Mission Accomplished!

I’ve had enough of this weather, Miss Penny speaking, snow and more snow. Do you have any idea how cold it is to walk with bare paws in snow? And, if it’s not cold snow it’s stinging, burning wet salt, creeping in between my paw pads. Susan tries to help by putting socks on my paws, but I look like a right narna with happy face socks; they feel weird and I try to kick them off. Adding insult to injury Susan laughs as I kick my back legs calling me a donkey. Donkey, indeed! Did I mention the cold? At eight pounds, I don’t have much fat on me so even with my coat on, and there’s another story, I’m cold and shiver. But Susan makes me walk, cruelty it is. Eight pounds or not I can sit on my haunches and dig my heels in and nothing can move me. Then, I lift one paw, pull my ears close to my face and look up with sad, hurt eyes. Hee, hee! That does it. She picks me up and if I wind up the shivering, Susan cuddles me and carries me home to our nice warm condo. Mission accomplished. Now, I can curl up in my bed and snooze while Susan works. BIG News!

Traitor!

Susan called me a traitor. I am crushed. Innocent me, a traitor? Miss Penny speaking. Now, I was in a difficult position, Rose, my other favourite person was visiting and stayed the night. What is a little dog to do? Rose gets in bed in the study and Susan is in her bed. At first I wondered back and forth, then I sat on Susan’s bed thinking. Why can’t they sleep in the same place, I like my pack altogether; I’m a dog remember, I don’t admit that often. Finally, I jumped down and snuggled up with Rose. I must have nodded off because when Susan got up in the morning she was upset. Actually, Susan has been a bit cranky lately, I notice she’s not writing. Oh, there’s another book coming almost edited, cover design is next. The third book in the Lavender Cottage series. Maybe you can help with the title. Susan can’t decide between Truth or Lies and Believing Her Lies – Click here with your choice. Here’s a brief synopsis. “Katie and Piers love each other but struggle with doubt. A jealous woman tries to get between them by feeding, vulnerable Katie with lies and innuendoes. Piers’ late wife intervenes from the grave.” If you ask me, and I’m privy to the whole story, it’s about time these two tied the knot. I can’t give anything away but some events in this novel are surprising and we expect romance novels to have a happy ending. 

Sorry, what was that? When is my blog coming? Good question, but as Susan thinks I’m a traitor, I’m lying low for a while.

The Vet!

Miss Penny speaking. What an experience! I am still quaking in my boots, and you know what I think of boots, although they do keep my paws warm—don’t tell Susan. Sorry, back to quaking. On Tuesday we went for a car ride, I’m not too keen on the car either, but in view of Susan’s recent and long absence, I’ll put up with the car as long as we are together. I was okay until we drove up to…the Liston Animal Hospital. As soon as I saw the sign, I knew I was in trouble.

First, I started shivering, I was ignored and plonked on this wobbly ‘thing’ to get weighed, 3.4 kg, Good, nice and trim I thought but I increased the quaking, and got a few ‘Ahs’, but not enough for us to leave. So, I quaked some more. Then, a nice man with a kind face called my name. At last, someone cared. Well, was I fooled. He took us into this room and put me on a cold steel table and started prodding me and sticking his fingers in my mouth. Everyone laughs at my teeth, I have too many. As if that wasn’t enough he’s talking to Susan as though I’m not even there. Then, he sticks needles in me and Susan didn’t stop him. Can you believe that? Now, I am shaking so hard, I thought I might lose some of my teeth until finally we left and drove home. Susan said it was for my own good so I don’t get sick and this happens every year. Well, we’ll see about that! Susan says to tell you, she has some book news coming soon and my website will be up very soon. About time!

She’s Home!

SEE IF I CARE! 

Phew! At last Susan is home, Miss Penny speaking. Rose and I were out walking one day and I thought I heard Susan’s voice calling me, “Pen-Pen,” Susan’s pet name for me and then I saw this woman walking towards me. Could it be? Was it? Yes, it was Susan. I was beside myself and ran around in circles and peed; I just couldn’t stop myself and peed again. Finally, Susan picked me up, it felt so good to have her home. However, now I have another problem. I like being with Rose and Pierre, so now I miss them. I had a brilliant idea and suggested we all live together. It seemed they didn’t agree. As that will not happen, it is

MY NONCHALANT LOOK!

time for me to sulk. First, I stopped wagging my tail, then I didn’t eat my supper. Susan tried to play with me but I ignored my toys. She picked me up and whispers in my ear; I love that, but I didn’t smile or lick her face (not that that is allowed) I was nonchalant, but secretly soaking up all the loving. I kept that up for two days and then I had to eat; I gobbled down the chicken and even cleaned my dish of kibble. So, it was game over and I stopped sulking. But I stay very close to Susan. She is not getting away again. Before Christmas Susan said she was making me a new blog with my own domain. Where is it? I’m told to be patient it’ll be here at the end of the month.

Searching for Susan

I am worried, Miss Penny Speaking, Susan disappeared a long, long time ago. I’m okay Rose is taking good care of me but where is Susan? I am out searching, I even wore my boots, which I hate, even though they are neat as they look like sneakers. I have a red pair but I hide them in my bed along with any socks I can find. If I have to walk on cold salty sidewalks so can Rose and Pierre, hee, hee! I have quite a stash of stuff in my bed; I found a tea towel the other day. If I can’t find Susan then I’ll find things to comfort me. And I don’t have my new blog. This is very serious. If you find Susan, please send her home. Go to her website and message me.

