Mal (Pup) and Mella (kitty) talk summer on Mackinac Island #Bookgiveaway
What's your favorite Mackinac Island smell?
Mal: The smell of fudge is okay but not my favorite island smell. My favorite smell is the scent of popcorn from the candy stores. I love popcorn with butter, of course. Next would be the smell of the water's edge. Sometimes you can find interesting dead things washed ashore. I like to roll in those.
Mella: Really, Mal, you are such a dog. I like the water, too. Fish is my favorite smell. The fresher the better.
What's your favorite thing to do on the island?
Mella: I like to roam the island and take the the occasional hitchhike on a horse draw carriage. It's good to keep an eye on your territory and make sure everything is ship shape. The view from the carriage is pretty cool. The tricky part is jumping off. Sometimes a horse will back up and you have to make sure you're clear of the wheels.
Mal: My favorite part is greeting all the guests at the McMurphy Hotel and Fudge Shop. So many interesting people to give me pets. I especially love the kids because they will pet me nonstop and even slip me a treat or two.
What's Allie like when she's not investigating a crime?
Mal: Allie is the best. She loves me and plays ball with me and feeds me and likes to pick up my poo.
Mella: She doesn't like to pick up your poo, kid. Trust me on that. I picked Allie. She has a good heart and accepts me the way I am without too much fuss and bother. I don't like people who fuss over me.
What is your advice for people who travel to Mackinac Island?
Mella: If you can, you should stay on the island at least one night. It's quiet and peaceful and a different place when the crowds go home for the day.
Mal: Roll on the grass of the big lawn at the base of the fort. It's like the best thing ever and you might even get to roll on something dead. Great to have that smell in your fur.
