Office Al Fresco!

Relaxing in the Summer Breeze

Office al fresco, what the heck does that mean? Miss Penny speaking, it means Susan has moved her office outside on the balcony. It’s pretty cool watching the windsurfers and sailboats on the river except when our upstairs neighbour chucks a bucket of water on their balcony, I’m not kidding it’s like a waterfall, not that I’ve ever seen a waterfall I’m repeating what Susan said, except I’ve omitted some unsavoury words. Psst! Oh yes, prim and proper Susan can swear when she gets mad, I have to cover my delicate ears. Back to al fresco. I like to peer through the hole and watch the people on the ground; they look about my size from up here. The breeze is nice and cool as it flutters through my fur. Well, actually there is no fluttering at the moment; I have matts. Not the kind you step on, but the kind that twists and knots in my furry coat. Susan tries to

I need a hair cut!

brush me but I’m naughty and won’t stay still. Well, it tickles and pulls and hurts when she gets to the matted undercoat. Do you know what she does next? She snips with the scissors; she snippety-snips through the matts—now I’m lob-sided. I look a mess and the groomer can’t see me for three weeks. If Susan keeps snip, snipping I’ll have no coat left and you know what that means. Buzzzzzzzz! That’s the sound of the electric clippers as the groomer shaves me naked. I tell you I am not looking forward to that. But for now I’ll enjoy the Office Al Fresco and watching Susan write, although she’s not doing much these days. Of course, she should be in

Susan’s mum granny Betty Celebrates 100 years June 21st. She’s amazing.

England preparing her mother’s 100th birthday party, but this corona thing is still around so she can’t go and is trying to arrange things within the British corona guidelines from the other side of the Atlantic Ocean. It’s not working too well and poor Granny is so disappointed. I feel so sorry for her. This bl**dy corona thing! See, even I’m swearing now. I’d hand you over to Susan, but she doesn’t have much to say. It has been a stressful week so maybe I’ll just sign off. Maybe you could just have a look or a read of one her books, she’d like that. Stay safe, everyone.

My Pink Baby!

I love my pink baby, Miss Penny speaking. I have no idea why it is called a baby. I’m guessing Susan gave it that name. Picture one is getting ready for bed, it always comes to bed with us and Susan teases me and hides it under the covers. She gets quite snippy if I put it on her pillow, while she gets ready for bed. I get this look, it’s supposed to chastise, I don’t pay attention. Then, she picks it up with her fingers, as though it’s going to bite or something and throws my poor baby on my pillow (yes, I have my own pillow) and says it’s dirty and smelly. It’s not smelly. It has a well-chewed aroma. There have been comments about it being washed. Now that will upset me, I might have to chew a shoe or throw-up on the bed if she does that. Oh, and you may notice my flowing coat or overflowing coat, we haven’t been to the groomers yet.

Not much going on here, we’re still isolated and this corona thing is still hovering over us. Susan had to cancel her trip to the UK for her Mum’s 100th. I know she’s sad, but psst! I’m not because I miss her when she’s gone. As far as writing is concerned nothing new, Susan is in the thinking phase. That means she has lots of ideas percolating in her head. She’s still writing the romance, but I have a feeling something big is coming. Well folks, humans and canines, that’s it for this week. Happy reading and if you have a minute, go check out the new cover for The Blue Pendant, Susan says more changes are coming.

Oatmeal and Yogurt!

Sticky Ears

What do you think of my photo? Miss Penny speaking, I look pretty wild, you’ll notice I have oatmeal and yogurt in my ears. Oh yes, and I’m chewing one of Susan’s socks. I can be a picky eater, and then Susan worries I’m getting sick. She says yogurt is good for my tummy. Psst! I play on it a bit. If I don’t eat, she gives me really nice stuff like yogurt, but I only like it with maple syrup. And the oatmeal, well, oatmeal I can take it or leave it, if it’s warm it’s okay. I do like warm food, especially gravy, I don’t get that often. The sloppy stuff gets in my ears and chin, especially while my coat is so long. I can tell by Susan’s face that I’m a mess, I don’t care; it smells good and sometimes there’s a snack tucked

At my best!

