Thanks, Sister Lura. He's the third incarnation of the dog I first knew in this life as Baltho. I'm certain. He's settled right in already. People kept telling me not to expect too much since he's a puppy. But I figured we knew more than they.

He's shown a good appetite. I was told he might not eat anything for a day or so.

The only thing is to help him learn to pee and poop outside, but that will come. It's really frigid here, which doesn't help. But that's due to change on Tues again.

Melkie gets better and better. He pees shortly after stepping foot outside and hardly has any accidents inside. I take him out maybe 20 mins. after he eats solid food, and he poops. He never runs off but follows me around. So we've been walking down the hill and around a third of the little lake behind the house. Tonight I took him outside with Sky and King (the neighbor's pit bull). He stayed with us and followed Sky inside the house on his own. (Getting him to cross the threshold has been a problem.) I wish I could say that King were so well behaved. He ran around out back for I dunno how long, despite my calling and calling.

Sea Weed
 
Hello Britt

Thankyou for the wonderful show on Seaweed...Ironically I had a seaweed snack in my cupboard, and soon as I had the snack ,I started to feel better....I have Hypothyroidism, :) :) so I realize the benefits of Iodine.... are far greater than I had known...I am going to incorporate it in my diet more...

thanks once again...

Yesterday afternoon Melchior's urge to chew on everything in sight really kicked in. My poor hands and wrists, neck, chin--everything he can get his mouth on--have become target of those razor teeth! I've been bleeding every since, in one spot or another. Yikes. I keep pointing out his many chew toys, knotted socks, balls, and whatever else he's found strewn about the floor. I've given him and Sky several little chews.

But the need to chew goes on!

Don't forget to pick up your copy of Baltho, The Dog Who Owned a Man either directly from me (signed or unsigned), on Amazon.com (available in paper and on Kindle), or elsewhere. I'm sure you'll love it.

Thomas Ramey Watson 01-20-2013 01:55 PM

Amazon.com has marked down the price of Baltho considerably to 10.14 and the Kindle to 9.63 USD. Now's a great time to buy. Of course if you want signed memorabilia, you can still buy directly from me at http://www.thomasrameywatson.com/editing/

Please help me disseminate the press release for Baltho.

Ordering books
 
Please ask your local libraries and school libraries (high school, college and university) to order the book for their patrons. I need all the help I can get with book sales and publicity. If you know other good places that might like to interview me, please use the PR sheet above to spread the word. Contact information is there.

Thanks.

My Amazon Baltho sales rank was almost 2 million earlier today. People must have bought a number of copies. It's down to Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #262,049 in Books (See Top 100 in Books) right now. I was getting worried about how far it'd drop. Amazon even lowered the price to $9.69!
