Maggie photobombed me as usual.

ON Saturday Dad brought us a package from the post office.  I love packages and I get all excited as soon as I see a box or envelope brought into our home.  I was really excited when I smelled this package cos I could smell my wonderful friend Sweet William saying Hi to me.  We won a contest.

(this exert is from Sweet Williams page)
Lee belongs to a bookclub that is lead by Queen Janeen Coyle.  Why she is the Morning Radio Queen here in Cincinnati.  Janeen is on 103.5 WGRR every weekday morning.  Why she host Frank's Friends on Wednesday mornings  to introduce an animal that’s available for adoption that day at noon.  The segment also features the latest news from SPCA Cincinnati and helpful tips for pet owners.  Janeen's featured pets have a 100% adoption rate.
Janeen does a lot of good work for our community and beyond.
See even when Flat George was in town she took him to eat at Montgomery Inn.
Well when Janeen started the bookclub she decided she would write a book.
This is her first book A Pug With A Plan.
It is a short story about Frank and how he helped the whole family find Tank.
We have all had beloved pets go to the Rainbow Bridge.
It is a true little story of her familys love and loss of their dear pet. The story of Tank and Frank enables children to learn about the circle of life.  
Well I, Sweet William The Scot, think this is a great story to read to your children, or sit and listen to them read the story.
The book is available on dp/1625100108
So Sweet William, Lee and Ms. Janeen decided to have a contest to see who would win her book.  She was giving away a signed book and Sweet William was also giving away his copy.  ALL you had to do was leave a comment on Sweet William's post about why you wanted to win this book.  So we followed the rules and we won a book!!!!  Ms. Janeen said she liked what we had to say, my Mom was happy.
Do you think this is a picture of Sweet William that he took just for us??  We are going to put it on our Wall of Fame.  He also wrote us a special note.

This reminded Mom and myself right away of Angel Trudie.  Its a wonderful book and written so well for young children. Ms. Janeen also wrote us some special words on the inside of the book and she even mentioned BABY BEAN!  Wow, I wonder how she even knew about that girl!!??

AND THEN there was one more thing in there:

Big peanut butter frosted bones for us!!!  We all sit right away so we could have a piece of it....they were really good.

Thank you very much Sweet William for your contest and the bones and thank you Ms. Janeen for choosing us as one of your winners.
Stella Rose, Maggie and Baby Gussie
