Nine Stories High!

Nine stories high, we are on the balcony, Miss Penny speaking. That’s where Susan, my author boss, has her morning coffee while I survey the land below. I don’t drink coffee because I’m a dog… sort of. The view across the Ottawa River is

Ottawa River View

amazing. At first it’s scary, floating above tiny people and cars, it is a very, very long way down. Um, I bet it would be like flying… wheee, all the way to the… um, maybe not. I just had a vision of the SPLAT on the driveway. It is a bit

That’s me. I’m looking down

disconcerting when I spot squirrels scurrying along the wall. I get excited and I want to run after them then I remember the splat and think perhaps not. If it is very early in the morning, I hear a swooshing sound and suddenly it rains from the ground. Honestly, I’m not kidding. The rain comes up from the grass, not down from the sky. It’s not called a rain shower, although it definitely looks like one. Susan calls it a sprinkler. Does that mean a sprinkle of rain? I don’t

Susan’s office on the balcony

understand humans; they do weird things. When Susan works on the balcony, she puts my bed at her feet and I can snooze and gaze while she writes. I like that. Susan’s a bit testy at the moment, the book she was advertising isn’t doing too well, but her mood improves as she starts the new book. She is researching the human battles of The Great War, a bit gruesome for my taste, but there are romantic parts. I’m guessing the love triangle will be intriguing. Psst! Spoiler alert! Who does Sophie fall in love with? Will it be Carlos or Dr. Cuthbert? Now I’ve got you thinking. Time to sign off, Susan sends her best and Miss Penny sends love. P.S. This book doesn’t like to be advertised, perhaps it’s waiting for its mate. Psst! Buy it or borrow it now and be ready for book 2.

Ignore Boredom?!

I’m suffering from ‘ignore boredom’, Miss Penny Speaking. It is, perhaps, not a proper saying, as my author boss, Susan, pointed out to me, but it’s all her fault. Susan is busy planing her new book and doing that Amazon ad thing again. This time she’s promoting Prelude to Sophie’s War one of my favourites, I like Sophie, she’s spunky and brave when the Germans are dropping bombs on London (WW1). But she’s annoying because she won’t admit she loves this handsome Italian guy. What’s that? Can I read? No, not yet; but I’m

Deleted! It wasn’t me!

smart so it’s only a matter of time. Susan reads all her work out loud; so I hear it all Psst! Sometimes too much, if you know what I mean!! However, when she’s in the planning stage like now, there’s no reading so I’m bored. I sleep a lot, curled up cozy in my bed, I prefer Susan’s lap but it makes it difficult to type, that’s another activity I need to learn, but when I rest my head on the key board, weird things happen on the screen. Um, perhaps not, because that’s the only time

Don’t you dare bury this again?

Susan yells at me. It’s time to sulk and ignore Susan and find my toys. Bouncing my ball makes her laugh but I have to wait until the work is done before playtime. Baby, the pink toy, is my favourite, except Susan buries it and I have to find it. After I give it a good shake I hold it tight so she doesn’t hide it again.  Well, I think that’s all for today …Oh, Susan says both ebook and paperback Prelude to Sophie’s War are available on Amazon and she’s hoping the sequel will be

Please play with me?

Hot & Wet!

Scorching hot, Miss Penny speaking, I could say that about my boss, author Susan. She is writing again. The creative gene kicked in; a new historical novel is on the way Sophie in the Heart of War. Yeah! It might have something to do with her new short hair and fabulous colour, freeing up her brain. What do I know I’m just a dog? Back to scorching hot and complaining. With good reason it topped 43c yesterday. I’m glad they groomed me last week, or I’d be like this dog under the fan. Actually, I don’t like the fan much; it makes my fur tickle. I sit on Susan’s lap, but then I get hot, so I jumped down to spread out on the floor. I had no idea my body was so long. I lie down and squish my tummy to the cold floor, spread my back legs out flat and my front legs as far as they will go and rest my head in between front

Susan! do you know it’s raining?

legs, not back, hee-hee, that would be a bit hard—and relax. It works I’m as cool as a cucumber; I suggested Susan should try it. Um! Perhaps not, I just had an image… no, never mind! Anyway, guess what happened this morning? We went for a walk and it was raining and we got wet. I’m not sure which is worse, the heat or the rain.

The boss is giving me the evil eye, I’m supposed to give you some author news. As mentioned Prelude to Sophie’s War has a sequel in the making Sophie in the Heart of War – A griping WW1 story of the heartache, love and redemption. The rest of the week will be quiet for me as she is working on Bryan Cohen’s Amazon Ad Challenge.  All for now. Love from Susan 👩🏻‍🦳 and Miss Penny🐾.

