New Year’s Resolution (with Pugs)

This year I resolve to have more quality time with cute animals. I'm making it really easy on myself because I can spend that time with books, movies, and my own two pups. I'm also going to ask permission of every dog owner I see and pat the pooch. I'm going to stop and watch the bunnies hop around my backyard. And darn it, if I can find a friendly one, I'm going to pet kittens.

 

Until then, I'll snag the movie Bolt. It's got a mighty hamster, a snarky alley cat, and a pup who thinks he's a super-hero. And a happy ending that might just have you reaching for a hanky.

I'll find a small child to share Pugs of the Frozen North (a not-so-impossible tale) and laugh and laugh and laugh. Or maybe I'll just abandon pride and admit I'm reading it for myself. I love Philip Reeve's madcap imagination. (And it's available for easy download from Overdrive, too)

I'm going to overdose on chibi with Chi's Sweet Home. It's a manga that gives us a kitten's eye view of finding your forever home. And yes! You can watch the anime, as well. So cute!

I'll definitely re-read Rabbit Hill. That's a good book for these parlous times, trust me. It will remind you of all the hope and goodness that's still abounding in the people you know.

And if you know a small dog, give it a hug from me. Dogs are awesome.
