ME AND MY MUTTS by Jayne Ormerod

We're frantically spinning the hamster wheel of marketing as we talk up our new book, To Fetch a Villain, For Fun "Tails" of Miscreants and Murder. I'm excited to talk a lot about my pooches, and a little bit about my story, "Ruff Day."  Tell us about the furry members of your family? I have two rescue dogs, Tiller and Scout. Tiller came to us as a twelve-pound puppy of undetermined breed but possibly Carolina Dog. Without a DNA test I can tell you this dog has Great Dane in him. He’s now a big boy, 100+ pounds. Scout is a little rascal, scooped up off the streets of Puerto Rico. He came to us with no human interaction, and didn’t speak English. He has adapted well to his life of Riley. At a mere forty pounds, he rules the roost. No doubt about that. What do you do to you spoil your pets? Um, I bought them a king-sized bed, complete with coil/foam hybrid mattress so they can sleep with us at night. That includes frame, box spring, headboard, and of course

Our pair of Jacks (Disney, the brunette and her brother Riley) are from the same litter. What do you do to you spoil your pets? Our Jacks are family. They have multiple beds and enough gear and toys to fill several bins. What treat will your pet practically knock you over to get? Cheese. They can hear a cheese wrapped a mile away. What food item will your pet turn up his/her nose to? Riley eats anything. His sister is picky. She has to smell everything new before she tries it. What is your pet’s favorite thing to do? My dogs love car rides and long walks by th

Luke and Lena were named after my husband's grandparents.        What do you do to you spoil your pets? My husband and I spoil them every day. They ride in the back seat of the car where ever we go. They get treats from the bank teller when we go through the drive through. They love looking out the car window at the scenery and at people. All we have to say is "ready to ride," and they are ready to roll. They're just like little kids. They also sleep with us and love a pillow.   What treat will your pet practically

ME AND MY PET with Maria Hudgins

Maria Hudgins is the newest addition to the Mutt Mysteries pack. An accomplished author and pet lover, she is a tremendous asset to our lineup. Her story "At Your Service" will warm your heart. But first, let's learn a little more about Maria and her cat Lulu.  Tell us about the furry members of your family?     My current fluff is Lulu. She's a 14-year-old snowshoe cat. (Think: Grumpy Cat with a sweet expression) Lulu is a rescue. She was living with a family who had to give her up because they had a child with behavior problems. Lulu has pretty blue eyes and she purrs very loudly. She's afraid of dogs. What do you do to you spoil your pets?   I give Lulu "Brushing Bites" as treats. Since they are theoretically good for her teeth, I give four of them to her whenever she asks. She asks by sitting in front of my chair and staring at me. She jumps on my bed in the morning and sits on my chest. I let her do this. What treat will your pet practically kno
