My Furry Mom & Our Story

My furry mom and our story, Miss Penny speaking. Lila is my real furry mom, she lives with Susan’s friend Kathleen, my two legged mom. Because of this Covid

Me and My Mom

thing, we never have visitors, so it was a treat to see my mom.  Did I ever tell you my story? My mom was rescued from a despicable puppy farm when I was in her tummy with six other little pups. Kathleen, adopted my mom and I was born, they called me the runt of the litter. I can’t say I like that term, it sounds as though I’m some sort of delinquent. Apparently I was a surprise, six puppies born and then much later I popped out. You see, right from the beginning I was special, making a grand entrance, that just proves I was born a princess. I don’t

Looking for squirrels but see how trim I am?

even look like my brothers and sisters, although we are Shih Tzu’s, I am small and skinny with long legs, my siblings are chubby with short legs. The vet called me a throw-back. A throw-back!? I’m so insulted, what is that supposed to mean? First I’m called a runt now a throw-back. Does this deserve a rebuttal, like chewing a shoe or ripping a Kleenex into shreds? Perhaps not. I liked Susan from the moment I saw her at only eight weeks old. She said she’d never have another dog after she lost my predecessor, Buddy-Boy. It took me all of two seconds to change her mind and here I am three years later, snug and warm and not just a pet but an author’s assistant. Speaking of which, before I get the evil eye, a report on Susan’s writing. Well, she has been cranky this week, a big issue with her new

Work in progress

book Heart fo Sophie’s War, one important character had difficulty getting into the story and it required a lot of work and a re-write to correct the issue.

Yikes! It’s Almost Christmas

Yikes it’s almost Christmas, Miss Penny speaking. Hum …not much going on in the office these days, except I get thrown in with the door closed and you know how I feel about that. I thought Santa came on Christmas Eve, but I’m a dog so what do I know. He seems to knock on our door a lot and I suspect he has moved from the North Pole and lives at Purolator or Amazon, or he might be local as Susan comes home with lots of bags. Santa is a mystery. I wonder what Santa has for me?

Cuddles My Favourite Thing!

Do you like my Santa hat? Miss Penny speaking. Christmas is not far away. Do you like Christmas stories and cooking?

cuddles, but she’s a touch sensitive about it. Anyway, she has a shelf on her chest and I can curl up quite comfortably. She complains she can’t see over my head, so I move but then she complains she can’t type with one hand. I get it, she’s an author so she has to write but, maybe she should learn to type with one hand. Um… that comment didn’t go down well, I got the raised eyebrow and the don’t-mess-with-me look. I shouldn’t have done that now I’m delegated to my bed. I need another tactic, pawing her knee sometimes works, especially if I put my

head to one side and look very cute or if there’s no response I can try the sad eyes. If writing sessions are intense, which they seem to be at the moment, the cute stuff doesn’t work. Psst! Chewing my paw gets her out of the chair. Hee, hee!  Susan thinks I have a burr in my paw, then I get cuddles while she looks for it. But, despite my efforts serious writing is continuing. Oh here comes the evil eye, I’m Susan’s author assistant and the whole idea of this blog is to talk about her books and I get carried away, always the princess. As I mentioned serious writing this week Heart of Sophie’s War – Book Two is up the Chapter 21. There’s a hint of a new romance, tender glances between Emily and one of the young surgeons. Sophie of course is yo-yoing between Andrew and Carlos. One of the new and badly injured soldiers is a relative of the colonel’s and that’s not all, he may unwittingly divulge Trixie’s secret marriage. If you love historical fiction and

A Heebie-Jeebie Week!

A heebie-jeebie week, Miss Penny speaking, I made that up but it’s appropriate.

Heebie-jeebies!

