A Doggie Senses Dictionary!

A doggie senses dictionary, Miss Penny Speaking. Magic powers, that’s what doggie senses are. I can smell and hear a thousand times better than Susan, hum… maybe not a thousand but a lot. Just this morning I’m curled up in bed waiting for Susan to make the coffee, morning coffee time is cuddle time, when I hear the rustle of a garbage bag. I leap out of bed (such a shock to my system) because garbage bag rustle means

I can sense everything!

Susan is heading to the garbage shoot and if I’m fast; I get to run down the hall. I used to follow Susan, but now I’m lazy and wait for the signs. Footsteps on the step into the living room means either she’s going to the balcony or just to relax in her chair. When she goes the other way towards the bathroom I can stay put unless I hear the drawer on the bathroom vanity, then I panic because she’s putting makeup on and you know what that means? She’s going out. The phone is a bit complicated, there’s one ring that means someone is at the door, ‘Come on up!’ means we have visitors. Now, I have to admit that there are a couple of things that have me very confused. We don’t get many visitors because this corona thing is still going on but sometimes people I know appear in the laptop, but I can’t detect any scent, which throws me off a bit. I hear voices. A few days ago, I was snoozing and I heard Rose’s voice, but she’s nowhere to be seen. Susan picked me up and there she was, in a little box on the screen with other people I don’t know. The next day, I was having a cuddle on Susan’s knee and Nancy’s voice boomed from the laptop and there she was in a little box. There is some magic going on and it’s not just my doggie dictionary.  Oh, here’s the evil eye I’m supposed to tell you what Susan’s been up to. The writing is coming along, Heart of Sophie’s War is up to 10,000 words, Sophie is already in trouble and in danger of being sent home because she was being kind to a shell shocked soldier. Sister Drew is a nasty piece of work. Hee, hee, that’s got you wondering. Good news, at the rate Susan is writing you might be reading this by January.

May I suggest you read Prelude to Sophie’s War while you wait for the sequel – London 1915, German Zeppelin attacks are not the only thing Sophie battles at Bartley Hospital. Will her courage be enough to keep her sane and alive?

Office Al Fresco!

Relaxing in the Summer Breeze

Office al fresco, what the heck does that mean? Miss Penny speaking, it means Susan has moved her office outside on the balcony. It’s pretty cool watching the windsurfers and sailboats on the river except when our upstairs neighbour chucks a bucket of water on their balcony, I’m not kidding it’s like a waterfall, not that I’ve ever seen a waterfall I’m repeating what Susan said, except I’ve omitted some unsavoury words. Psst! Oh yes, prim and proper Susan can swear when she gets mad, I have to cover my delicate ears. Back to al fresco. I like to peer through the hole and watch the people on the ground; they look about my size from up here. The breeze is nice and cool as it flutters through my fur. Well, actually there is no fluttering at the moment; I have matts. Not the kind you step on, but the kind that twists and knots in my furry coat. Susan tries to

I need a hair cut!

brush me but I’m naughty and won’t stay still. Well, it tickles and pulls and hurts when she gets to the matted undercoat. Do you know what she does next? She snips with the scissors; she snippety-snips through the matts—now I’m lob-sided. I look a mess and the groomer can’t see me for three weeks. If Susan keeps snip, snipping I’ll have no coat left and you know what that means. Buzzzzzzzz! That’s the sound of the electric clippers as the groomer shaves me naked. I tell you I am not looking forward to that. But for now I’ll enjoy the Office Al Fresco and watching Susan write, although she’s not doing much these days. Of course, she should be in

Susan’s mum granny Betty Celebrates 100 years June 21st. She’s amazing.

England preparing her mother’s 100th birthday party, but this corona thing is still around so she can’t go and is trying to arrange things within the British corona guidelines from the other side of the Atlantic Ocean. It’s not working too well and poor Granny is so disappointed. I feel so sorry for her. This bl**dy corona thing! See, even I’m swearing now. I’d hand you over to Susan, but she doesn’t have much to say. It has been a stressful week so maybe I’ll just sign off. Maybe you could just have a look or a read of one her books, she’d like that. Stay safe, everyone.

Sqirrly, Squirrels & Spring

Where to start with a title like that? Miss Penny speaking. I’ve noticed that this lockdown, because of the corona thing, is causing my two legged friends to get a bit testy, hence the word squirrly. I’m told by the author is not a word, but I’m a dog so, to the grammar police, its doggy language. It also reminds me of squirrels, and there are a lot of them as we get into spring—even spring is debatable. I saw flakes of snow this week, plus a cold wind that blows right through my fur and I have a long thick coat right now. Hm, we’ve not been to the groomers for a while, close because of this corona thing. Gees, it is making life difficult. Back to squirrels. My walks are exciting as I watch the squirrels play. I try to chase them through the trees. Did you know a squirrel can run up a tree in a flash? I tried following by standing on my hind legs and leaping at the tree, nothing happens and I fall over.  Susan laughs, very embarrassing. Hm, let’s change the subject and see what Susan has been up to this week.

Well, she is very squirrly, not from the corona thing but learning how to advertise on Amazon. I don’t understand this but it requires, scraping data, spreadsheets and thousands of keywords, that’s definitely a perfect definition for squirrly. Susan tells me that Amazon is not shipping her print books, so she needs to sell more ebooks to buy my kibble and chicken. What? Yes, I have fresh cooked chicken breast for my breakfast and supper. I know I’m spoilt but then remember I’m an adorable little dog. Psst! If you’d like to have a copy of one of Susan’s nine books, try Book Depository, or Contact Susan or click on the links below. I like my chicken and having to eat plain dry kibble or, ‘shudder’, canned food doesn’t bare thinking about. Love you all, Stay safe Miss Penny and Susan.

That’s Me!

That’s me! Miss Penny VA. Can you see? Right there in the left corner of Susan’s website image. No idea what VA means Very Attractive, perhaps? Oh, Susan says  it means virtual assistant. I prefer my definition. You may notice Susan A Jennings Author For the love of story website has a new look. I’m chuffed, final recognition how ever you define VA. But what’s happened to my blog? I know Susan is busy,  working on the modified website, (she apologizes for errors work in progress) and promoting the new Lavender Cottage Book, Believing Her Lies. But Susan promised. I’m pouting a little. Occasionally she takes her focus off me, which is totally unacceptable, but pawing for attention with my wayward look and sad eyes is not working at the moment. To make matters worse, we have no hydro this morning. Up early as usual and before the coffee finished filtering, puff the lights went out. Thank heavens there was enough coffee for one mug. Psst! She can be cranky without coffee. No walk this morning, it’s pee-pad or wait, because the elevators aren’t working, that’s unusual too. The generators might not have kicked in. I don’t mind, I’ll just curl up and sleep. Now, this would be a good day for Susan to make my blog. What do you think? Um… maybe not no hydro, no internet. Sigh…………Update: Hydro back on, a fire in a substation caused the black out.

Believing Her Lies – A Lavender Cottage Book (3)  Now uploaded; the official release March 26th  Pre-order now on Kobo and Amazon.
