The Small Dog becomes a guinea pig

“You can have your very own blog, girlie,” she says. “That’ll be good.” Well, yeah… as long as I get my own ‘puter and don’t have to wait for her to get off the thing…

You’ve got to understand the set-up here. Me, I’m just a four-legs. I live with my two-legs and the fish… who don’t have any. There are pigeons and other feathered fiends in the garden, a cat in the flat upstairs and cows over the back fence. It keeps me busy looking after her and keeping her safe from them all. And that’s without defending her from the postman.

She, being a two-legs with those weird paws and fingery things, gets a ‘puter all to herself. I, being a four-legs, have to wait till she’s not using it before I can write. Is this fair, I ask you?

But two-legses have some weird ideas…

Even my books have to have her name on the cover… ’cause, ‘pparently… dogs can’t write! As I said, weird ideas…

Available via Amazon

So, all this “you can have a blog of your own” malarkey… well, there had to be a catch. And it didn’t take her long to let the cat out of the bag… an odd phrase, that, ’cause person’lly, that’s not something I would ever do… (I mean, have you tried getting a cat in a bag? They are all teeth claws and spitty bits…). Anyway…

“You can be a guinea pig.”

Er, what?

Now, don’t get me wrong, there isn’t much I wouldn’t do for her, but I’m no shapeshifter… and I have a feeling guinea pigs eat lettuce. Me, I prefer chicken.

“Not that kind of guinea pig…”

Well, what then?

“More of a test pilot…”

Now, I know I sleep in the odd…let’s say, unusual position, but I don’t fancy dangling completely upside down…

“Daft dog! No… for the new WordPress Editor that we will all have to learn…”

Well, that’s a relief, I can tell you!

And if that’s all she’s after, I don’t mind obliging. She did have me worried for a minute though… I s’ppose she has some sense, ’cause, she says if a small dog can work out how to use it, anyone can.

So… welcome to my new blog!

  1. I can hardly wait to hear Ani’s views about all these two-legs. who have managed to thoroughly screw up the world. Perhaps it’s time for a guinea pig. And no, I don’t mean the test pilot variety. 😎


  2. I’m sure, Ani, that you are as wise as you look. Er, I hear siting/standing/sleeping upside down adds more blood to the brain, making it stronger. πŸ™‚ Good luck with the new editor. I tried it and said too many bad words, so I’m back to the “old” editor. By the way, ask your human if she saw my review of her book Lifelines on Goodreads. I loved it!


    1. I don’t mind dangling, but I like a nice, soft sofa under my back these days πŸ˜‰
      My two-legs said a few words no four-legs should hear… and she’s staying with the old editor as long as she can. But I convinced her to persevere on my blog and it isn’t so bad.
      She says she hadn’t seen your review… but she has now and is smiling ear to ear πŸ™‚

  3. Good for you, Ani. It’s about time you have your own blog. You’ve posted on your two-legs blog a lot and she gets the credit for the post. I’d hang in there and keep insisting on your own ‘puter; you certainly deserve one. Love, hugs and a belly rub.
