Seriously? Seriously.

The seriously generous Michael Offutt gave me a puppy! Isn't he cute? I've named him Piers.

Now, Piers isn't just an ordinary dog. Quite the contrary. He's a genius. And genii require things that will stimulate their brains. So, pertaining to Piers' needs, I've composed a small list of books, films, and television shows.

Treat #1: Fallout by Ellen Hopkins. I love her novels. She's a very creative poet and she's not afraid to approach hard topics. I can't wait until her next novel, Perfect, comes out in September.

Treat #2: Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher. To see how all the tapes came together excited me as a writer. To see the emotional responses of the main character moved me as a reader.

Treat #3: The Nanny. My guilty pleasure. It may not be exactly 'stimulating', but every genius could use a laugh now and then.

Treat #4: The Voice. It's an interesting concept. They choose their contestants by their voice without ever looking at them. They judge by talent not appearance.

Treat #5: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 and 2. They put more detail into these last two movies since they were trying to stretch them out. Personally, I wished they would have done the same with the earlier movies.

The rest of Piers' litter mates could also use homes and I know a few people who might like a [genius] puppy.
  1. Madeline Bartos
  2. Teralyn Rose Pilgrim
  3. Bess Weatherby
  4. Charity Bradford
  5. Trisha


  1. Was there a famous author that inspired the name Piers or was it completely random? Just curious.

  2. *hides from the Puppeh* I am not so much a dog person...I'm too lazy for dogs. LOL.

    Thank you so much for the award! ;) I'll answer to it asap!

  3. Awe! He's so cute, and I love puppies! Thanks Brooke. I think I'll combine this one with a meme I got tagged in and post it Friday.

  4. i love the twist with this award. great job!
    but the real treat is if he's house broken =)

  5. Congratulations on your award.

    I used to watch "The Nanny".

    5 and 6 definitely could've been longer movies.
