Summer is here. What has she been doing?
She’s been making dummies for a book about me. Lots of them. This dummy is tiny.
It’s just 5 and 1/2 inches. What’s the big deal? Why does it take so long to make a picture book?
Somedays… she walks me to the library. She gets books. I get ear rubs and dog treats.
Happy Summer…WOOF!….from Wilbur
If you’re reading this, that means I was able…with help…to get my website out into the world and connect it with my blog.
…and Paige Kaleita, I couldn’t have done this without your help…
…And to all of those visiting this page.
I look forward to playing with my blog and being able to update my new website all by myself.
Thanks for visiting…stop back again…you never know what you might find!…tcp

“It’s 2017. I’m waiting for my book. She said she would write a book about me. Instead, she wrote a story about a penguin. I ate the manuscript. She wrote it again. She drew pictures and made a dummy. She sent it off before I got a chance to eat it. I’m hoping her editor doesn’t like it. Then she can get started on my book. For now, I keep looking at her. I think she’s feeling guilty, because she’s drawing lots of pictures of me. I’ll keep you posted”
PS. At least she’s updated her blog.
