Cover Girls

Abby Lab here. Mom's next book cover drafts are out.  She's been so busy working on it that she totally forgot Dory's Halloween Pawty, but we intend to crash it in the comments and have fun with everyone.

We know the "l" in "lab" needs to be capitalized in the author info but Mom likes how it turned out.

The photo used to make the front cover is a barn near where Mom and Barkley lived in Indiana. She was thinking of buying the land to build a house when she met Dad, and the rest is history.


  1. Looks like the book is progressing well! But we think you need some treats to make up for all that no-dog time.

  2. good luck with the book.

  3. Very cool!!! We can't wait until your Mama's new book comes out!! Don't worry about the pawty...we actually think you may make a guest appearance or two!!
    See ya there!
    Dory, Jakey, Arty & Bilbo
