An Unexpected Day!

Don’t I look good? Miss Penny speaking, a day at the spa, that’s what Susan calls it, more like a day in the torture chamber. Susan says I’m being dramatic. Maybe I am, but it was a challenging day. First there was a car ride to Rose’s, and get this… when I arrived Preston the big lab who belongs to Frank’s family in Stittsville, was sucking up to Pierre. What’s he doing here? I asked. His family have gone away to Italy. I feel sorry that they have abandoned him but he’s nuzzling in on my territory and I can tell Pierre’s affections are divided. I’m the princess here and I need more than half. I guess I can share for a while. Susan went off with Rose and when they got back, they then took me to the groomers. The nice thing about Pet Agree in Kanata is all the other dogs and look at me I am beautiful. By the time we got home I was exhausted. I’ve no idea what Susan is doing in the writing world, I’m too tired to care today. I think she’s working on a new title and new cover for the second edition of Save Some for Me.

Left Behind… Again!

Huh! See if I care! Miss Penny Speaking. What am I doing with the cushion? Making my opinion known; Susan left me behind last weekend. She went to Romancing the Capital, a writers thing. I stayed with my favourite people Rose and Pierre. Psst! Don’t tell Susan but I really like it there. When we got home Susan had some interesting books, not writing she was reading. The covers had photos of awesome, bare chested guys on the front and her eyes got wider and wider as she turned the pages, rather quickly I might add. Now, I’m a dog so what do I know about romance. Susan muttered, “Really! unbelievable!” not sure what was in those books and perhaps I’m too young to know. Life has settled back to normal, Chewing the cushion makes me feel better, you’ll note I’ve done it before. I don’t let Susan out of my sight. Thank goodness she’s been home all week writing, the third book of The Narrowboat Romance Series is coming along nicely, I hasten to add Susan’s books don’t have sexy men on the cover. Ah, maybe they should and she’d sell more. No, it’s not Susan’s thing. I almost forgot, check out Ruins in Silk, there is a big connection to Susan’s new book and it is Free as an ebook.

Miss Penny’s Photo Gallery!

It is too hot to think, Miss Penny speaking, so for this weeks blog I thought I’d do a photo gallery of me. Starting with yesterday when Susan set up her summer office on the balcony. I’m snoozing in my bed, giving Susan a nod of approval as she moves the plants and chairs from one place to the other. It must be a people thing because everything finished up where it started. 

 

When I was young!

Interesting Me!

Bones – Episode 2

Do you like the title? Miss Penny Speaking, I think Susan’s writing talent is rubbing off on me as the bone story continues. It is summer and hot, very hot, so Susan and I work on the balcony, nine stories high with a gorgeous view of the Ottawa River and a lovely breeze. My bone is a Milkbone, doggy biscuits in the shape of a bone and just my size. I can take them out on the balcony, except there’s a big step and I can’t jump with it on my mouth without dropping it. So, I look cute and wag my happy tail, see the video, and Susan picks me up, but I drop the bone, anyway. It’s times like this that I realize I’m more person than dog. If that is true, then why doesn’t Susan eat Milkbones?  Not sure what Susan has been doing all week, there’s only one new announcement, but here’s one from me my first video. Cute & Happy Dog

Summer Pose!

 Susan has a big announcement, Click here for  Prelude to Sophie’s War is available to purchase. Listen to a free excerpt.

That will do for the promo stuff, it’s interfering with my blog, Miss Penny speaking, you may have noticed that I am rather skinny, Susan calls me wiry… not impressed… I prefer trim and athletic that’s after cute and adorable. The winter can be a challenge as I shiver a lot but I l-o-v-e the summer heat. Susan not so much; she huffs and puffs a lot and the walks are a bit slower than usual, that I don’t mind as the sidewalks can get quite hot on my paws. On the very hot days we don’t go very far. Susan has a table on the balcony where she writes in the hot weather and I have my bed outside and as you can see this is my favourite summer pose. Susan likes the view, it’s too high for me. I like to watch the people come and go in the parking lot and the squirrels run along the wall, I’d like to play but it’s a long way down. I think it’s time for a snooze.

Abandoned Again!

Miss Penny Speaking, can you believe Susan went away…. again! She went to Anne’s cottage on Black Lake for a week of writing. I thought it was pretty neat having an owner who is an author, because it meant Susan was at home most of the day. Right now I’m not so sure as she has been away twice on a writing jaunt in the last month. I don’t understand why I’m not included but I go to Rose and Pierre’s. I love their little backyard and the dog next door and the treats. I mentioned last time, the beds a bit crowded, but I always have someone in touching range. I like to that. I question what Susan was doing at the lake as it seems she hasn’t finished the Katie romance book yet nor has she finished the second edition of Save Some for Me. She tells me it’s close; I reckon there was a lot of napping and chatting going on at the lake and not much writing. What do you think? Wine might be involved too!

Did you notice I’m not in the lake photo. I’m a bit miffed!

Three in a Bed!

I survived the weekend without Susan, Miss Penny Speaking. It was tough, but I can take it. Psst… don’t tell Susan, I had a great time. Rose and Pierre have a little backyard, I can run in and out of without a leash. In the next yard was another little dog. How cool is that? And, we went for walks and I met hundreds of friendly dogs, perhaps not hundreds but there were a lot of new friends. Bedtime was a bit different. At home it’s just Susan and me. I ran upstairs, that’s neat, no stairs at home, Rose put me on the bed and we settled quite comfortably, then Pierre got in bed too—three in a bed—definitely warm and cosy, if a bit crowded. I was in the middle and had to wiggle and push my paws to get enough space. Rose and Pierre didn’t seem to mind although I noticed they were clinging to the edge of the mattress, muttering that they didn’t have much room. I used the sad tearful eyes, missing home, and they were fine. Susan picked me up on Sunday night, of course I was careful not to be too happy, but I was very happy and a little nervous she might leave again. So, that night I tried to sleep on top of Susan, making sure she could not get up and leave. Susan wasn’t too happy about that. I just used the sad eyes guilt trip. Susan says I’m talking too much, she has some messages for you.
