The Princess Lenore a/k/a The Love Dog a/k/a The Hound of Love entered my heart five for six years ago during one of the loneliest and coldest winters of my life. She has gone on to become a warrior for love, star of children's and adults books, and friend to countless thousands of people. She brings light and love. I love the Red Dog, he has entered my life in a profound way, but nothing will replace the sweet power of the Love Dog. She kept love alive for me, and I will never forget it.
There is no love quite like Lab Love.
Lenore will be with me Tuesday at 7 p.m. at Battenkill Books, Cambridge, N.Y. to help me kick off the "Dancing Dogs" book tour and also celebrate publication of "Lenore Finds A Friend," my second children's book.
The event will include a reading from me (brief), a talk and Q & A and a signing. Next Saturday, October 29, I will be at Northshire Books, Manchester Vt., also at 7 p.m. Reading, talk and signing.
