|This is Pixie. Doesn't she look a little like me???|
Lily and I are going to be FAMOUS DOGS!
Mama is telling us to settle down right now because we are not going to be that famous. But just a little famous is good enough for us!
It all started when Mama had the idea to write a book for kids, about dogs. She wrote a book called The Best Dog In The World. It is about a little boy whose family fosters a dog from a rescue organization. Mama said she got the idea from me! In fact, the main dog in the story even looks a little like me, and her name is Pixie, which rhymes with Trixie!
I think the book should say "by Trixie" on the front, but Mama says she is the one who did all the hard work of writing and drawing the pictures, and all I had to do was exist. But she did say that Lily and me are her Official Spokesdogs!
The best part of Mama's new book is that she is going to donate half of the profits to different rescue organizations. Most of the money will go to the rescue that I was adopted from. But she will also spread it around to other organizations. For instance, three times this summer she is going to be selling her book at different fundraisers for particular shelters, and whatever money she makes on those days, she will donate half of it to the shelter that hosted her. Also, if she hears of an animal who needs some special help, like a dog who needs a lot of medical care, she will donate some to that dog.
We are all excited about how many pets we may be able to help!
Oh yeah... and another thing? Mama says Trixie and I can have a blog again! We will probably start a new blog site, because Mama says this blog has a lot of personal information on it, which Mama felt safe sharing with you guys, our friends, but maybe not with the entire whole wide world. When it is all set up, we will come and give you a link. Will you follow us there?
She's also looking for a few people who might want a copy of our book to review on their blog. Would that be you?
Okay... if you want to go find out more about our book, our website is at http://nickimannbestdog.weebly.com. Be sure you look at the link that says Spokesdogs! That is my favorite page!
Oh yeah... also Mama said, at the risk of making her sound crazy, we can tell you that she called the Pet Psychic Radio one day because she really wanted to hear about Sammy-Joe. She was worried that maybe he somehow gave himself cancer because he felt like she didn't love him anymore. I knew that was ridiculous, but you know Mama, once she gets an idea in her head there's no arguing with her! Anyways she called, and the Psychic on the radio told her that Sammy-Joe is happy, that he met Mama's grandmother, and that he is a great hunter. He also said he is with Mama all the time and that he is her angel now! (Actually he said he was a cat with wings, but we knew what he was trying to say.)
