Favorite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger

I'd give the book up as a bad job if you're not enjoying it, Chuck. I really like Barbara Erskine as an author and have read most of her books - I have her last two still to read. But each to their own. If I didn't like a book after 100 pages, I'd abandon it (then again, I'm very good at persevering in the hope that it will get better myself!). Life's too short.

Vanessa's right Chuck, or at least put it aside and pick up something else. I enjoyed it but it's far from Erskine's best, which doesn't help with you're trying out a new genre.

New pet in the fold!

I was still waiting yesterday to hear from the rescue group about the adoption of a black and tan Cocker named Chelsea, and getting impatient with the lack of followup from them since Tuesday.

So I went online and checked out the available dogs from the breeder I bought Lucy (my 1 1/2 yr old Cocker) from last year. Yay! I bought a sweet 4 1/2 month old black and tan male yesterday evening. I've named him Guinness and he's the most laid back pup I've ever had.

He's even Lucy's half-uncle, but he's a year and two weeks younger than she is. Guinness and Lucy's mother were sired by the same dog named Sir Supertramp (different mothers though). Guinness will keep Lucy company during the work week and espcially during tax season when I basically come home just to sleep!

Oh, how lovely, Leyland. Hope Guinness brings you lots of love. What an appropriate name for his colouring! :)
