I discovered him (Chubby, that is) happily eating a book I had been reading and had stupidly left on a low table next to the couch. At first I was kind of pissed, but then I couldn't stop laughing when I saw the title:
That's Resley C's--sorry, Kresley Cole's--A Hunger Like No Other, which just won the Rita for Best Paranormal Romance of 2006, among several other distinctions. The dude on the cover (what's left of him, anyway) is a Lykae (werewolf). So I guess Chubbers was just getting in touch with his supernatural cousins in the doggiest way he knew.
Thankfully, I was about 30 pages from the end and was able to finish it without having to reconstruct paragraphs from scraps of paper on the floor. The back cover didn't fare so well. Poor
It was an excellent book, by the way. Chubby gives it two dewclaws up!
