WhitneyPortraitWhitney and I are back from the Association of Writers and Writing Programs conference in Seattle just in time to prepare for a presentation at a library in the Chicago suburbs tomorrow. A description in this week’s Lake Zurich Courier tells me not to plan on saying much!

Children and adults are invited to meet author Beth Finke’s guide dog Whitney, a Labrador/golden retriever mix, 2-3 p.m. Sunday, March 2 at Ela Area Public Library, 275 Mohawk Trail, Lake Zurich.

More on our successful trip to Seattle in a future blog post. Stay tuned!

Be careful…..I think this is how it started when Diana Ross left the Supremes.

Stop! In the name of love!

Good luck, Whitney. Sounds like you have quite the show to put on.

I think all she has to do is stand there and look cute.

Glad to know you’re back Safe and Sound! Give Whitney a pat for me. Monna

Will do.

Beth – That is hilarious! A typo to be sure but with some truth in it perhaps for the children in the audience..

You’re sweet to think it’s a typo. I’m not so sure!

Just adore that pic of Whitney. She’s a classic beauty of the Elizabethan style. Have fun!

Mike just loves this photo of Whitney, too. Not sure he’d have recognized its Elizabethan style, though!

The dog is always the star!

bethfinke On March 2, 2014 at 10:53 am

Ah, yes.

Don’t let Whitney get uppity!

bethfinke On March 5, 2014 at 6:19 am

Ha! Funny to think she ever would, she’s so nutty. But your friend Wanda agrees with you about Whitney’s ouppity potential –she says after seeing Whitney’s picture she’s trying to decide whether to address my dog as “Your Ladyness” or “Your Royalness”!
