Don’t you think Good Housekeeping would want me to spend the prize money they gave me to pay someone to clean my house?
One request, from Chitownmez, and, yes, I know what it’s all about. She wants to see Ursa. You all do, I’m sure. No one comes here to see what I have to say, blah, blah, writing, blah.
Just get to the dog, lady.
Ursa is currently lying at my feet, hoping that we might do something other than play on the white box today. Like Park! Or Walk! (Again—she gets one every morning and one after her dinner, too. Don’t let her fool you.) Or Play! LET’S GO THROW THAT BALL!
We’ll do one of these things, primarily because my dog is insanely spoiled.
And well documented. Here’s a little Ursa, The Early Days.
And then some recent pining we did on the front porch. “EVERYONE is having more fun than me.”
But there’s always hope. Always hope that Her People will put down the white box and do something fun. “I wish they’d take me to the Puppy Park.”

Haha! I love this. Reminds me of a little boy I babysat for a few weeks ago. I had to pick him up from school and take him home and start his dinner. He wanted to go to the park. It was cold out, and dinner needed to be made. At home, he laid on the floor saying, "I never get to go anywhere." When I asked him where he wanted to go, he thought for a minute, and then said, "Pump It Up. Or Bubbleland." Hee hee. XX Lauren
Hey now, I love what you write. But I am having withdrawals (soon to be remedied!)
Ursa has had a lovely weekend. She got to go to the puppy park at California and Foster, and there were indeed other dogs there. Much ball has been thrown. Three walks today alone. And then we had a photo shoot, which she doesn't care about, but it involved playing with her dinosaur, which she loves.
Lori, you've made my afternoon! First I read "The Summer Ahead" in Freight Stories and then I googled you and found this. I loved the story and Ursa could not be more adorable. I'm so glad you shared it all.
Thanks, Margosita! Glad you liked the story. I have another story in the May issue of Good Housekeeping, but it might be too late to get one on the shelves. Time for the June GH already. Thanks for visiting!
