Penny and Rio: The Mysterious Backyard Meeting
Author: Jennifer Swanson

Penny and Rio: The Mysterious Backyard Meeting: Penny and Rio are two dogs who are complete opposites. Penny is curious and always on the go, while Rio prefers a good nap. At their new house, Penny discovers that their backyard is the meeting place for several different animals. Penny doesn’t know why a cat, a groundhog, a squirrel, and an owl could possibly be meeting, but she knows she has to find out. She comes up with an ingenious plan for spying on them and discovers their plot. She has to stop them – but can she get her sister dog, Rio, to help her or will Rio decide that sleep is more important?

Author: Nancy Murray

Gullah, The Nawleans Cat Meets Katrina, part-whimsy, part-reality, is the story of a mischievous cat caught in America's worst natural disaster, Hurricane Katrina.

In addition to meeting authors
and getting autographed copies of some of your favoriate books,

Ram in November

It's feeling like winter in Florida...

...under the bridge at RAM
but the hot chocolate is delicious!

And the artists were out and playing
with sidewalk chalk

 And we met a very important dog...

He is in his final stages of training before he goes to college
and once he graduates he will go to live with a little girl
who has Cerebral Palsy

There is a wonderful program in Florida where volenteers train dogs to be people companions. The program is free with no cost to the family.

The families are able to meet the dog and be matched with a best friend for life. A little girl is about to meet her best buddy in the whole world.

How cool is that!

For Halloween I was an Angel
and worked the Gooberella booth
at the Riverside Arts Market

Lots of people were dressed up but my
 favorite was the wolf man

boy was he scary!

I met lots of cool dogs...

 But the coolest dog of all was Tess.

Tess had served in Iraqi...a real hero dog!

I had tons of fun...
lots of people took pictures of me in my angel wings.
I made lots of milk bone money.
It was a great day and now for my nap
