Novel Excerpt 1 25 12 - Excessive Greeting Disorder!



[In which Proper, Joe, Thelonious, and Raine return from a day at a dog show with Emily, and reunite with Hope, Zack, Driver, and Emerson.]

Proper blasted through the kitchen door, followed by Joe in a mock race. Thelonious bounded in next, and even Her Highness allowed herself a bit of silliness, woo-wooing her hello to Emerson and doing some mini zoomies around the kitchen. The dogs in the house were at the ready, having been alerted by the van crunching up the driveway. Zack howled gleeful hellos, and Driver, always vocal, bellowed his deep, nonstop Labrador woof, woof, woofs. Hope, the quiet one, wagged her tail against a cabinet door, adding a statico drumbeat. Seven sets of dog toenails played scritch-scratch ratt-a-tatt on the tile floor as they scrambled around. There was glorious chaos. Celebratory canine jazz.

    Luckily I only have a whippet & a Japanese Chin to greet me when I come home but I have bruises on my legs to prove it & the net curtains at the window get pulled down on a regular basis! LOL

    Keep writing!
