Thursday: Dogs and Books

~~~ Boxers in the Snow ~~~

Max strikes a regal pose as he surveys the back yard and spots Lailah's silliness.

Meanwhile Lailah snuffles around with her muzzle in the snow! I am not kidding! Could she be scenting the resident rabbits under the deck?
Max: Enough of this 11-degree stuff, I'm heading for the door and warmth!

"What new books are you looking forward to most in 2008? Something new being published this year? Something you got as a gift for the holidays? Anything in particular that you’re planning to read in 2008 that you’re looking forward to? A classic, or maybe a best-seller from 2007 that you’re waiting to appear in paperback?"I'm in the process of reading a Zadie Smith book, On Beauty and am looking forward two getting into two books I bought with a Christmas gift card: The Last Mrs. Astor: A New York Story by Frances Kiernan and The President's Table: Two Hundred Years of Dining and Diplomacy by Barry H. Landau. Although The President's Table is a lavish coffee table book, it is heavy on content and interesting insider's information from the author who is a former Head Chef at the White House. It's a lush book, a pleasure to handle.
God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another. 1 Peter 4:10

Elise likes to sniff out the bunnies and squirrels in the snow too.
Max is a smart dog!
