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.