First it was too much ignoring as Susan finished and uploaded the Box Set of the Lavender Cottage Books. Then, (this is the worst part) Susan starts flitting about and I’m shoved in the office with the door closed, more time than I can count. Laundry day, our laundry is downstairs,  Susan keeps disappearing, she says, she’ll be back but how do I know? Forsaken for a load of washing? Me, the princess! Then, she’s busy wrapping things, not paying attention and off we go in the car. I hate the car and it’s my walk time. But wait for it, there’s more, she leaves me in the car and goes to the Post Office, something about parcels to England. I can’t see her, the store swallows her up and I’m trapped in the car, the heebie-jeebies are making my heart thump. Phew she’s back and we go home. I get a very short walk and I’m suitably miffed. Yep, it’s not over yet. Both phones are jangling, multiple times, and each time I’m shoved in the office and she disappears with books in her hand. What’s going on? I’m a nervous wreck, never to recover. So much isolation (no not the Covid kind) and desertion is traumatic. I use my sad face and get cuddles as she explains that OIW (Ottawa Independent Writers) has published an anthology Short Stories for a LongYear, neat title, because of Covid people are picking up their books from here. Well, the princess is not impressed. I am sure you will agree, heebie-jeebies is an apt description. Oh here comes the evil eye, not that Susan is in my good books this week, being ignored and deserted takes its toll. I get carried away, alwaysthe princess, I’m almost oaky so here’s an update.

Mock up #2

Heart of Sophie’s War – BookTwo is up the Chapter 20. Sophie muses about the two doctors who manage to keep her off balance no matter how much she denies her feelings. Infections from the dirty manure soaked battlefield; once farmland, almost kills a beloved character and horses might save another.

Life Threatening Walks!

Life threatening walks, Miss Penny speaking. Susan thinks I haven’t noticed our short walks this week. She’s busy with her books again, this time she’s compiling Lavender Cottage into a box set. We’ve had crazy weather here in Ottawa, two big snow storms, freezing rain, regular rain, fog and blustery winds and some walks have been life threatening. Okay, that might be a bit dramatic, but being buried by wet sloppy snow, is dramatic. We were walking along Carling Avenue (that’s the short walk) and first a bus goes by and almost blasts me off my feet and you know what I think about those monsters, but that was nothing to what happened next. First a loud rumbling and then whoosh we are covered in wet snow as this enormous snowplough goes by. Susan should complain to the city, I could have been buried alive. It didn’t slow down or apologize, (I guess it’s not Canadian) it just barrelled along leaving piles of dirty, sloppy wet snow on the sidewalk and me in the middle. Thankfully, Susan picked me up and we quickly retreated back to the driveway. That was the shortest walk of the week and I am a bit miffed. I like my walks to the park to meet my four legged friends and the sniffing is better in the park. Oh here comes the evil eye, Susan says to stop feeling sorry for myself, she will take me to the park today. That’s nice but I can sulk a bit. As I said Susan has been busy (less cuddles for me). Lavender Cottage Box Set, has a nice cover and will be ready by the next blog. Heart of Sophie’s War is motoring along, Sophie is reflecting on her purpose and what she can do to relieve the suffering from war nerves/shell shock. Her reflections include personal feeling. Why is she thrown off balance by kind understanding Andrew and off-limits Carlos? Things are heating up in more ways than one.

Christmas is coming to Lavender Cottage.... Christmas at Lavender Cottage a delightful novella filled with romance, friendship and recipes for Christmas cheer. This is the new cover coming soon……

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

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

Now that’s a creepy mask!

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.

Petrified Penny!

Petrified Penny, shivering and scared, is that any way to treat a princess?  Miss Penny speaking, Susan is usually full of cuddles and I get my own way

Penny with Sad eye

most of the time. It’s easy I just give her the sad eye look. Well, not today. As you know walks are my favourite thing, so when Susan clipped my collar on at an unusual time I was excited. I trotted along sniffing for new stuff, thinking maybe the squirrels would be more friendly in this new territory, except I couldn’t find any squirrel scent not even a slight whiff. Strange I thought. Then a monster bus whooshed by followed by racing cars and the final assault to my delicate, now vibrating ears, a vrooming motorbike. I jumped on the grass and pulled Susan away from the road, but she kept walking. I must say squirrels are smart little critters, which is more than I can say for my boss today. We get to a corner and Susan expects me to walk across the road. No way, I refused to move. I’m only eight pounds but I’m strong, so she picks me up and we cross anyway. We get to FarmBoy. WOW! This deserves an extra fast tail wag (I have an especially fast tail) so-o-o exciting. I’ve never been in a store before and lots of people say how cute I am, I’m liking this and then… my leash is tied to a railing

Petrified Penny!

