The Puppies and the Mystery Beasts

Storms and more storms and then...

Storms and more storms and then…

Tanner: What is it? Can you see?

Tanner to Max: What do you see?

Max to Tanner: Not sure what it is. What do you think?

Max to Tanner: Not sure what it is. What do you think?

Tanner to Max: What IS it?

Tanner to Max: A really strange looking dog?

Max to Tanner: I don't know but they're multiplying. Maybe we should just stay inside and watch out the window.

Max to Tanner: I don’t know but they’re multiplying. Maybe we should just stay inside and watch out the window.

Tanner to Max: Okay.

Tanner to Max: Okay.

Do you know what they saw? Turkey vultures. A skunk was dead in the yard, maybe due to all the flooding we had. In any event, the puppies sure wondered what the animals were out in the yard. But they were content to just watch.

Sent off SEAL Wolf Diving for Trouble and as much rain as we had yesterday, I felt I needed a wetsuit. Finishing up edits on She-Wolf and then will read one last time and turn it in. Then it’s time to get to work on the Billionaire book and some guest blogs for the release of SEAL Wolf Hunting!

Hope you have a great Tuesday! I hear we’re not getting rain for a day or two!

Eau de… Skunk


With the coming of spring, so too come the skunks. In my shifter series, my jaguars, cougars, and wolves have a better sense of smell than humans do. But there’s one thing that humans can smell very well without the enhanced abilities of their wilder halves and that is–skunk. And this morning, I woke to its overwhelming fragrance.


I think of Pepe Le Pew: “Ah! This leetle one wishes to commit suicide to prove her love for me. What a sweet gesture. Never-the-less, I must prevent eet!”

And I admit, I hated that he was so in love and they were the typical star crossed lovers. I always wanted him to find a REAL skunk to fall in love with.

 I ran into one in the side yard one time at night when I went to turn off my water, and it immediately hid behind a sheet of plywood my dad had leaning against the house, have no idea why, but I had to wait until the next morning to turn off the water, AND move that piece of plywood to get rid of the “cute” little skunk’s hiding place.

When my parents were a newly married couple, they had to get the first prerequisite child–a boxer puppy, and once when they were boating on a Texas lake when she was about a year old, the dog got skunked while they were on shore, so rather than let her in the boat for a while, they made her swim after the boat. Suffice it to say, the dog was still wearing eau de skunk until they could scrub her down later.

So when we think of spring flowers and the new green leaves appearing on the trees, we also have the reminder that Pepe Le Pew is on his way looking for that purrrrfect mate. So… get out of his way!
