If I were six years younger I’d be getting excited. As it is, I’m smiling contentedly and leaving the youngsters to do the bouncing. The hardback proof of our Mistress’s book about our breed arrived yesterday. It looks pretty amazing, even if I do say so myself. We are hoping it might be able to go on sale in the next couple of days, which would be almost exciting enough for me to jump up and down. To be fair, Wilma is doing enough jumping for all of us as her picture is on the back cover and she thinks that makes her a star. Anyway, as long as the final proof arrives today and is all right then our Mistress will push all the buttons for it to go on sale. It is the first complete guide to our breed in the English language. There is a book in Dutch and one in German and there was a Swiss booklet many years ago, but the only ones in English or either just about training or are general breed books with only a small amount about our breed included. The Complete Entlebucher Mountain Dog Book is 200 pages just about us and they are quite big pages too. There are about 160 colour photographs including ones of me! What more could you possible ask for? Anyway, I’m slightly jumping
the gun in telling you. You can only preorder the ebook version at the moment, but that is all about to change.
The night before last, I had the strangest dream. I was fast asleep in my den when all of a sudden I thought something was chasing me and shot out waking everyone up and feeling very dazed and confused. It took ages for our Mistress to reassure me there was no one else there and I could go back to sleep safely. You know what it’s like when you wake with a start and your heart’s racing, well I was like that but it turns out it was all a bad dream. I had a quieter night last night so hopefully it was a one off. I’ll be checking for monsters under the bed before you know it. If there are any, it’s only likely to be Wilma pretending!
Have a great Thursday
