my story has been published at Alfie Dog

I'm excited that my first online short story has been published. It's at Alfie Dog, a site that I found because of it's 'doggie' associations. As I posted when I first decided to try this site for my writing, I like to think the owners of the site love their dog enough to put his name at the top.

If you do want to buy my story - unashamed self-promotion here - you'd need to look under my name, which is Catherine McArdle. The authors are listed down the right-hand side of the home page.

What I'm really hoping, though, is that you might click onto Alfie Dog, even if you aren't interested in buying stories, because I'm trying to do my bit to promote the site. For people who love writing, it's terrific to think that there are places we can sell our creations.

I really should try to think of a story that could feature Penny. On the other hand, she is the star of her own story here, at her blog, so perhaps that is enough.

I am anxious to read your story, just need to look the "Alfie Dog" website over a bit to find the US funds box!

You have proven, over the years, to be a very talented, extremely inspiring and genuinely nice person...I wish you much success with your first online short story!

Hi, Tina
Thanks for the nice words! I 'encouraged' my sister to buy a copy and she just paid in English pounds, and then her statement from Paypal was in Australian dollars. It was around 79 cents in Australia, I think, or something like that, so I think it would be about the same in the US. But please don't think you have to buy a copy. I'm just glad you're looking at the Alfie Dog site and giving them clicks.

I'm so thrilled that Teddy's lump turned out to be a lipoma too. Thank goodness!

Mitch and Molly, thanks for the encouragement. I think the internet world of doggie bloggers is a lovely group of people.
