Writing the Next Book in the Series

Hello to everyone who has popped in for some news about my venture into self-publishing. I have been thinking lately about getting down to my works in (no) progress. One of these is the next book in the series begun with 'Dig It! Gardening Tips for Dogs'.

In the last part of that book another book to come is hinted at, and now that stocks have run low in the third print run of the first book, I have decided it may be time to get serious about getting book two written.

I have an idea, I have a working title, but I am woefully low on money to buy myself time to write the book. The idea is for a funny book about sex from a dog's point of view (slightly raunchy but certainly not pornographic), the working title would be Doggy is not the Only Style, the money to buy some time? Well, dear reader, this is where you come in.

If I can get enough donations, I can get down to writing this book, and paying my wonderful illustrator Allyson Hean to create some funny but only slightly naughty pictures.

So that is my plan, checkout this website just above the blog posts to donate if you want to help this plan come into fruition.

Thank you

Human versus Canine

We have finally taken back control of the back lawn. Last Friday great work was completed by the men of the family in clearing the path of encroaching grass. This grass was then planted out in the bare sections on the area that used to be lawn.

It was then watered in, and the watering has continued when possible, and it is looking so much better now. It used to look like a bomb site, not it looks like a lawn in progress. The culprit, La De Dah is now only let outside there if he is being watched.

He's coping just fine, spending lots of quality time on the sofa, or down in the back run, where is allowed to dig as much as he likes. As long as we stay committed, this will work!

Man rules, and don't you forget it dog!
