Just Harry Devours Alexander McCall Smith

Hi Pals,

If you remember, a few days ago, Just Harry was thinking about studying law to get us out of our totally unjustified house arrest. Now that we are free, however, JH seems to have moved on to good literature. Although he still enjoys a fine No. 2 pencil chew, chomping a tasty book seems to give him even greater satisfaction.

Our Mom is a fan of the several series Alexander McCall Smith has written, starting with the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency, about a "traditionally built woman" living in Botswana, and moving on to his Scotland series. Just Harry seems to share Mom's taste. Fortunately, his chomp while Mom and Dogdad were out on Saturday stopped just short of the words on the last pages, so we didn't have to rush out and buy her a new copy!!

At least it's better than another chocolate binge, right?

We are excited to announce that our eloquent friends Cooper and Levi (Cooper being the insightful angel who converses with his Mom from the Rainbow Bridge as she teaches little Levi what the world is all about) have shared this award with us. You can find them at .

We've seen this award on so many of our friends' blogs that we're not sure how to share it -- so we think those who feel they deserve it should accept it from us. In the meantime, we'll troll around to see who might not have it yet.

Thank you Cooper and Levi!!!

Jake and Just Harry

Hey Boys! Tell your mom you need more food. You guys must be hungry to eat anything that is not tied down.

A book worm, sorry knibbler hey!
Do your mis-demeanours never end - TY you didn't wreck the last pages or it would be another pawtition.
And, I might not have found it in my heart to sign this time - books are sacred!

Love, pats & pets, despite of this ...

H-Mom loves McCall Smith too! But she doesn't get that close to the pages! I'm not a book lover ... I'm just nibbling on the humans in the house lately -- I better quit or I'll end up in the slammer and that's not an idle threat!

Good job on the book. My mom says to tell your mom she loves the ladies detective agency but she wasn't to fond of the scotland series

Unknown said...

Mommy wants to know where you two were when she really needed to use the old "The Dog Ate My Homework" excuse!

I was afraid that you'd chomped down on the final solution to the mystery. Big trouble!

In the words of Austin Powers...Oh behave!

Your pal,

How was that book? I am not a huge fan or reading, but Tanner gets into books every once in a while. Maybe I should recommend this one to him!

Scottie the 'Cutie' said...

Uh oh...did your Mom get very angry from the binge on the book? But yeah,like you said...better than a chocolate binge. That would be...eep!

Congrats on your award!

There is nothing better than a quiet night at home devouring a good book.

I like to get my teeth into a good book. Congrats on your award.

Boys, Mom used to have two little boys who liked to pee on her book case. They could only reach the books on the bottom. They thought they were doing her a favour by peeing on them instead of chewing on them. I mean, she could still read them right? These people get so cranky about the weirdest things.
