Brutus Learns about Quilting

Brutus enjoyed last night's quilt program. The pictures and ideas presented on the quilts were very interesting. Has anyone made a quilt featuring dogs (and no cats)? If he can learn to sew with paws instead of fingers, he may try to make one himself. All the rules he had to obey were very limiting though for a little dog--no dog hair on the quilts, no chewing on the quilts, no taking a nap on a quilt, and no eating of the cookies-- although it looks like he may have helped himself to one or two or those.

The next program in Owosso will be on Thursday, February 10th at 7 p.m. Brutus hopes to see you there to learn about Social Security even though the staff keep telling him that dogs don't get Social Security; they must rely upon their owners for their food and housing. Maybe he should push for equal rights for dogs (but then he might also have to work). On second thought, a dog's life isn't too bad.

Brutus Prepares for the Reading Party

Brutus has sniffed out a book for the Reading Party on Tuesday, January 18th at 7 p.m. in Owosso. He has chosen a new one about one of his favorite dogs, Chet. Chet can always solve the mystery before the humans usually even pick up the scent; and while he is fond of his owner Bernie, Chet is much smarter. (Aren't most dogs?) Quinn tells the story from Chet's perspective which is another reason why he is one of Brutus's favorite authors; no other author understands a dog's thoughts as well.

Another plus, Brutus has heard rumors that there will be cookies (maybe homemade?) at the party, too. He hopes to see lots of you there.
