Yesterday, while I was running, Otis decided he needed to be as close to me as possible and wedged himself between the treadmill and the wall. When I was cooling off, he climbed on the treadmill with me. Poor doggo is nervous with all the packing. #BFC #BookFitnessChallenge

Caterina Sweetheart! 😍😭 Our dog gets very nervous about packing too and keeps us in sight at all times, whether it's packing for a move or just a trip! 8mo
wanderinglynn Aw, poor baby. ❤️🐶 But great job working out when you‘re packing! 8mo
BookwormAHN Poor doggy, great job exercising 👏🏻 8mo

I hate taking selfies with a passion... but Bella loves to pose for a picture. Except here I think she just wants me to go back to reading so she can sleep. Hope you feel better soon!

This is not book related-sorry. This is Mason. He‘s basically a hospice dog. Unfortunately based on a certain black dogs behavior, he‘s probably not staying. I knew having a kid working for the humane society would be a problem. What was I supposed to say to “Mom, if we don‘t take him, they‘re gonna put him down!” 🤷‍♀️

Redwritinghood Poor baby! 💕💕 13mo
CocoReads @Redwritinghood he‘s very sweet. Hopefully the dog we already have will chill the f out. Right now they‘re lying next to each other but feeding time could be a problem. Ours has already gotten territorial over the food bowls. 13mo

Please continue to send mo your thoughts, prayers, and love. We transferred him to a speciality hospital in Pittsburgh after his second blood transfusion. 💕🐶💕 (that‘s my sister-in-law in the pic).

JoScho Thanks for the update-thought about you guys on the way to work this morning. They are probably better suited to help him there. Sending love. 1y

I haven't been reading as much this week. We had to put our old dog to sleep. She was almost 17 years old and it wasn't unexpected. But still sad. Goldie was such a sweet girl.

@DGRachel I‘m sorry to hear about your fur baby. I hope that you find out good news and that he gets to come home soon! In the meantime I hope this picture of Boo cheers you up! Boo belongs to my Uncle and is the absolute sweetest. I was dog sitting one day and apparently this is how she likes to lay 🤣 I got a chuckle out of it so I hope you do as well! #dogsoflitsy
