Book Sales and the Brothers

The female had a wonderful time signing books at Gulfport's Get Rescued. The event was primarily for pet rescues to showcase animals who need loving homes. The street fair had a lot of foot and paw traffic!

Lots of two- and four-legged visitors!

The female was so pleased that ten books found loving homes! Not only that, she heard that several of the rescues were adopted at this event. That's something to celebrate!

When she got home, the female found Lance and Ringo had hardly noticed that she left. The brothers were busy just being themselves.
