Christmas Time Duty

Here are some pictures of me on duty as door greeter at church. I enjoy bringing smiles to everyone’s face and show them what unconditional love is really like.dsc00085 dsc00086 dsc00088

Living in a small town atmosphere is great. I had lived my first two years in California before moving to Quakertown. ( I am now 13).  What some of you may take for granted that I notice is how quaint things are here. I love the celebrations that Quakertown Alive put on.  The tree lighting , the parades and the Arts Alive and Autumn Alive are all fun community things. During the Holiday season the meters are covered in town so people can patronize the downtown shops without feeding a meter.  Music plays from the bank in town on the hour. I love the little stands of fruits and veggies that people put out in front of their house AND they use the honor system. ( Never would work in LA ,Ca. )dsc00406 My all time favorite which I can now say in public since the jewelry store has closed was Kulp Jewelers use to prop his front door open during the summer months.  My human says it’s like living in Mayberry. ( Wherever THAT is). Here’s a picture of me judging the pet parade.   Having lived elsewhere has made me appreciate these things. I also love the “at home” businesses  in the area.  Beauty shops, repair businesses, many kinds of things can be found in a friendly at home atmosphere. Sure there are some troublesome areas in any town but I am happy to say I never see them.  Thank You humans for making Quakertown and it’s surrounding towns such a nice place to be.  Love and Happy New Year, M.J.

Every dog wants and needs a purpose in life. This is one of mine. I enjoy making people smile and feel good just by looking at me. I enjoy all the petting too. it’s like everywhere I go there’s a doggy massage parlor. I have many outfits  for the year. As you can see this is my elf outfit. I also have a Santa suit and then a winter dress with snowman to wear AFTER the Christmas season. We were at the hospital today and the folks loved us. This is the first year we added flashing lights to my sleigh. I wanted to add a video but it won’t let me add it to my blog so I guess I will just put me on facebook.  Love to all my fans,  MJ (and brandy too)

MY IDEA OF THE DAY                                                       

Yes folks this is what I thought would happen on Thanksgiving. The house was smelling great and then it happened. Folks ,she sent me to the daycare with the other dogs and we stayed out there while the humans ate all the food. I was so disappointed.  I am going to have to plan and be better prepared for  the Christmas dinner.  Love M.J.

I am happy  to say  we now have over 4000 friends signed up for my words of wisdom. Who knew that humans cared so much what a dog has to say.  I would like to share a complaint about Thanksgiving Day.  The house was smelling great with wonderful smells of food. Just as I was thinking what a great day was ahead for us my human took all of us dogs out to the daycare and left us there while other humans showed up and ate my food! Oh, she threw a couple pieces on the floor for us when we came back inside but it wasn’t the day I had planned. Emotions are a tough thing for a dog to handle. One thing makes me happy the other makes me sad. Love M.J.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMitzi Jo sad

My new book is now available on Amazon  and also in Kindle. Here are some pictures of me at a book event in Pottsville last weekend. I got to meet Curious George this year and I sold 22 books! 6 books of each book one and book two and 10 of my newest release. 3 people came and bought my 3rd book because they had bought the first 2 at last years event. I guess that means they liked them! Love to all,  M.J.img_20161105_111008231_hdr img_20161105_120411105_hdradcover

 in trouble for teasing dogs

in trouble for teasing dogs

I am SO sorry it’s been a month since I posted. I have been busy helping my illustrator get our 3rd book completed. I am giving you a sneak peak at a couple of pictures. These are my friends  Suzy and her son, Sam squirrel. I will post to let you know when they are on Amazon

I was enjoying a nice quiet moment under the bed away from all the other dogs and the fan was blowing on me. I wiggled myself in a bit farther then I normally do. ( It’s a king size bed.) I could hear that momma  Jean was getting ready to walk out the door because the other dogs were barking in the front room. I attempted to join them and found out I was stuck under the bed. I decided to call my  human to get her attention. Momma Jean heard my muffled little bark coming from the bedroom. We have a special connection of understanding each others behaviors. She knew this was not normal for me. I would be rushing the door to go along. Momma Jean found me under the bed and reached under and turned me on my side and dragged me out that way. Humiliating but it worked. Sorry no picture of the event. She was too worried about me but later she thought it was funny. (I still don’t though)  Love M.J.Mitzi Jo sad

These are pictures of my human. She saw I posted yesterday and didn’t mention what happened to her. She was buying a new low calorie/carb drink in the alcohol section of the grocery store and when checking out the clerk asked for her ID. (There is no living with her now). Was the clerk a blind person? My human is going to be 63 this month! I had her buy that shirt. It says. ” I don’t care who dies in the movie as long as the dog lives.”  She wants me to tell you she has lost just over 51 pounds and wants to loose 5 more before maintaining.  She is doing  Take Shape for Life. It uses the Medifast plan. The first picture is her before the weight loss from 2 years ago.. Love M.J.

I asked my dog friends to pose for a picture for you. That is me in the back on the left. Sorry I haven’t posted in a while but my human is getting a bit lazy about this. SHe has been working on her weight doing the Medifast food  and she has more energy so she isn’t sitting at the computer like she use to.  I am still waiting on the pictures to complete our 3rd book in print.  When it is done you will be the first to know.  Love to all  M.J.dogs in daycare shot
