Dear Mum and Dad,
It’s Clancy here, your puppy, writing from my new home in the city. The people I’ve moved in with seem friendly but a little strange. They’re particularly weird whenever I urinate. Either they run around grabbing rolls of paper towel, in a scene of some hysteria, saying, ‘Oh no! Oh no!’ or the stand smiling and saying, ‘Good dog, good dog.’

The first version happens inside, after I’ve urinated on the kitchen floor; the other outside, after I’ve urinated on the grass. I’m not sure what they are trying to convey. The only certain thing is that the “Oh no! Oh no!’ version is much more fun for me to watch, so it’s the reaction I go out of my way to generate.

  1. What an adorable excerpt! Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

  2. Lol ! Ah, if he’s 3 months old, there’s still hope. It looks like a lovely and fun book. It’s a nice change from cat – I’ll be publishing reviews of books with cats all week long, Clancy wouldn’t like that I bet 😉

  3. I just got placed on the waiting list for the ebook. Shari loved it, I remember her laughing all the time when she was reading it. 🙂

  4. I LOVED this book!

  5. Seguramente le irá bastante bien. Cuando llevas a tu cas a un perro es porque te interesa el amnimal y quieres darle todo el cariño del mundo.

  6. Ha, ha! This sounds like a terrific book for dog lovers!

  7. Good one! I love these type of books.

  8. This had me cracking up. Sounds like a fun book! Definitely one I’d enjoy.