Fishy Business!

I hope you haven’t forgotten me, Miss Penny Speaking, Susan has not written my blog for three weeks and she has disappeared. Really she’s gone! Not a peep, not a word; every time the doorbell rings, ‘Is that Susan?’. ‘No, she left me for real this time.’ I am living with Rose and Pierre sharing my life with fish. You heard fish! Pierre has an aquarium and the fish swim all day. Kind of boring, they don’t even have any toys. Pierre cleaned the tank and they put the fish in a bucket of water. I just nonchalantly poked my nose in the bucket and suddenly the big shark, Jaws is its name, flew in the air. It opened its mouth, I could see teeth coming right at me. I ran, I almost barked I was so scared (I don’t bark that scares me too). Now, I’m embarrassed because everyone laughed. Jaws is back in its clean tank. I miss Susan and I think something fishy is going on, perhaps she’s been kidnapped. If you see her tell her I’m at Rose’s!

Mom’s Visit

Yesterday was both exciting and traumatic, Miss Penny Speaking. Kathleen and Lila, (my mom) came to visit. I got so excited I peed and Susan was mad with me. My mom is a very nervous type; she has had a hard life. They rescued her from a horrible place called a puppy farm when she was pregnant with me. Kathleen took her in and looked after her and then I was born, I had brothers and sisters who all went to nice forever homes and my mom stayed with Kathleen and I came to live with Susan. After the ladies had tea, Kathleen took us for a ride in her new car. I hate the car; they tied me up in the back with my mom. I whined and kicked up a fuss, which upset my mom. Then Kathleen and Susan left us in a parking lot. Can you believe that? Susan went into a store and Kathleen went into a restaurant to pick up supper. By the time they returned, I was frantic and then I, sweet little me, got into trouble again for upsetting my mom, who was shaking and trembling. Poor Mom, she never completely got over the puppy farm. I’m so lucky to have Susan. Psst! Don’t tell her I said that. I’ve heard rumblings about training and discipline, not sure what discipline means but it doesn’t sound like fun. Now, this is quite worrisome, Susan is not writing at the moment, although I have seen evidence of WW1 research, which could mean she is preparing to start a new Sophie book. Oh, Susan said to tell you Kobo has some specials, see below and to  remind you that everyone is invited to join Susan for her presentation on Dec 7th 1:30 – 5pm  pop in or stay a while.

All Mine!

Miss Penny Speaking, and speaking rather fast, because I am excited. You will never guess what Susan has done, she bought me a present. No, it’s not a toy or a ball, although I could do with a new ball I lost my pink one somewhere, oops like I said I’m talking too fast. Susan bought me a domain name, MissPennySpeaking .com and that means that I will have my very own blog/website. How cool is that? But don’t click yet as Susan has to build the website. Does that mean she has to go to one of those home building places for bricks and drywall? Susan does a lot of things but I’ve never seen her with a hammer or screwdriver. Actually, that is scary. Susan tells me websites are built inside laptops. Um! That’s weird, but what do I know I’m a dog, sort of. Anyway, I am very excited but it might be awhile as Susan is crazy busy selling books.

Go see her today at the Jack Purcell Centre at the Small Press Book Fair. Noon – 5 pm  320 Jack Purcell Lane, Ottawa. You can browse all her books, perfect gifts especially the Christmas at Lavender Cottage, such a warm romantic story. Yup, I’m a romantic too, and it’s packed with Christmas recipes including shortbread and there will be samples. Jungles bells, jingle bells… I am so happy I’m singing! Bye for now!

A New Pink Coat

It’s cold -5c, Susan said, and I didn’t believe her. Miss Penny speaking, even with my sweater on, which I hate, and it didn’t help much. Especially when I had to stick my butt in the snow for you-know-what. I shivered all the way around the block until Susan picked me up and cuddled me. Then she disappeared, I hate being left alone too, but she bought me a new coat. At first I sulked but this morning we walked to the park and I never shivered once. It is very smart, bright pink for a princess-dog, a fur-trimmed hood and a cozy fur lining (faux fur)

 

 

Except it had this label that said  For cats too, WHAT! Cats in coats, unbelievable!

 

 


Susan? Oh well, she’s been quiet this week, planning a new writing workshop, How to Write a Nonfiction Book for Your Business now that is changing gears from fiction.

Remembrance Day! I love history but not always the effect it has on people. Researching WW1 for Prelude to Sophie’s War I became painfully aware of the stubbornness of powerful men that took so many lives, not just soldiers but innocent Londoners. Prelude to Sophie’s War tells of those innocent lives changed forever. https://books2read.com/u/mg0dpx

Sticky Burrs!

Have you heard of ‘burrs’ or perhaps I should say felt burrs, Miss Penny speaking? They are little round things covered in hooks, the seeds of the Burdock plant, and they stick to everything including me. During our walk the other day I got covered in them. I had one hanging from my face, several in my paws. Susan pulls them out and that stings a bit, but I know it’s for the best. But, we missed one. I was in agony with this thing digging into my tummy. It twisted into my fur so the fur pulled every time I moved and the little hooks of the burr dug into my skin. I hardly had a wink of sleep as it was morning before Susan found it. She had to cut it out. Oh, what a relief! Can you guess what happened next? Yep, the groomers! Kind of like adding insult to injury. Now, I’m cold, I had a lovely long coat, but it was getting mattered and those burrs were a problem. Although I say it myself, I look glamorous. Susan’s catching up with admin work and getting ready for the Small Press Book Fair, signings to finish the year off.
