Of puppy memes, oranges and movie rights

I found the puppy meme on Patricia Wood's blog. You remember her, right? I posted last year about the stellar launch of her novel, Lottery. Well, I hoofed it over there to congratulate her on two new triumphs in what has been a breathtaking authorial debut: she has been long listed for the Orange Prize for fiction (YEAH!) and... and... This is too much. Let me take another deep breath: Sarah Michelle Gellar has bought the movie rights to her book!

How about that, eh??!!

Congratulations, Patricia. You done good.

And now for the meme... What breed of puppy are you? I'm a German shepherd, they say. Seems I'm a bit more - um - assertive than I imagined.

You Are a German Shepherd Puppy

Intelligent, quick witted, and a bit aggressive.

You've got the jaw power to take a bite out of anyone you choose.

Oh wow, she's done brilliantly.

Are they Rottweilers? They are rather cute at that size... not sure about when they are 120lbs!

I realized from reading your comment that I didn't name the breed in my post. Corrected!

They're German shepherds. That's a breed I happen to love; they're beautiful, loyal and affectionate - and very, very protective.

I am Aggressive, wild, and rambunctious but deep down, I am just a cuddle monster.

I am a Boston Terrier Puppy :)

Congratulations to Patricia Wood!
