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.

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.

Abandoned!

I am shocked and traumatized!  Susan went away and left me… me… the princess! Miss Penny Speaking, I’m a bright dog, so I kinda got the idea something was going on. First I noticed, a tote being packed with a stack of notebooks and pens too many for one person. The next morning an empty suitcase case was put beside me on the bed; I was still snoozing. I opened one eye and thought What’s that doing there? Why is Susan standing at the closet door, sighing and muttering under her breath? Clothes were hauled out of the closet, inspected and either returned to the closet or thrown on me, well, the bed. But, it gets worse, my bed, blanket, toys, treats and kibble are packed in a big bag. Then I put two and two together, clothes plus suitcase plus my things meant we were going away. Oh, cool an adventure. And I was right; me, Susan and all the bags were put in the car, did I tell you I hate the car, but it’s okay today. Then, another treat we stopped at Rose and Pierre’s, but something odd happened they took my bags out of the car but Susan’s stuff did not appear in the hallway. You guessed it, Susan disappeared, the car drove off and left me behind; can you believe that? Rose gave me lots of cuddles and told me Susan was off to the Ottawa Independent Writers Retreat and Workshop in Westport and would be gone for a few days. Huh! See if I care! I lowered my head and made the best sad eyes yet and it worked more cuddles and treats and I settled in for the weekend.

Put A Sock in It!

Miss Penny Speaking, I thought that expression meant be quiet, but it’s my blog day; I can’t be quiet. I’m assuming the connection is socks. I love socks, especially when Susan takes off her socks. I wait and watch as she peels it off her feet then I pounce and grab the first sock and wait for the second one. I wish Susan had four legs like me then there would be four socks. I shake the heck out of it, I can only manage one at a time, then take it to my doggie bed and bury it and guess what, they disappear. I thought maybe there was a hole in my bed but then I saw Susan ‘unbury’ the socks and take them away. That’s okay because by bedtime tonight there will be another pair of socks. Do you think I have a sock fetish? Note, No blog last week, But I looked cute, even though I was squeezed into Susan’s Reader Group. Miss Penny tucked in blankets

So what has Susan been up to this week? The first of the Sophie series has gone to the editor. Susan is starting a new romance in the Narrowboat Romance series; Katie Saunders’ B&B is doing well, old guests return and new guests stir up trouble for Piers and Katie’s complicated romance.

Spring in my Step!

I see I’ve been preempted again and I’m not impressed. My picture and story should come first. I’m a bit spoilt! Miss Penny Speaking. Well, at last I was outside without either boots or coat with a spring in my step; a little chilly on the paws but I can walk on grassy patches and feel the wind in my fur. My walking routine is back to normal and that is a good thing as Susan is ignoring me, other than the walks. She is busy with yet another project. She’s great at coaching people to write books. I didn’t know this, but then I’m a dog so what do I know, Susan says that many people with small businesses want to write a book to add value to their business. She discusses the business side of things all the time with me and even my doggie brain thinks this is a great idea. Not that I would have a clue how to write a nonfiction book but Susan has the expertise and is finally expanding the coaching, How to Write a Nonfiction Book for your Business – A three-month coaching program. So, I will gaze out of the window waiting for my walks, pawing at Susan’s knee to remind her I’m here. Ah! It’s a dog’s life. If you are interested contact Susan  click here.

Latest edition of Susan’s Readers Group New  Belonging

Soothing Reiki

Miss Penny Speaking, I need a minute to bring my thoughts back; I am so relaxed. Sheila, one of my favourite people has just been from a Reiki session. Yep, Susan is a Reiki Master as well as an author. I’m not sure what Reiki is but I think it is healing energy and relaxation. I am rather lively and like to be the centre of attention. So when someone relaxes on the Reiki table and has Susan’s undivided attention, I have to make my presence known. At first I watch and listen to the soothing music, it is relaxing and I want to get up on the Reiki table with Sheila. Okay, now I’m being ignored—not a good idea. I fight the calming music and get my toys, the squeaky noisy monkey is the best one or the red thingy with a tail, that I can squeak and throw in the air as I run up and down the hall; if I can get my bone that’s even better as it makes a loud bang when I drop it. It isn’t long before Susan takes these toys away, but still no attention. I’m not done yet, my toe nails make a lovely clicking noise on the hardwood, if Susan tries to stop me I run away. But that soothing music gets to me and I finally curl up under the table and have a relaxing Reiki snooze. Ahhhhh…….Yawn!

A reminder from Susan…
