Literary Dog and the Octicorn


With the amount of poetry slams, author talks and readings Mr. N has been to, he should be quite the literary dog by now. He likes to use books as pillows sometimes.

We went to a book reading a few weeks ago. The author and illustrator read the book out loud and signed copies. I only took Mr. N because I knew there would be food and children there and it would be too much for the foster pup.

Mr. N sat patiently next to me while the book was read (granted it was short because it’s a children’s book) and ignored the chocolate cupcake crumbs all over the floor after I told him to “leave it.” He also let various children pet him and feed him non-cupcake treats.

And he even made a new friend! Meet the one and only !

    That's so awesome that you can take Mr N with you!
    There are a couple of small independent book shops here that will allow dogs in while you're shopping, but not many. I don't often press my luck with dog-friendly store policies because even if they are allowed, they're often a spectacle and I'm not always interested in drawing attention.
    Love the bandanna!

    Your new friend has his own book … Wow! We are impressed by your literary connections … quite impressive.
    Looks like you had a wonderful time with the kids and that is really great!

    An octicorn! Just when I thought I’d seen it all. What a cute new friend. I can just imagine the stuff you’d get into together… ?

    Mr. N is such a model canine citizen! That Octicorn is pretty wild, but I would guess the kids were more interested in Mr. N than the story.

    Mr N you are quite the most amazing dog in the world (as in dos equis). I’m not sure Dolly could do that but she can be very well behaved, when she wants. Sandra and Dolly
