formals, dog problems, new covers and line edits...

as the old saying goes, it never rains but it pours. This past week felt like that–everything came on at once.

Kasey had her formal last Saturday, so we spent Friday and Saturday running around collecting last minute items, and getting her hair and make-up done. It came as quite a shock to see her all dressed up–my little girl is growing up and becoming a lady (more so than her mother ever was, anyway. Me, I was always a tomboy ;) )

On Sunday we noticed that Ella’s limp hadn’t gotten any better, so she obviously hadn’t just jarred her leg like we first thought. So, off to the vet to see what the problem is. We discovered she’s a fatty–46 kilos, which is a whole lot of dog–and that the problem could be arthritis, or something worse. We’re waiting to see if the jab she received yesterday works or not. If it does, then it’s arthritis. If it doesn’t, she has to have xrays and blood tests to see what’s going on. Either way, the black fatty has to lose weight. (I may add here that I don’t overfeed, and don’t give her lots of treats. But as the vet said, labs can sniff food and put on kilos. So, she’s sort of like me in that respect :D )

And of course, in the midsts of all the running around on Friday, the line edits for Dangerous Games came in. I have a week to get them done and get them back to Bantam. There goes the writing for the next couple of days! And Bantam has redone the cover art for Tempting Evil and Dangerous Games. I loved the old covers, and I love these:
