Tuesday 28th June 2011 – My book is published

I am a published dog. I know you may have been reading this for five years, but you can now download the very best bits of year one as an ebook. If you don’t have a reader you can download software to read it on your pc, but I am very happy to say that in whatever format you buy it ‘Alfie’s Diary – Dog enough to be human, human enough to be a pet’ is now on sale from Amazon or Smashwords. I’ll give you the link in a moment, but the really cool thing on Amazon is that I am listed as author. You can actually search on Alfie Dog and find my book – how many dogs can say that? I’ll put all the links at the bottom of the page to make it easy wherever you are. Would you mind telling all your friends and family about it and asking everyone you know to click the like button, buy it and post reviews? This is my chance of fame and as a dog I don’t get that many.

Although I wanted to spend my weekend setting up launch parties, there were still the more mundane jobs to be done. The grass has grown so fast with the warm damp weather that the word ‘verdant’ seems totally inadequate. When we were cutting it, we found two giraffes and a zebra living in one corner without us being about to see they at all. The funny thing was that despite being the hottest day of the year so far, that was when my Mistress decided to start insulating the summer house. Strange behaviour, but then that’s humans for you.

My Mistress wanted a new wrist strap for her mobile phone. We have learnt that the correct name for that type of thing is ‘lanyard’. As usual, she wanted a purple one and it turns out that the type she wants is available on ebay for £1.69 in black. She didn’t want black. Then she spotted a purple one for £12.99. The only problem is for that money you don’t just get one, you get a hundred. Being the slightly insane person she is, she has decided she could buy all 100 and then sell 99 on ebay for £1.50 and make a profit. What’s the betting with everything else she is doing at the moment that the 99 sit in a box for a very long time?
