The April 2016 Book of the Month (BOTM) selection is THE DOGS by Allan Stratton.
“Out of the corner of my eye, I catch something moving by the barn. When I look, it disappears. Wait. There it is again, at the cornfield. Some movement, some thing.
Mom and I have been on the run for years. Every time he catches up with us, we move to a new place and start over.
But this place is different.
This place is full of secrets. And they won’t leave me alone.”

Just for fun, check out this new business enterprise–PET RENTALS!
Meet Mr. Max Braun! Max is Adam James’s favorite Chocolate Lab. Max is seven years old and loves dog walks in the mountains, rides in the truck, popcorn at Imagine Nation Brewery and dips in Rattlesnake Creek up here in Montana.
Now meet Rocky the Rottie! He is our Mod Stephanie’s super dog in Colorado. Here is what Stephanie says about him:
“Rocky is two years and a few months old. He needs lots of training, because he doesn’t care too much for men. He will do anything for a woman, but when it comes to Hubby, it’s like it went thru one ear and out the other with Rocky. Very well behaved with me, and way over protective. He can be mean in a flip of a switch Love my Rotties!”
Rotties certainly are interesting dogs. Ten years ago Adam James brought home a nine year old female Rottie named Shenga from the animal shelter. Shenga was one of the sweetest dogs ever. Loved puppies of all kinds. Loved homeless folks and Pitts, too. And she loved to strut through a hotel lobby and watch jaws drop.
MAX’S DOG PACK:
The pack consists of Max and his two pals, Molly and Sadie from next door. Here’s Molly and Sadie looking through the window in the dog door.
And here are all three of them lobbying for treats.
NOW SHOW US YOUR DOGS, Y’ALL!!
Yes! We wanna see ’em!
Email your dog pics along with a few descriptive words to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will post them right here for everyone to see and admire forever!
Kim’s dog Madie the Boxer is 10 years old and looking good! These are just great dogs.
Jacquelyn’s dog Mikey is a fun-loving German Shepherd that is 2 years old. He likes to chase birds and sometimes they attack back. It’s hilarious. I knew one day I would have an opportunity to show off my beautiful dog.
Leslie’s dog Pepper is an Aussie Shepherd. She has baby blue eyes and loves tennis balls.
Here are Brian’s two ghostwriters Manny & Teddy.
“Manny is the cream-colored dog and Teddy is black and white. They are with me constantly while I’m writing during the day. They are great little watchdogs. I call the The Knight Templars of our neighborhood…”
Here’s Bella – one of Betsy’s friends – a lovely big Newfoundland mix.
“Bella is a sweet-natured, gentle giant, so loving. She came from an abused beginning but has blossomed into this magnificent dog. She’s 8 years old.”
Cortney says, “I know this is supposed to be all about dogs, but I never read alone thanks to Jillian (dog) and Gemma (cat).”
Karen says, “I am enjoying your book as part of Goodreads Psychological Thriller Group. Here is a pic of one of my dogs Rosie. She’s all mutt and training to be a Search and Rescue dog!”
Just take a look at Rhonda’s dog Kristi! “She is a doll. She knows when I am happy, sad, and even when I need to check my blood sugar. I am a TYPE 1 Diabetic, and she has trained herself to wake me, by licking my face when my glucose (sugar) is low, and I need to take something to raise it. I never taught this to her, and training dogs to do this costs a lot of money and hundreds of hours of training. She has saved my life numerous times when I have had very low sugars, whereby I was too low to even take my blood sugar at the time.”
I just received a picture of this natty little guy. Mitchie’s owner says, “My daughter, Stephanie’s little mitchie. Rescued dog which is the best thing I did. She hated her when I first brought her home but now they are best friends.” What a cute little guy. With a pair of ears like that, I’ll bet Mitchie doesn’t miss a thing, like the crackle of a wrapper or bag of cookies being opened a block away.
Let’s keep these dog pics rolling in now!!
Jane writes, “…this is one of husband (Jerry) and his dog when Shi was about a year old. We call it Who’s in the dog house now…lol.”
Jimmie writes. “The picture I sent is from my two year full breed Boxer, named Sheba. Sheba was added to my family from a family friend. Sheba is a robust, playful two year old. She enjoys taking anything not attached through her doggie door to her backyard. Sheba is sweet natured and is a great family dog. I’m afraid Sheba does not meet the same personality of the dogs in the book The Dogs.”
Karen writes, “Here is Lucy a year old pit-Mastiff mix.”
Thanks for stopping by!
