Puppy's mum says: Something to Spread the Word About!

How might Puppy's Mum be able to help you?

Pharaoh Hound Information

Do you have a dog, and have questions about how to keep your dog happy? Is your new puppy having trouble settling in? Are you looking for a new puppy and aren't sure where to look?

I would love to help you with any of these issues, and more. My husband and I have bred many puppies over the last twenty years, and every puppy born at our home is important to us. Whether the puppy became a show dog or a much loved pet, it always remained 'our' puppy to some extent. We always cared about the wellbeing of that puppy.

I would love to be there for you too, if you have a new dog or pup, or if you're thinking of getting one, I would love to help you make the right choices for yourself, your family and for your puppy or dog.

Something to Spread the Word About!

Oh wow, has it really truly been this long since I made a new post on this blog? I just checked, and yes, my last post on this blog was in September last year! Oh dear, I loved this blog so much, how and why did it all go so wrong?

Never mind. I've been doing other things, working on other blogs I have, that seemed more important, more relevant to my life at the time. I read a post on Facebook earlier today, or perhaps yesterday, bemoaning friends who only show up when they want something from you. I'm afraid I'm about to be one of those friends...

Blogs aren't sentient beings though, so I suppose it's OK to treat them like I'm about to do. They are things that do better if you tend to them regularly though. And if your blogs is doing well, that means you, the blogger is also doing well, in terms of hits & clicks and things.

Anyway, to the reason I'm back here with a new blog post. This blog has a stated subject of dogs. And I'm a person who is interested in writing, so here I am, with some news about writing and about dogs. It's about a book about dogs that I wrote. I actually wrote this book back late 2009. I had an initial print run of 100, sold out and ordered another print run of 100. I now have only one copy left. Or maybe two, I'd have to check all of the book shelves to be sure. Book shelves, and assorted other places I may stash books... I don't have time to do that. It's not relevant at the moment.

What is relevant, is that I wish to spread some happiness around the world. And the way I want to do this is by doing another print run of my book about gardening and dogs. It's a funny little book, funny words by me, in the guise of a dog named Buster. And there are funny images, done by my dear friend Ally Hean, who I don't see very often now. She's working, I'm not and also, she's living further away from me.

I'm going to catch up in some way though, if this print run goes well, and if I sell enough books to pay Ally for the privelege of using her lovely funny pictures. The book I'm talking about is this one "Dig It! Gardening Tips For Dogs"

That is the link to the blog I set up way back when I wrote the book. You can see from this that I at least had some knowledge on how to market a self-published book. And when I consider that I sold or gave away almost 200 copies of the book, with little work really, I think I've done quite well. I enjoyed doing the work, and had fun working on it initially with Ally. I've been doing this print run by myself, but have made a couple of connections with other people who are interested in having copies of it. That's been fun. One of the people is in South Australia, where I live, and the other person lives in the USA, and in Egypt, depending on the season.

It's going to be fun have a new stack of copies of this book, and talking about it. I know a lot about how dogs like to garden, and even if some of the things I know aren't wonderful, there are plenty of fun things about the way they garden! I think everyone with a dog and a garden should have a copy of "Dig It! Gardening Tips For Dogs" Even if it doesn't physically help them, it should give them a bit of a giggle, and we all deserve that, every now and then!