away at the end of my ears. It’s awkward to get to though. Here’s a message to my canine friends, I hear this corona thing is easing a bit and the groomers are allowed to open, so you know what that means, baths and clippers. No more flowing fur, not that mine is flowing, it’s kind of tangled and lumpy and hurts a bit where the knots pull, Susan tries to brush but I resist. I thought I’d never admit this, but I am looking forward to a bath and a hair cut. Susan wants one too, but I’m not sure she’d fit in Joni’s tub and she is definitely too big for the grooming table. Have you ever noticed that humans only have hair on their heads – strange, very strange!  Susan is in design mode, designing new covers for her books, a bit of writing is happening, not that much. The latest Katie story is progressing slowly and I see scribbles for a new historical novel. Now that is exciting. Well, folks, humans and canines, that’s it for this week. Stay safe enjoy the long weekend and read lots of books, particularly Susan’s books. The Blue Pendant Book 1 of the Sackville Hotel Trilogy will be on sale on Amazon in a few days.

Zooming!

As you know I’m a dog, sort of and when it suits me, Miss Penny speaking. Now, I’m a smart dog, we all know that. I can’t talk, not yet at least, but one day I’ll surprise Susan and answer her. Hee! Wouldn’t that be fun? Okay, back to my point. It’s the word zoom that has me confused. I am known to zoom around the park, zoom up a tree following squirrels, well not quite I get stuck at the bottom. The cars zoom by on Carling Avenue and Susan zooms into me when she’s taking pictures. Here’s my question, how can Susan have a zoom meeting? That’s what she’s doing today, having a Zoom meeting with the Historical Writing Ladies. No, they don’t zoom down the road nor do they zoom in the park and they certainly don’t chase squirrels up a tree; mind you, there’s a thought, they are taller than me and might catch a squirrel. I can’t say I’ve ever seen Susan climb a tree. However, pictures are involved because their pictures appear on Susan’s laptop; moving talking pictures. Now, this is very disconcerting. I know these ladies; they come to the house and drink tea, eat cakes and talk about writing, which involves petting me and sharing the cake with me. Do you see what I’m saying? If they are inside Susan’s laptop, Zooming, I can hear them but I don’t get petted and I don’t get cake. Does this have something to do with the corona thing? I guess so, Susan is nodding yes and it is time to tell you what she’s been up to this week.

The Amazon ad thing continues and that’s getting boring. But, this is exciting, Susan has designed a new cover for The Blue Pendant and if her readers like it she’ll redesign the other covers for the Sackville Hotel Trilogy (she already did a new cover for the box set). My parting wish today is for mothers, my own mom lives in Quebec.

So here’s a big Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers.

This Corona Thing!!

She bathed me!

It’s getting to me, this corona thing, Miss Penny Speaking. Until now it has been great Susan stays at home writing away, I get lots of cuddles and some very interesting conversations. Psst! I am an intelligent dog, almost human, but there are times I am not quite sure what she’s saying but as I’m not expected to answer it’s okay and the keywords for me are the names of the people I love and walk, dinner, treat and come-on-up. The last word is usually spoken when we have visitors. However, because of this corona thing we don’t have visitors. The other day one of my very favourite people knocked on the door. I knew Sheila was behind the door; I heard her voice. A conversation continued with Susan, but the door stayed closed. Then, now I’m all excited, the door opened slightly, not even enough for me to squeeze through and

I know you’re there!

I’m pretty good at nipping out, but not this time. An envelope passed through the crack and poof the door was shut again. Now that is not fair! And another thing, Susan said I was getting smelly, I thought I smelled good, a proper doggy smell, (I kind of waffle between canine and human, whichever suits me at the time). Her constant comments that I was stinky should have clued me in that I was destined for a bath. Sure enough, in the sink I go, no point in wriggling away as Susan catches me every time, so I put up with it. Now Susan cuddles me and tells me I smell nice. I miss my friends and family and I know we all do. I will be glad when this corona thing is over. 

Susan has had some success from her new Amazon ads and you will notice a new cover for the trilogy, one of my favourite people, Rose, helped her, over the computer so I didn’t get to visit. I miss Rose too.