outside. Susan disappears and leaves me!!! I am petrified! I start with a quiver and a whine as all these big feet walk around me, someone coos at me, that’s nice so I go into a full blown shiver, more coos and few ahas, this isn’t so bad but

I’m out of here!

where’s Susan? She finally reappears, unties me. I run like the wind, get me out of here! Oops! Here comes the evil eyes from author Susan. Heart of Sophie’s War is past the one-third mark. Battles rage on the Western Front, the hospital is full, Sophie collapses with exhaustion in the arms of a handsome doctor and a patient turns on her inexplicably accusing her of betrayal. Psst! This book is getting very exciting. **See below prequel Ruins in Silk only.99c

What the Heck is Halloween?

What the heck is Halloween? Miss Penny speaking, is it the cold weather that makes strange things grow in people’s gardens? Big orange things with faces, enormous black spiders, covered in cobwebs, I’m not kidding they are bigger than me. I know …I know I’m kind of little but still they are enormous. Normal people in our neighbourhood, where we walk everyday, turn into really creepy looking monsters, bleeding all over the place; it’s enough to scare the tails off the squirrels. And it gets worse, they take off their skin and rattled around in just their bones. Psst! I did take a sniff at the bone part, but it was plastic. I’m not sure I like Halloween and there’s more. Susan explained, the kids all dress up as ghosts and fairy princesses and knock on strange doors calling Trick or Treat!  It’s bit a modified this year because of the corona thing. And then, get this…these creepy looking people make terrible monster noises and hand out candy to these little kids. I understand the treat part, but not sure how I can knock on doors and those creepy people are not to be messed with. Oh no, is Susan going to turn into

My Halloween Costume

one of those creepy people? Miss Penny to the rescue. I will refuse to walk in the neighbourhood today, we’ll stay in our garden, let’s hope none of these orange things sprout up, I haven’t seen any spiders yet and the squirrels still have tails. I will protect Susan from these monsters and stick to my Milkbone treats. Susan’s giving me the evil eye, I need to talk about writing. Do I see a glint of creepy in her eyes today? As it’s Halloween, I won’t mess about. Susan’s laptop has been

I’m Seriously Miffed!

I’m miffed, seriously miffed! Miss Penny speaking. As most of you know I am Susan the author’s assistant. I listen to her stories, give my approval, or give her cuddles and licks (she’s not always happy with the licks) when things don’t go

I am the Best Dog Assistant Ever!

right. It’s mostly a rewarding job. So, why am I miffed you ask? Because I discovered, while Susan was redesigning the covers for the Lavender Cottage novels, that she features four dogs in that series, and I am not one them. Can you believe that?! I don’t mind that Buddy Boy is the main dog character, he is Katie’s dog, the main character in the story. She’s had a difficult time and needs a cuddly dog. Buddy Boy was Susan’s dog and my predecessor. By all accounts a charming laid-back gentleman; I think I would have liked him. But these others, Loving Lily had better not be loving Susan and Protector Sam, he’s enormous and what’s he protecting? I might be little but I can protect Susan just fine, even if I don’t like to bark. Although I did bark the other day; a strange man was cleaning our windows. I just wanted to make it clear I was watching him. So, Lily and Sam are whopping big retrievers and seem to have no connection to Susan, except they belong to Katie’s friend Judy, in the story of course. Then, there is Arthur, more my size and a wiry energetic dog like me. He belongs to this handsome guy called Piers. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out where this story is going—Katie recently divorced and Piers, a secretive handsome single guy. Even I can figure it out and I’m a dog, well sort of. However, none of

A Second Chance at Love

this explains why I am not one of the Lavender Cottage dogs. Susan says four is enough and I will have to wait for another series. Well, we’ll see about that! Very seriously miffed! The evil eye won’t work today, I’m not talking about Susan’s writing because I need to sulk, then I’ll get cuddles. Susan speaking, Poor Miss Penny, I’m sorry but I promise you’ll be top dog in another book. I’ll take over today and we’ll have cuddles. Miss Penny speakingHee-hee! It works every time.  Just a note to add I’m still working on changing the paperback covers and uploading books 2 and 3. of  Lavender Cottage Novels and they are spectacular. I’m back to writing  Heart of Sophie’s War more coming next week.
