Oh Snickers Dear, I hear my muzzer callin'
From far away, down in the desert sand
She calls me home, to help her with the packing
So we can move, and live near to Graceland
But you are there, in cold and frozen Ioway
And I would stay, with you a little while
So do not bark, and wake up good old Butchy
I'll wait and snooze, til dawn lights up the land.
And then I'll go, and help her with the paaaacking
And you must stay, and help here with the koi
But we will know, when fall comes to this land again
That I'll be closer and I'll be your boy.

The favorite candidate and leading by a large margin is the lovely Miss Snickers.
She is a super duper wirey girl and my best and sweetest squeeze. However...she did not send me my bowl.
And neither did Joe Stains, the barkey boys, or any of the others guessed by my audience.
The person who sent my lovely bowl is my lovely sister E.Rabbit.
Thank you very much E.Rabbit. You may be getting old in people years, but you will always be a pup to me!

"Lemme see this thing? What is in here? Who can have sent it to me? Muzzer! Open this box!"
So muzzer opened it...look who has her nose in it already! I told her in no uncertain terms that bowl belongs to me. After all.....I am the Cardinal fan. She wouldn't know a baseball if it bit her! But we still don't know who sent it. There was no card inside. The return address is only for the company that made this. I pulled all the stuffing out and smelled it, and it didn't smell like anyone I know. Still......I think I know who sent it. Why don't you all guess, and I will tell you my answer on Thursday.

Here are the RULES:
1. Grab the nearest book of 123 pages or more.
2. Open it to page 123.
3. Find the first 5 sentences and write them down.
4. Then invite 5 friends to do the same.
We chose this book for two reasons:
1. My current book is Pokey Little Puppy. It does not have 123 pages.
2. This tag was started by our hooman friend Blue, who lives in the UK. Ruth Rendell is a British writer. It seemed appropriate somehow.
So. The title of our book is Not in the Flesh, written by Ruth Rendell. It is one of a series featuring Chief Inspector Wexford and his pals at the Kingsmarkham Police Force. Here are the first five sentences from page 123
"Old and lonely, she was relishing pouring out her memories to a sympathetic ear. There could be, when he chose, something in Wexford's manner that invited confidences from those who had little opportunity to air their miseries and their grievances. During a quarrel over their respective lifestyles, his daughter Sylvia had said to him. 'You ought to have been a bloody psychotherapist.'
'Well, it looks as if you were successsful as permission was refused.' he said. 'Did anyone else go in there?' "
Muzzer says it is a great book, she highly recommends it, and if she can wrench it away from Dad, she will send it out on loan upon request, since it is currently only available in the UK. US publication is sometime early this summer.
Now, we are s'posed to tag five more people:
We tag: Scruffie, Lacey and Stan
Axel and his Mom
The Whippets and their servant
Joey and Doofus and their mom (we want to know what cook book is good!)
Ivy and BP and their humans. (hmmmm...prolly about human pups)
Thank you all
