She’s home! I’m home!
Miss Penny speaking. Did you miss me?
It has been sometime since I wrote my last blog.
I am very happy Susan’s home but I miss Rose and Pierre. I suggested we all live together. That didn’t go down well. My humans don’t have the same herding instinct as I do. Another thing humans don’t seem to understand is sniffing.
My first walk back in the neighbourhood took a very long time.
The level of sniffing required was tremendous, new smells, old smells and unusual smells all needed to be recorded for future walks. I guess the best way to explain it in human terms would be a smorgasbord of olfactory sensations. Quite overwhelming!
Susan said I picked up some bad habits while away.
I had a little snigger, as I was quite spoiled by Rose. I had no problem getting attention, I only had to drop my head and give a woeful look and my demands were met. It looks as though Susan needs a bit more training, the woeful look is not working. But, I am happy to be home and back into our routine.
I’m ready to resume my role as author assistant, although I don’t see much novel writing happening. Plenty of research into the 1920s using terms like flappers, short skirts, gin fizz and finger wave, the latter is a type of wave in bobbed cut hair, fashionable in that era not Susan getting mad with a driver cutting her off on the highway. Susan has prepared a new edition of Susan’s Reader Group News that goes out tomorrow.
I’m guessing by next week I’ll have learned a lot about life in the 1920s. I wonder what dogs were like 100 years ago? Now that will be interesting.
Readers, I have a gentle suggestion, that you might want to read the first two books in the Sophie series and be ready for book three by Christmas.
