It's A Dog's Life

Daisy Winston visits today with a question about something that has been worrying her. When she's not blogging, Daisy helps Sophie Winston sniff out murderers in the Domestic Diva Mysteries by Krista Davis


Woof! Tail wags to all dog lovers! I know there are a lot of you, because strangers are always stopping to pet me. I love everybody, well, almost. My mom and dad are Sophie and Mars Winston. I wish they hadn't gotten divorced, but it has worked out okay because they share me and Dad spends a lot of time at Mom's house. Of course, it does mean that I have a stepmother of sorts, Natasha -- who doesn't like anything with fur or feathers in her house. She has a tendency to shut me in my dad's study. I don't mind too much, though. I curl up on the love seat that smells like him and nap.

I have to keep a close eye on my folks because my mom keeps finding dead bodies. You'd think she had cadaver dog training the way she sniffs them out. Not too long ago, somebody went after Natasha. It was a good thing I reacted without thinking about it too much, or I might have just stood back and howled a little. She tells people that I didn't save her, but she's been baking me special liver treats and feeding them to me on the sly.

I had a lot of fun helping track down the killer in The Diva Cooks A Goose. In spite of that, they put two kittens on the cover. Okay, the kittens were adorable. You should have seen them snuggling with me like I was an overgrown cat mom. I was surprised to discover that I'll be on the next cover. Here's a sneak peek. The artist captured me perfectly, if I say so myself.

Life is pretty good in Old Town, but I do have a few worries. Mom is dating Wolf. He's a pretty good guy, but he's not Dad, and I notice that Dad bristles when Wolf comes around. Even worse, that guy, Detective Kenner, is always hanging around Mom. Her sister said she thinks he's not so bad! I growl at Kenner a lot, but he keeps coming back. I'm hoping I won't need to bite him.

Do you think Mom and Dad will get back together? Or should I just hope for a nice stepdad like Wolf, or Dad's buddy Bernie? Should I bite Kenner? He just doesn't smell right.

  2. I can't wait to see you on the cover of the next book, but don't bite anyone. I think Wolf is a pretty good guy and think of it this way, you'll have more humans to rub you and sneak you treats.

  3. Daisy, don't bite Kenner. Maybe, when no one else is looking, lift your upper lips and show him what strong teeth you have.

  4. Biting Kenner will only get you into trouble so keep up the good work of snarling. Don't get your hopes up about Mom & Dad...I think Mom's smart to move forward with her life & Wolf will be a great step-Dad. Eagerly awaiting your next adventure.

  5. Thanks, Melanie. All the characters at the Domestic Diva Mysteries are pleased with the covers.

    Dru! How clever of you. I should milk the situation for dog treats! And you're right, Wolf is a good guy.

    Thank you for the grrrrreat advice, Janet. I will do exactly that when I see Kenner.

    Erika, I suppose you're right about Mom and Dad. I'll try not to bite Kenner, but I just don't like him! Krista says the new adventure will be here before I know it.

  6. I'm with the group here - don't bite Kenner. You'll just get yourself in trouble. But I love your view on your folks' lives. How fun from your perspective. Can't wait to pick up the next book with *you* on the cover!

  7. Not a good idea to bite a police detective, Daisy. (But you had me LOL-ing over the thought of it.) I'm a big lover of cats, yet I must admit, you're quite the handsome boy. I think you deserve to be on the next cover!

  8. Sheesh, no one thinks I should bite Kenner! If I had posted this on a canine site, I bet the dogs would have urged me to bite him!

    Julie, wait until you see the rest of the cover. It's spooky enough to make a brave dog howl.

    Cleo, thanks for the kind words. I like cats, too! But I'd sure like to bite Kenner . . .

  10. Dogs named Daisy really rock! I should know, I live with one. She would want to bite Kenner too. However, I hope you won't. You have enough complications in your life, dear Daisy!

  11. Thanks, Melissa! You've made me so happy that my tail is spinning in circles!

  12. Mary Jane, I should have asked this question in an all doggie forum, one where your Daisy would have encouraged me to bite Kenner -- and might have even joined me. We could chase him out of town!

    But I hear you. We dogs have excellent hearing. Woof!

  13. Well you don't have to bite him, but if you mistake his leg for a tree, who could blame you?
