So you remember on Friday I talked about Spencer Quinn's book Thereby Hangs a Tail. Cute. Funny. Ha-ha-hilarious to see the world through a dog's eyes. I checked it and the next one, To Fetch a Thief, from my friendly local library.
And on Friday, I started reading the second one. It looked like this at one time.
Now it looks like this. I went to the grocery store early Saturday morning and in the space of less than 2 hours, this book went from the top picture to the bottom picture.
I am not amused.
He is still alive.
I had to send the library a note saying that my dog ate my library book. And then wait, cringing all the time, for the bill to arrive. So much for "free books" and all.
Then we had some quiet time. When I stuffed my rage back through resting my eyes, a cold Diet Coke, and half a box of Cheerios, we went on to the park. That went about like you'd expect.
Then Jack took a nap and forgot the whole episode. I won't forget until the check to the library clears the bank.
