    You really are mouthy, and I take after you!!


  8. Hey, Mom. Way to go. That's impressive. Can't wait for the book.
    I don't want to win the poop candle. Really.

  9. Congratulations on those great numbers! But we readers knew it all along...

  10. That's great Patience! But as a long time reader, it does not surprise me at all! As I told you in my first ever comment, you are a very gifted and talented writer!

    I feel I MUST have the poop candle. It would be nice to pick up a piece of poop that is not quite so,um,poopy scented. (Tell me this is so and they didn't give it poop scent! hah)

    I finally started a blog myself. In today's post, a whippet (well, my grandog) leads Sunny, my Standard Poodle, astray. And it seems to be escalating!

    Hugs all around
    Sunny, Scooter and Jamie (the frazzled human bean)

  11. Congratulations...And, uh...Muzzer is not sure about the poop candle, but if we win, we can always send it to Miss Snickers' dad. We just enjoy visiting with you and reading your stories.

    and Teka (well, if it is a Swede William poop candle, I would lurve to win it!)

  12. Who the heck could pass up a poop candle?

  13. That poop candle is the best thing yet!!! It's so appropriate this weekend for what Babystan did at daycare yesterday...ya better come and's um...unusual to say the least...!!!!!

    That picture of Maria looks like a painting!!!

    We love your bloggie, Whippets!!!!

    Kisses to ur servants!!!


  14. Now that is one funky candle! LOL! I'm not the slightest bit surprised, but very happy for you (and me..tee hee) that your blog is doing well.

    Hugs, Ane