Drama and Trauma!

Shaggy Me, Before grooming!

Phew! What a traumatic day, Miss Penny speaking! Susan ran off and left me shut in the office, said she had to see Dan about her summer tires. A bit late I thought, but what do I know I’m just a dog. When she returned, I was bundled in the car, I hate the car almost as much as I hate being alone, except we went to Rose and Pierre’s and who was in the driveway but Cosmo, he’s the cutest dog, just my size. Then, I’m on my leash again, I’m all excited we’re going for a walk, except we stopped outside Pet Agree and you know what happens there. And then …I couldn’t believe it … Susan threw me, literally threw me,

Trim after grooming

into the arms of Tracy and walked away. Didn’t say good-bye, nothing; something to do with this corona thing. I felt very abandoned. But, I do like Joni, the groomer, I just wish she wouldn’t put me in the bathtub and use those clippers. When Susan finally picked me up I was embarrassingly naked except for my head. Psst! It did feel good to be rid of those knots, they do sting. However, my embarrassment didn’t finish there. During our walk this morning we met a very handsome Lhasa-aspos he had the most beautiful long fluffy white coat. We sniffed each other and made friends. Then I remembered

Pretty face, fluffy tail and naked!

was naked, I blushed to tips of my toes. Okay well, I know I can’t blush, but it felt like my shorn-skin-showing grey-black coat was bright red. Susan is giving me the ‘really’ look. A bit dramatic, maybe? Time to talk about the boss, I am an author assistant after all.

 

 

Not much writing going on these days, Susan says she’s thinking and planning a new novel. Hum…not sure about that, this corona thing has interfered with her creative writing gene, it’s just temporary, I hear rumblings of a new historical fiction. However, in the meantime, with Rose’s genius for photoshop, the new covers for The Sackville Hotel Trilogy are finished. E-covers first, paperback coming shortly. That’s it for now maybe the thinking and planning will turn into words this week. Who knows?

Granny Betty turns 100!

Betty 100th Birthday Photo by Lesley Johnson

100 years old, I can’t get my head around that number, Miss Penny speaking. Susan’s mom was born on June 21st, 1920, 100 years ago and she looks fantastic. Betty lives in England, we met the last time she visited; she was 98 then and still travelling. Susan is a little sad as she should be with her mom, but because of this corona thing it’s not safe for her to travel. I’m sad too, not just for Susan, but because I go and stay with Rose when Susan’s away and they have a backyard and doggie neighbours. Oops! I digress. Everyone is trying to make a big celebration for Betty, within the corona limitations, and it isn’t easy. Something very strange is happening. People who would normally visit are Zooming on Susan’s laptop. Yes, you heard me, Zooming; I know it sounds like a cartoon or racing cars but its people. All these heads and voices pop up and talk away as though they were in the same room. A bit of cursing goes on when the line crackles and some people can’t get in the Zoom room and if you don’t behave you get kicked out. I’ve never seen that happen in Susan’s meetings. Anyway, what do I know I’m just a dog, sort of, but here’s the thing, Granny Betty can Zoom, honestly, I said hello to her yesterday; she is marvellous. Think about it? When she was born computers, internet any kind of technology except for telephones, was not even heard of and letters took weeks to cross the Atlantic and today we are Zooming. Yesterday was a practice run for today. I am very excited because today we are having a Zoom party and there will be people from Canada, USA, England and Costa Rica all celebrating. I still can’t get my head around 100 years. Happy Birthday Granny Betty, love from Miss Penny.

Stuck on Me!

My foot is right by the red dot.

I was literally, Stuck on Me, Miss Penny speaking. As you know I’m waiting to get a haircut. Susan trims the knots, but misses a few and I sometimes get my nails caught. This morning was the worst. I’m a happy little dog, you can tell by my high-speed tail. We’ve just come back from a walk and I’m waiting for my breakfast. I have an itch, so I lift my back leg and have a good old scratch, right behind my ear. Awh! That was good and then panic, I can’t move. My back foot is stuck in my ear, I can smell the chicken for breakfast, I’m hungry. Susan looks at me and tells me to eat my breakfast—I can be a bit picky, but I like chicken. I can’t move, she ignores me. Help! Can’t she see? I’m stuck! Am I going to die? She frowns and asks me what’s wrong. Psst! One of these days I’ll give her a shock and answer, like Pluto on YouTube. In the meantime, my foot is still in my ear, picture it, my back foot—a contortionist I am

