjoy all the adorableness visiting you. My eyes are leaking so I think I'll go to bed now, it's way past my bedtime and Lady's getting antsy. I love all your stories.

  11. Patience,

    I had read the story when you first put it on your blog -- but that did not diminish in any way the lump in throat and flood of tears the second time around.

    Please enter the story -- you have such an enchanting way of writing. And win or lose, the story will enhance the universe of those who learn the importance of hugging their hounds. But of course you'll win!!

    Wirey love,

    Jake, Just Harry (and Joan)

  12. Yes, you should enter the story in the contest. (Please send a box of tissues with the copy)

  13. Thanks for posting the links so we can get our Patience fix in your absence. Mom wants me to tell you that RIGHT NOW as she types she is eating REGULAR pasta!!!!


Love your comments! Love them we do. Don't be bashful! Thank you for visiting :-)
