So one of my favorite airegirls, Maggie, tagged me today to tell you all about my favoritest books. Now since I'm still kinda a young doggin, I haven't done a lot of reading so I've asked my Mom to help me come up with a list of our 5 favoritest books. So here we go, Mom, hey, get over here...I need your help...puhlessseeee...
Hi Everydoggie & GirlGil, Michele here, here's the list of our top 5 favorite books...in no particular order...
1 - Anything Harry Potter by JK Rowling
So that would actually count as 6 books(7 on Saturday - Yay!) but I'll just list as a single topic. I have just loved sinking into these books and being whisked away to Hogwarts and everything magical. I'm really going to miss Harry and the crew!
Ruby: Who's this Hairy guy? All I keep hearing about is Hairy, Hairy, Hairy...go to the groomers already if he's so Hairy!
Ruby's Mom: Ruby...it's Harry not Hairy!
Ruby: What's so great about this guy? I hear no mention about any dogs and no dogs = no good!
Ruby's Mom: Well, there aren't any main characters that were dogs, but there is a dog named Fang and also a 3-headed dog named Fluffy!
Ruby: OK, that's so not real! There's no such this as a 3-headed dog! Silly hooman! What else do you have?
2 - Marley & Me by John Grogan
Great story about a very crazy lab. Story reminded me of my early trials & tribulations with Ruby.
Ruby: Hey, Marley kinda looks like Bob, doesn't he? And what trials & tri-blue-ate-tons???
Ruby's Mom: Well, yes, he does look like Bob and let's just say you were a bit of a handful when I first got you and so was this dog.
Ruby: Well, I never...um, uh, I just don't know what to say to that? I'm offended!!!! We're in a fight now Mom - 15minutes...no talking to me...I'm so hurt!
Ruby's Mom: Ruby!
Ruby: Talk to the paw!
3 - Kane & Abel by Jeffrey Archer
I read this so long ago, but I come back to it every few years. It's just a wonderful sweeping story. A great summer read.
Ruby: Sounds kinda boring if you ask me...
Ruby's Mom: I thought we were in a fight?
Ruby: I changed my mind.
Ruby's Mom: It's a great book, but I guess you are just too little to understand.
Ruby: I am not! It's just boring and again, doesn't sound like there are any doggins involved so I'll pass. And I am not too little! OK, back to being in a fight - 15 minutes - no talking.
Ruby's Mom: You were the one who asked for some help on this.
Ruby: Talk to the paw!
4 - Sense & Sensibility by Jane Austen
I love anything Jane Austen, but this one is my favorite. I just love all the crazy entanglements and the movie wasn't so bad either.
Ruby's Mom: What, nothing to say about this one?
Ruby: Are you talking to me? Did I hear something?
Ruby's Mom: OK, moving on.
5 -The Only Dog Tricks Book You'll Ever Need: Impress Friends, Family--and Other Dogs! by Gerilyn J. Bielakiewicz
OK, maybe not one of my favorites, but this was a great book in helping me do some trick training with Ruby. Remember her crawl...got it from this book. Things are really explained clearly and made learning fun. It was a good bonding book for me and Ruby.
Ruby: Oh, I liked this book.
Ruby's Mom: Why?
Ruby: Because every time you looked at it and we started working, I got snackies!
Ruby's Mom: Oh I see, it's all about the snackies!
Ruby: Of course it is! That and spending time with you!
Ruby's Mom: Does this mean we aren't in a fight anymore.
Ruby: No more fight...can I have a snackie?
I have tons more books I love that I could go on and on, but I'll leave it at this. And remember, Reading is Fundamental! I'll turn this back over to Ruby now...
OK, Ruby here. Thanks Mom for your help and for the snackie. I think I'll tag Suki, Balboa, my Stanny , Sitka, and Marvin...what are you and your hoomans 5 favoritest books?
