Someone get my dog out of the pool…
We’ve been playing with Archer in the pool and now it’s all he wants to do. He won’t leave the step unless we make him – loves sitting more than actually swimming. But he WILL swim if pushed. Literally.
Yesterday I spent a good part of the day swimming out to fetch a tennis ball, grabbing it in my teeth, and swimming it back to Mike to show him (Archer, not Mike) swimming is fun… but all he really wants to do is this:
Follows us outside to water plants? Pool.
Get’s bored in the house? Asks to go out so he can stare at Pool.
We had to put chairs in front of the steps to keep him out, though I’m sure it won’t be long until he’s flinging himself off the side.
He climbs on the floaty chair when it’s sitting on the side of the pool and waits for me to push it in so he can float around.
Makes me launch him like a ship.
When he’s not in the pool, he’s bringing us gifts so we’ll let him to the pool… Like entire palm fronds… Though when it comes to pets gifting dead things, I’ll take the palm!
Well, at least I can take a relaxing shower…

Auctus (An Enhanced Magic Novel Book 2) by Sam Cheever New Release!
Auctus…Augment: A portal protector and her baby gargoyle, a guardian daemon, a hellhound, and a witch. Together, they must survive in a strange land filled with unknown monsters. Combined they must be strong enough to defy an elite group of magical terrorists. They are Auctus, augmenting the magic flowing through her world…but will they be enough?
I’m Glynn Forester. I’m Magis. More. Recently, in an attempt to save my friends and home from the Body, a group of elite magical terrorists, I accidentally dragged them all through the portal I’m charged with protecting. We ended up in a place where monsters thrive and nothing is familiar. Survival is our first order of business. I need to figure out how to provide food, clothing, and shelter to the people I brought with me.
Though the power of this new place sings through my veins, filling me with magical purpose, I’m in way over my head. I don’t know how to take care of so many people. I was barely scraping by just taking care of myself and Boyle, my baby gargoyle.
And then there’s Hawk, a powerful daemon guardian whose touch turns my bones to goo. And Nicht, his faithful Hellhound, who is fierce and deadly, unless he’s giving a certain baby gargoyle horsey-back rides across my living room.
How am I going to keep my people safe? How will I save my friends who we were forced to leave behind? What will I do about the Body? And the portal? And Grams? And…so much more?
One thing is clear. My relatively safe, slightly boring little world is gone, gone, gone. And I am up to my eyeballs in challenges I have no idea how to meet.
This should be interesting.
