King Pug

Walter has been staying with my mum this week and she has named him "the Commandant." I think he's still the king.

Oh, do run and get my...

This is Walter tossing me a casual glance and willing me to go and fetch his chicken-stix so he can enjoy them on the porch.

Chee-kon legs is what wally does when he's about to take a nap. Sticks hid back legs out like little chicken drummies, so we call them chicken legs, or the preferable "CHEE-KON Legs!"

Walter and I made USA Today

Getting a pug was the smartest thing I've ever done for my writing career. Walter is asked to be in almost every article written about my books, and it's a good thing too, because as you can see, his head is as big as mine, meaning every photo is twice as big. Plus, not all stories on books get photos, but what newspaper editor could resist publishing this muggins? Forget the redhead, total side note. This picture was taken by Associated Press reporter, Jeff Baenen. I told him to make "high pitched tea-kettle type noises" to get Walter to look at him. Worked pretty good, huh?

Walter laid in bed with me like this for an hour. It's hard to see his eyes, but he's staring at me. For an hour.
