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.
