Thank goodness I don’t have to wear a mask, Miss Penny speaking, wearing a coat in cold weather is bad enough. Canines are lucky they can’t catch this Covid
thing. In case you don’t know, a canine is a dog, I’m just showing off. But, this Covid thing loves people so everyone must wear a mask to stay safe and stop it spreading and making people very, very sick. Do you know how disconcerting it is not see your face? It might just provoke a growl or a bark, especially if you’re a
stranger, but then it’s best to bark at a stranger anyway. I don’t bark often but if Susan needs protecting I will give a woof maybe two if its really threatening. Have no fear, mask or no mask, my trusty little nose recognizes you. Masks and noses are the point of this blog. Susan is researching for her latest book Heart of Sophie’s War. Even back as far as the Great War, dogs, with their amazing sense of smell sniffed out explosives on the battlefield. What you might not know is
they wore masks to protect them, not from the Covid thing, but from gas poisoning. Yikes! They did look really creepy and how the heck they could sniff through that contraption beats me. But they were very brave dogs and served and protected the soldiers, and still do in war zones today. Just like me protecting Susan, well maybe not quite the same, I do my best to woof occasionally. No evil
eye today as we’ve already mentioned Heart of Sophie’s War, which by the way is on schedule for the early 2021 release.
Finally the 2nd edition of all three of the Lavender Cottage books, both e-book and paperback, are available on Amazon. Sale coming next week, ready for the holiday season, Book 2 Christmas at Lavender Cottage includes Susan’s coveted shortbread recipe. Well, that’s all from me and Susan today. Stay well and stay safe. Cuddles from Miss Penny.
