Welcome to Mutt or Meow Monday!
Mutt or Meow Monday is where we interview the author’s animal friends instead of interviewing the author. Let’s see what the animals have to say!
It’s great to have you here today.
Please introduce yourself.
I’m Ginger. I’m little, a poodle mix—no one is sure what I am exactly! My mommy is an older lady and I love her, but the other person who lives in my home scares me. She is always in front of the funny machine with the big screen typing something. She seems to never notice me. I like to lie behind her chair, but she scares me when she shoves her chair back and nearly runs me over! So I bark at her when she hugs my mommy good-night. Loving my mommy is my job, not hers. She can go back into her office and type for all I care! But I do like the smoked cheese she bribes me with so I don’t pee in Mommy’s bed.
What’s your favorite book by Suz deMelloand why?
You’re silly! I can’t read!
Do you ever interrupt Suz deMello for attention when she’s trying to write? Does she stop and give you attention, brush you off, or bribe you with treats?
All the time! I like to annoy her. I know she hates my yap so I yap at her a lot. She will stroke me and then yell at me because she doesn’t like yappy little dogs. Too bad! ‘Cause my mommy loves me. I yap all I want.
Does Suz ever read her writing to you? Do you like it?
No, she doesn’t. She knows that the only words in English I understand are “Ginger” and “here’s a treat.”
Has Suz ever based one of her characters on you? Which one?
If she did base a character on me, it would probably be a villain. Who yaps and pees in the bed.
What does Suz do to celebrate when she finishes writing a book?
She drinks some funny bubbly stuff called “Prosecco.” I licked some off her finger once. It was icky. And she eats chocolate. I’m not allowed to have chocolate. It’s not fair!
What do you wish Suz would do with her writing time instead of writing?
She should be playing with me! I’m fun. I like tug-of-war and catch. I love to sleep on her bed and on Mommy’s, too.
What’s the best part about living with an author?
She’s around a lot. Mommy likes her around.
What’s the worst part about living with an author?
She’s around a lot. I don’t like her around.
Chicken, bacon or cheese? Smoked cheese smoked cheese smoked cheese FOREVAH!
Butt sniffin’, leg humpin’, fluffy toys? Toys toys toys toys!!!
Make sure when you find your forevah home, that there isn’t a writer! They’re boring!
