New Book Bags!

Brutus is investigating the new book bags now available in both Durand and Owosso.  They are not only great for carrying books and other items, but he thinks they would also be useful for transporting small pets (especially dogs with short legs who have to run to keep up with their humans; cats can walk).  The bags are canvas with a front pocket and top zipper, and they measure approximately 14 inches by 17 inches by 3.5 inches.  They cost $6, and Brutus has added one to his Christmas list!

One of Brutus' Favorite Authors

Brutus, when he wasn't stuffing himself with turkey last week, enjoyed the new book by Spencer Quinn.  Quinn is one of his favorite authors (just like Thanksgiving is his favorite holiday) because Chet is a dog and also the narrator; and Quinn speaks fluent dog.  Brutus was almost inspired to go chase murderers while reading this story, but a knife wielding character convinced him that there might be too much danger involved.  For now he is going to content himself with his warm box in the library until he can sniff out another good book.

Writing Your Family History

Brutus has been very busy the past few weeks trying to learn how to write with a pencil.  Neither his paws or his mouth seem to work very well with computers or pencils.  He is trying to prepare for Mardi Link's presentation on Sunday, December 9th in Owosso on writing your family history.  He doesn't know much about his parents or siblings, but he'd like to be able tell more about some of his library adventures.  He would also like to encourage all interested humans to preregister by December 6th to guarantee a space.  He has heard that she is a very good presenter and has written an award winning book.  As soon as he can get this doggone pencil to work, he'll begin working on his memoir which he intends to call Tail-Wagging Adventures in the Library.  (Or maybe he should just find someone to whom to dictate his story and forget about the pencil).
