Chairman Bao is a Shih Tzu. We travel a lot. I drive. He watches. We've logged at least 10,000 miles and he's never once said, Sweetheart, don't you think you should stop and ask someone?

Bao's idea of heaven is breakfasting in bed on sausages and crispy bacon, followed by a nap among the feather-filled pillows before his morning walk.
He is loving this part of the book tour. He loves to roll on the cool tiles in the lobby. He loves the grass and the trees and the myriad "messages" left by all the other visiting dogs at this very pleasant and pet-friendly hotel. He loves sitting on his own little chair at our booth and being told he's gorgeous. Bao is having a ball.
I'm enjoying it, too. We're not allowed to actually sell books -- the idea is to allow librarians and booksellers to become familiar with new titles. Later today, I'm participating in an Author Signing in which we autograph and give away up to 100 copies of Sea Changes. I don't mind -- if these people enjoy reading Sea Changes, they'll order additional copies for their stores and libraries. That's the plan, anyhow. And it's difficult to "fail" when you're handing out freebies!
So this morning, we're both happy campers.

Bao's idea of heaven matches mine, but I would avoid the sausages.

Congratulations on such a successful tour.
