Monty, Rosie and Jeff-Dog are Susan’s Border Collies – they keep an eye on her artwork to make sure she keeps earning kibble, and they have woofs with her if she’s not busy writing her books the rest of the time; every now and then they round up all the news of both and post it to her blog…

Gonna hafta shut shop to get my writing done! This year has been one of those in particular that’s involved running like mad and never catching up… (An unsympathetic PupperJack says: Run faster, Hoomun!)
‘My ribbon! Mine!
A Welsh corgi dog and a tricolour Cardigan corgi engage in tug-of-war over a piece of wrapping ribbon. They are lying in a bed of tinsel near the Christmas tree.
This is an original mini painting aka an ACEO – art cards editions and originals or an ATC – artist trading card.
A friend of mine has macular degeneration. This has made me realise how fab modern technology is for those with low vision. It has also made me realise how little there is for those who don’t like modern technology. So I have brought out some books in Very Large Print.
There are two word search puzzle books – (one of which isn’t in this pic) – that one is a book of the 48 counties of England with snippets of information for each county as well as the list of words to search for. The other word search puzzle book is in the pic – it is based on The Natural World. There is also a sudoku book for keeping one’s brain exercised, and two short story books.
One short story book is ‘Sweet Peas and Dahlias’ (and other stories), and the other is ‘Burglars R Us’ (and other stories). Both these books are illustrated to provide another ‘texture’ to reading the books.
The illustrations in the short story books are in black and white, and the fab reviewer who has just kindly left a five star review has said she is going to colour them. What a great idea!!! Multi-multi-functional books!
This is exactly the cold unfriendly weather in which a dachshund is better off snuggling down into his blanket and staying home!
This dachshund is not even gonna think about going out in this!
PupperJack has an exceptional tail. It’s so exceptional it is longer than he is tall. This means he sometimes leaves it lying around further from his face than you’d think possible.
On this fateful occasion he was going downstairs. I was following. Somehow my foot got on his tail just as he jumped to the stair below and didn’t quite make it because he was anchored to the stair above by his tail. Under my foot. Oops!
Poor PupperJack. He’s been looking at me accusingly ever since.
Top pic is PupperJack’s exceptional tail. Bottom pic is the face of a dog betrayed…
Oh, yes. It’s time we got to grips with the old dog and cat and books website and blog again. So here we are – surrounded by mountains of Christmas cards. The ones that other people send out (rather than ones we have received)…
Like these ones…
I was in London this week and took a couple of pics as I was getting around.
If you want a shotgun door handle you can find one in London:
But you can’t find a bin…
Some fab buildings…
And then there are the ones that pretend to be a building while the building goes on underneath:
Then there was a dog taking some ponies for a walk. (In the middle of London!)
And then you fall down an unmanned manhole…