Phew a close one!

not. Finally, Mum realizes I’m stuck, Yep, no confusion Mum for the lovie stuff and Susan for the author business. This is an abuse of the lovie stuff. Mum rescue me? Oh no, it’s a horror movie, the scissors approach like monster jaws snapping open and closed. My ear! Please don’t cut my ear off! My foot won’t budge. Mum had to slide her fingers under my foot, into my neck and ear. I held my breath, two swift clips and I’m free. Phew! That was a scary morning, but the chicken was good and I got an extra Milkbone. What! A tad dramatic, you say. I’d like to see Mum put her foot in her ear. Maybe not! 🥺

Author news is once again limited, the new Katie story is coming along, but not much else. Psst! I think it’s time Susan got back to serious writing. But the books on Amazon Kindle are doing well, although the new covers are not finished yet. Susan says If you enjoyed reading The Blue Pendant  Book 1 you will love books 2 and 3. On special with Amazon Anne’s Legacy and coming up Sarah’s Choice. Take care everyone.

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.

My Morning Walk!

Please come down. I want to play.

Yeah! Miss Penny speaking, I have finally hit the jackpot during our early morning walk, early because of the heat (May heatwave here in Ottawa) and boy is it hot. Can you imagine walking around in a fur coat when it’s 40c, that’s what I have to do. I’m not complaining. Psst! well, yes I am but don’t tell Susan, I don’t want her to get the idea that I like the groomers. Okay, back to the walk. So, here I am trotting along, sniffing away and then (some epic music would go well here) I see them, three of them, two grey and one black  right in front of my eyes, I couldn’t believe my luck. There they were

That’s not fair. Where are you?

walking on the path. I stopped and studied the situation and weighed up my options. Should I creep slowly towards them, give them a gentle sniff so they know I’m friendly or take them by surprise and pounce on top of them, but pouncing might scare them? I decided to lie on my tummy and creep slowly towards them, giving Susan the look of ‘don’t-you-dare-pull-my-leash’, she got the message. I smiled, yes, dogs can smile, as I crept forward and made a friendly sound in my throat. They stopped, really, they all stopped and stared at me. Now, my heart is beating a mile a minute, they’re waiting for me to say hello. And… without warning, poof, they were gone! Gone, disappeared, I couldn’t find them anywhere, not even in the tree. I do not understand squirrels! No manners! And Susan’s no help, she just says, squirrels are afraid of me. Me! Sweet princess, Miss Penny. Huh!

What’s that? Oh, what’s Susan been doing this week? That is a good question, as to be frank I have seen little writing going on. She seems to work very hard with marketing The Blue Pendant she’s working with Amazon and gathering reviews. I had no idea how important reviews are to authors; it makes an enormous difference to the book’s ranking on Amazon and when the ranking is good Amazon promotes the book. I was even more surprised when Susan told me very few readers bother to leave reviews. Amazon doesn’t allow authors to ask for reviews, they get quite snippy about it but I can ask, I’m a dog so they’d never know…hee, hee. So, if you like Susan’s books, or not, please take a minute and write a review. Maybe then Susan will help me play with the squirrels.

My Pink Baby!

I love my pink baby, Miss Penny speaking. I have no idea why it is called a baby. I’m guessing Susan gave it that name. Picture one is getting ready for bed, it always comes to bed with us and Susan teases me and hides it under the covers. She gets quite snippy if I put it on her pillow, while she gets ready for bed. I get this look, it’s supposed to chastise, I don’t pay attention. Then, she picks it up with her fingers, as though it’s going to bite or something and throws my poor baby on my pillow (yes, I have my own pillow) and says it’s dirty and smelly. It’s not smelly. It has a well-chewed aroma. There have been comments about it being washed. Now that will upset me, I might have to chew a shoe or throw-up on the bed if she does that. Oh, and you may notice my flowing coat or overflowing coat, we haven’t been to the groomers yet.

Not much going on here, we’re still isolated and this corona thing is still hovering over us. Susan had to cancel her trip to the UK for her Mum’s 100th. I know she’s sad, but psst! I’m not because I miss her when she’s gone. As far as writing is concerned nothing new, Susan is in the thinking phase. That means she has lots of ideas percolating in her head. She’s still writing the romance, but I have a feeling something big is coming. Well folks, humans and canines, that’s it for this week. Happy reading and if you have a minute, go check out the new cover for The Blue Pendant, Susan says more changes are coming.

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.
