To enter, just complete all the easy entries on the Rafflecopter on the bottom of this page. Today let's hear from author Leona Pence and what she's thankful for:

Puppy Love

 I’ve had so many good things happen this past year; it’s hard to choose just one. My rescue Spaniel-mix named Luna just looked at me with big brown eyes so full of unconditional love. Yes, I consider her a blessing in spite of all her costly doggie antics. There is now a nice 6-foot wooden privacy fence around my back yard because a shorter chain-link fence couldn’t contain her. I’m thankful she only dug under the new fence one time. I’ve lost count of all the shoes, power cords, TV remotes, etc. that she’s destroyed, but that’s all in her puppy past. And the new throw-rug covers the big hole in my bedroom linoleum quite nicely.

 She appeared to be deaf when I first got her, but it turned out that she had a bad ear infection in both ears. Her owner had taken her and two siblings to a vet to be euthanized and I’m thankful the vet intervened and sent them to a rescue shelter. I fell in love with her when my granddaughter brought her here. Luna sleeps on my bed and spends most evenings lying beside me while I use my laptop computer. I call her Woona half the time. She doesn’t seem to mind.

I get a lot of pleasure watching her play with Jax, my daughter’s small black dog. They both help take the monotony out of being in a wheelchair all day long. Unconditional love is exactly what I feel for her. (and Jax too).

Leona Pence is a widowed mother of four children and a lifelong resident of Illinois. She started reading romance novels as a teen. She graduated from Nancy Drew stories to Harlequin Romance, and then to her favorite author, Barbara Cartland and her vast Regency romance collection. Happy endings were a must.

Leona began writing late in life after the death of her husband of forty-four years. They married on her 19th birthday after a three month courtship – and yes – love at first sight really did happen.

She enjoys reading, writing, and especially being a Mentor in F2K, a free online writing course.
