Comments for Little Lost Puppy
The Little Lost Puppy: 12/26/06
My librarian friend and fellow Bookcrosser "lovemylife" sent me another small box of rescues from her library. These are often times old books that have spent the last many decades on the shelves and are now ready to be retired but aren't of interest to patrons of the library book sale. She knows I love old books and will read anything. She also knows I have young children so this box had many wonderful old children's books.
Among the recent set was Little Lost Puppy, a book published when my mother just one year old. I'm pretty sure I've read the story before and maybe from a copy my mother owns. Regardless, I was thrilled to see it in the box.
The story is beautifully illustrated and follows the day of two cops in a small town who are trying to find a lost puppy. In the course of the day they find a lost bird and a lost kitten. Ultimately they find the puppy too but how they find him I won't say. I don't want to spoil the best of the story.
Gratitude #26: Boxing Day Beach
I am thankful that we were able to take our annual walk along La Jolla Shores Beach with my mother, brother, Ian and our children. This year is obviously Harriet's first Boxing Day trip to the beach. She spent the first half of the walk enjoying the view from her sling. Sean meanwhile proudly walked with his owl backpack and helped Mom look for "treasure" in the form of sea shells.
Wanting a chance to splash in the water a little, I took my shoes and socks off in the car and chose to walk barefoot. We walked from the parking lot to the Scripps Pier. By the time we were at the pier Sean's legs were getting tired and Harriet had fallen asleep.
Just shy of the parking lot on our return Sean was ready for a lift. Ian gave him a piggy back ride. I took many lovely photographs and will hopefully get them uploaded to my site in early 2007.
