TAG! You're It! - Tuesday & The Letter "J"

Welcome to  
TAG! You're It! - Tuesday
where I ask the questions and my guests answer them.  

But that's not all, my guest also gets to tag my next victim. 
This week, Ali Cross has been tagged . . .  
by last week's Sara Larson

My Question:

I've heard there's going to be a new addition to your family soon. Could you tell us a little about that and how he or she will change the dynamics of your quiet and calm world? Have you picked out a name yet? And when can we celebrate the arrival?
Ali's Answer:

YES! And I can even make this (sort of) work into your letter 
for today!

We have an awesome dog, named Jack. He is four years old and we love him so much. However, Jack is sick and we’re not sure how much longer we’ll have him. But as long as we do have him, we want to enjoy every minute. Poor Jack needs a buddy. And, my boys need another little friend to love to help ease the transition between life with Jack and life without Jack. 

We have a great friend who’s teacup Yorkshire Terrier gave birth to one beautiful little puppy several weeks ago. That little puppy has been our puppy since before he was born. He’s eleven weeks old as of yesterday! He is beautiful, spunky and I’m positive Jack will love him! We named him after Joseph Smith’s bodyguard, Porter Rockwell ~ Rocky for short!
He’s being flown in, with his own personal aid (i.e. our friend’s roommate), all the way from Louisiana on May 12—we can’t wait!

Thanks for having me today, Christine! It was fun to talk about something other than writing! We love our animals, like I know you do, so it was sweet to be able to tell a little about Jack and our new little love, Rocky!

And now it's time for Ali to TAG a friend.  

Stacy Henrie
TAG!  You're It! 

Come back next Tuesday to see if Stacy accepts the challenge and to see if you've been tagged.


  1. Aww, poor Jack! and I just want to SQUEE when I see that pic of the lil puppeh :D

  2. Darling puppy! What a fun gift to Jack and a cleaver way to work in the letter J for today.

  3. This was a clever blog. You did a great job.

  4. I'm sorry Jack is sick. :( Losing a pet is so hard. Our dog, Charlie, (a maltese) is pretty old. I hope he has a few more years in him, but I guess you never know. But congrats on that adorable new puppy!

  5. Aw, cute puppy! Sorry that your other dog is sick. =( WE got three baby kittens for the same reason just before our old cat Rugen passed away.

  6. Can't wait to meet the little guy - love the name, too. And thanks for the tag, Ali, I think! :)

  7. Angie ~ 3 kitties for ONE, eh? That's quite the bargain. Your Rugen must have been quite the cat to warrant THREE to replace him.

    Thanks for the doggie love everyone!

  8. It's always great to meet fellow writers and bloggers! I'm stopping by from the A to Z challenge and I look forward to reading more from you.
