Stripy, Smelly Squirrel!

Stripey, smelly squirrel, Miss Penny speaking. As you know I like playing with squirrels, although they don’t seem so keen to play with me until this morning.

Watch out for stripy squirrels

Susan decided to walk through the park today, it was early and cool. I had encountered a few squirrels but as soon as I try to play they ran up the tree. But, today was my lucky day, we are sauntering through the wooded path and I spotted a black squirrel with a white stripe, quite unusual and as I approached to my surprise he didn’t run up a tree. He was a bit chunky, perhaps he couldn’t climb. I am soooo excited, at last a squirrel that will play. Sadly this was not to be. Suddenly Susan yanks my leash, just about chocked me, and starts running. Psst!

When you put them together, I see your point. Maybe?

Susan running is quite entertaining. Now, I am real mad. At last I find a squirrel that doesn’t run away and Susan grabs me picks me up, can you believe that? And, then she runs away. What is she doing? I wriggle and squirm I want to get down, the squirrel is still there although the cheeky thing has turned his back on us. He does look a bit weird, he has this big white stripe. But we’ve moved to the parking lot so I can’t see so well. Then this smell wafts towards us. Pew! He needs to lay off the beans. You’ve guessed, it was a skunk not a squirrel and Susan explained that I was very lucky, because any closer and I would have had a tomato juice bath and be sleeping on the balcony for a couple of days. She wouldn’t, would she? Lesson learned I will avoid this kind of squirrel. No new writing news today, but the Sophie’s War Books 1 & 2 launch is confirmed June 11 and 29.

Seeing is Believing!

Seeing is believing, Miss Penny speaking. Sometime gifts drop my way, usually stuff I’m not supposed to have. The other day I was under Susan’s feet, a place where I frequently hang out and regularly get yelled at. Susan doesn’t look where

New plaything, sniff!

she’s going and trips over me, even steps on my paw and that smarts. But, get this, I get the blame for being in the way. Can you believe that? Anyway, Susan is sorting her vitamins and I’m wondering why I don’t get vitamins and then this little container drops in my path. I give it a sniff, it smells weird, maybe I don’t like vitamins. There was nothing inside but it was a neat shape. I grab hold of it with my teeth and gave it a good shake, then bat it around with my paw. Spoil sport, Susan takes it away, said it wasn’t safe. I can’t figure that out? Maybe it had something to do with not seeing too well. Did I tell you she broke her glasses? That was my fault too.

Not going to mend those!

Coming back from our walk she dropped my leash, glanced down to find it and step on it so I wouldn’t run away, as if….? Her glasses were perched on top of her mask, those funny things everyone wears these days, they fell off and guess what she stamped on? Yep, her glasses and believe it or not I got the blame. Susan says I’m being dramatic, perhaps! I’ll let you decide. Oh, here comes the evil eye, except there is little writing to report this week. But she has redesigned the covers for the Lavender Cottage Novels and they are spectacular. But for the rest of the week Susan has been embroiled in one of Bryan Cohen’s, Best Page Forward, Amazon ad Challenges. Psst! Between no writing, honestly not one word, and Amazon messing up the formatting on one of her books she is very cranky. Cranky means more cuddles for me, so its not all bad. Next week will be better Heart of Sophie’s War will be back.

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.

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.

This Corona Thing!!

She bathed me!

It’s getting to me, this corona thing, Miss Penny Speaking. Until now it has been great Susan stays at home writing away, I get lots of cuddles and some very interesting conversations. Psst! I am an intelligent dog, almost human, but there are times I am not quite sure what she’s saying but as I’m not expected to answer it’s okay and the keywords for me are the names of the people I love and walk, dinner, treat and come-on-up. The last word is usually spoken when we have visitors. However, because of this corona thing we don’t have visitors. The other day one of my very favourite people knocked on the door. I knew Sheila was behind the door; I heard her voice. A conversation continued with Susan, but the door stayed closed. Then, now I’m all excited, the door opened slightly, not even enough for me to squeeze through and

I know you’re there!

I’m pretty good at nipping out, but not this time. An envelope passed through the crack and poof the door was shut again. Now that is not fair! And another thing, Susan said I was getting smelly, I thought I smelled good, a proper doggy smell, (I kind of waffle between canine and human, whichever suits me at the time). Her constant comments that I was stinky should have clued me in that I was destined for a bath. Sure enough, in the sink I go, no point in wriggling away as Susan catches me every time, so I put up with it. Now Susan cuddles me and tells me I smell nice. I miss my friends and family and I know we all do. I will be glad when this corona thing is over. 

Susan has had some success from her new Amazon ads and you will notice a new cover for the trilogy, one of my favourite people, Rose, helped her, over the computer so I didn’t get to visit. I miss Rose too.

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.

She’s Home!

SEE IF I CARE! 

Phew! At last Susan is home, Miss Penny speaking. Rose and I were out walking one day and I thought I heard Susan’s voice calling me, “Pen-Pen,” Susan’s pet name for me and then I saw this woman walking towards me. Could it be? Was it? Yes, it was Susan. I was beside myself and ran around in circles and peed; I just couldn’t stop myself and peed again. Finally, Susan picked me up, it felt so good to have her home. However, now I have another problem. I like being with Rose and Pierre, so now I miss them. I had a brilliant idea and suggested we all live together. It seemed they didn’t agree. As that will not happen, it is

MY NONCHALANT LOOK!

time for me to sulk. First, I stopped wagging my tail, then I didn’t eat my supper. Susan tried to play with me but I ignored my toys. She picked me up and whispers in my ear; I love that, but I didn’t smile or lick her face (not that that is allowed) I was nonchalant, but secretly soaking up all the loving. I kept that up for two days and then I had to eat; I gobbled down the chicken and even cleaned my dish of kibble. So, it was game over and I stopped sulking. But I stay very close to Susan. She is not getting away again. Before Christmas Susan said she was making me a new blog with my own domain. Where is it? I’m told to be patient it’ll be here at the end of the month.
