Most people have an ice crusher as part of their freezer. My ice crusher is in the form of a three-legged canine. This dog won't eat a darn thing, but he sure likes crushing ice!
He gallops to the freezer and stands there, waiting for someone to depress the ice maker. When someone does, and the ice spills to the floor, he scoops it up in his large mouth and crushes it. It's ridiculous!
I'm waiting for the day when he will learn how to press the ice dispenser with his nose. That will be one good trick!
Here he is after his last chemo treatment. They actually put a bandaid on him. You can see it in the picture.
I have two other things that may be of interest to you:
One, I met my wonderful publisher, Diane Wolfe of Dancing Lemur Press last week at Book 'Em North Carolina. She's a terrific person! If any of you are one of her authors, know that she does a lot of work to promote your book!
And second, author, Irene Helenowski interviewed me via Skype. Click on the link if you'd like to watch. You'll be entertained because I'm such a goofy person!
I saw that you met our publisher! Very cool.ReplyDelete
Some dogs have a thing for ice.
Schultz loved ice when he was younger, then he sort of stopped. Now he loves it again.Delete
Let's hear it for Google Alerts - or I would've missed this. It was a delight to meet you. You're doing a lot to promote your book, too.ReplyDelete
Hopefully all of our efforts will pay off some day!Delete
I hope you dog health improves soon, awful to see them suffer. I saw your pic with L. Diane Wolfe on her blog. It's good to meet up with fellow bloggers.ReplyDelete
I've met a few bloggers in person, and yes, it's nice to see them in "real life."Delete
I will have to check out the Skype link when I have more time.ReplyDelete
I can relate to your dog loving ice. I had a dog once who loved ice and also chewed rocks! :)
Diane sounds absolutely wonderful!
Diane is great. I feel very fortunate to work with her.Delete
What is it with dogs and ice? My roommate's dog growls at her water bowl until someone fills it with ice.ReplyDelete
I don't know if they like the cold, or if they like the sound it makes when they chomp on it.Delete
Poor Schmultzy, at least he finds some comfort in ice!ReplyDelete
Yes. Life's little pleasures.Delete
Great that you got to meet her. Poor guy looks pooped, but at least he can have some icy fun.ReplyDelete
He's definitely an old dog now!Delete
Haha, silly Schultz! His obsession with ice is too cute.ReplyDelete
And how cool that you got to meet your publisher in person!
I'm glad I made the trip just to see her!Delete
Poor Schultz. I hope his health keeps improving. Yay on the interview. I bet that was a nice experience.ReplyDelete
Yep. It was.Delete
It's great to see you again, dear friend! Thanks for the update on Schultz. Those chemo treatments clearly knock the wind out of him. I hope his appetite improves soon. Schultz's behavior reminds me of my dog Toto. Toto used to wait beneath the ice maker hoping cubes would drop to the floor. Whenever they did she would scrambled to grab them in her jaws and crunch away, never fearing a brain freeze. :) She must have regarded the frig as a Vegas slot machine because she always got excited when she "hit the jackpot."
I am delighted to see the recent picture of you posing with your publisher Diane Wolfe. I also very much enjoyed your Skype interview. Far from coming across as "goofy," you handled the Q & A extremely well and revealed yourself to be intelligent, articulate and interesting. I enjoyed learning how Bubba was the inspiration for your first book, about the facets of your new job and how you learned to play various musical instruments. I know you are an adventure lover, bravely diving into water and out of airplanes, making you a well rounded and fascinating person.
I hope Schultz continues to perk up and resume eating and I wish you all the best in your challenging and rewarding career, dear friend Sherry!
Thanks, Shady. You always have the nicest things to say. Enjoy your week!Delete
So sorry to hear about the poor dog, and hoping he makes a full recovery.ReplyDelete
Well done with your 'goofy' interview on Skype, Sherry 😊
Poor Schulz. At least he's found a way to amuse himself.ReplyDelete
You did great on your interview.
My freezer doesn't have an ice crusher, so I need your dog :)ReplyDelete
You're doing great, Sherry! So glad you got to meet your publisher and also the adorable Irene Helenowski.
I'll send Schultz over. He'll do a great job crushing your ice...as long as you don't mind dog slobber all over it!Delete
Schultz is adorable. I hope he begins eating better soon. Great photo of you and Diane. Awesome that ya'll got to meet.ReplyDelete
Yes, I was thrilled to meet Diane. She's a hard-working lady.Delete
My dog loves crushed ice in his bowl, especially in the summer. Glad you got to meet your publisher! We gotta get you to Savannah.ReplyDelete
That would be great. Let me know when. I'd love to meet you in person, too!Delete
Great that you met your publisher.ReplyDelete
Yes. Not many authors get to do that!Delete
Aw. I want to give Schulz a hug.ReplyDelete
I wish I could've been there to met both of you!
I wish you were coming to Miami. Then we'd get to meet. Maybe some other time. :)Delete
Give your ice crusher puppy a hug from me! So cute! I loved the interview Sherry! Great picture of you and your publisher! Big Hugs!ReplyDelete
Thank you! Big hugs right back at you!Delete
aww...lovely interview...I am glad and lucky to know you even though through blogger only.ReplyDelete
Have a great day
Thank you! It would be very nice if we could meet all our blogger friends in person. Maybe a blogger convention in some paradise location. Wouldn't that be fun?Delete
OOOH! Just the thought of ice being crunched like this sets my teeth on edge.ReplyDelete
I so hope Shultz got to pick his elastoplast ... and got a 'I've been good' sticker as well.
I'm not crazy about the sound of crushing ice, either. I always worry he'll break his teeth. But it must be like chewing bones. It doesn't seem to bother him.Delete
Thank you for sharing the ice-crushing update on Shultz. Glad he's doing so much better.ReplyDelete
And I'm so glad you met your wonderful editor in person, Sherry.
Yes. He's a skinny dog, but he's still happy.Delete
