Say hello to Cody! Our black lab who, as you can see, is one happy puppy. Cody in clover! Cody loves lying about. He loves Frisbee chasing.
And he loves literature…let me explain.
I had pulled down Haruki Murakami’s novel IQ94. By the way, Q or ku, is Japanese for nine. Ku is also the pronunciation of a word that means agony or torture. I know all of this because I’m diligently studying Japanese! As you can see I’ve gotten to the number nine. hai.
Back to Murakami…and Cody. I had gotten a good ways into the novel-up to page 604 in fact-and decided to get up and get another cup of coffee. When I came back to my chair. OMG!
Cody, undoubtedly having read a few lines, literally devoured the novel–that is to say a few pages. Here you see Cody chewing a chew, his fav snack. It could be he’s ruminating on the style of Murakami. I’m not sure.
What I do know is I had to go down to the local BAM and find a copy of Murakami and read pages 605 through 609.
So, my fellow bloggers, I thought you might enjoy this tale of a man and his dog. I’m afraid to leave him alone with my computer…gaaaa.
Do you have a pet? How does your animal friend take to literature and/or the writing process?
Be careful! They’re watching!
