Bertie the Dachshund has published his diary!

Calling all dog lovers – especially of bossy little dachshunds!

My adorable miniature long-haired dachshund Bertie has had his diary published. Bertie’s Diary is full of humour, and his own illustrations and photos, as he takes us through the ups and downs in his life.

from Bertie’s Diary


Bertie the dachshund is the ’Adrian Mole’ of the dog world and, like Adrian, writes a very personal account of the world as he sees it.

Bertie’s Diary takes us through the memorable times in his life with humour and affection – even Prods (Newmum’s young’un) is treated with empathy by this canine scribbler.

If you are a Pet Parent – a word of warning – don’t leave your laptop unattended because you never know what you might come back to…………

A beautiful book to treasure!

Friday the 13th – Reasons to be Cheerful part six – and remembering Bertie.

It’s Friday – I don’t have to go to work on Fridays. And it’s the thirteenth which makes it kind of magical and special.

Having not one but two Lucky Black Cats!

I have not read  ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’.

My cats are having the mid-morning snooze on my bed – they are so happy I’m at home today.

Planning a holiday with my husband to Lucca (the place not the cat) – his ancestral home – so excited!

Thinking how thrilled my husband will be with his Valentine’s Day present.

Finding Lucca the cat’s stash of shiny things and retrieving a gold ring I’m supposed to be selling on ebay.

The house is so clean and tidy – my lovely cleaner was in yesterday and surprised me by rearranging my dining room – love it.

My Tesco’s delivery – they didn’t have the value strawberries and have substituted with their finest at no extra cost!

Having the time to write.

New net curtains – I must be getting old!

Remembering my lovely little dachshund Bertie – he would have been twelve today – sadly died last summer but after a happy, happy life.
