"One of my bitches gave birth to a litter of mongrels. Before, they were too young to tell. But now... Well, I'd hoped for purebreads."

  7. Well, I don't know. His comment didn't win me over.(: It didn't seem to bother her. So I must have gotten up on the wrong side of the bed.

  8. The cover looks really "bad". I have not read any of Sarah's work, but that cover alone would make me give it a shot.

  13. That is a funny passage. Mine is much tamer. It came from the newly released Pioneer Girl: The Annotated Autobiography by Laura Ingalls Wilder and edited by Pamela Smith Hill.

    Hope you have a great weekend.

  17. I keep seeing this book being touted but I have to say that quote didn't win me over either. I didn't find that even remotely amusing. Sorry.

  18. The quote made me smile - don't think the book is quite my thing, but the writing looks fun. This is my first time trying your meme - I'm enjoying surfing about - Louise
