Hello, there, Mr. Dog. What is your name and your author’s name?
My name is Vanilla; they call me “Nilla” for short. My author’s name is Tanya R. Taylor.
Nice to meet you. What book(s) have you appeared in? Please list them and their genre.
I appear in the Lucille Pfiffer Mystery Series. The first book is BLIND SIGHT and the second is BLIND ESCAPE. I will also be appearing in other books in this series. It’s a Cozy Mystery series.
Pawsome. I love cozy mysteries. I’m in a series myself, The Cobble Cove mysteries, although purrsonally I think they should be called Sneaky the Library Cat mysteries. Tell us about your series.
My owner, Lucille Pfiffer is blind, and I’m her companion and protector, although she thinks she’s big and bad enough to protect herself. She’s really good at solving mysteries and I think I’m kind of good at it myself.
I’m good at discovering clues. I think animals and mysteries go together because they have such good sixth senses.
Are you based on a real dog such as your author’s? If so, please give further details.
Yes, I am. My real name is Vanilla, just like in the books. I am the cute pet of my author’s daughter, Mercedes, and we have a very loving family.
That’s wonderful. My author has three cats, but she lost the Siamese, Oliver, on whom I was based.
Can you share an excerpt from one of your books that features you in an important scene? If so, please include it.
Sure. Here it is:
Nilla got to explore one of the mazes and Theodore laughed heartily as she seemed to be confused about midway as to which direction to take. He tried to coach her, but I don’t think she trusted Theodore to lead her in the right direction, especially after she knew she was responsible for biting those toes of his countless times. Theodore must’ve thought for a moment before volunteering his help that revenge is sweet!
Bow Wow! That was wonderful. Thank you.
What do you like most about your role in your authors’ books?
My author adds humor to this series and I like that. She also portrays me the way that I am in real life.
That’s nice. My author also tries to add humor to our mysteries. I think people enjoy that.
Are you a talking pet in your books or just a silent one like I am who just meows occasionally?
I’m a dog – a Shih Tzu, actually. I talk all the time. They call it “barking’, but I call it “talking”.
I know what you mean. I also like to meow, purr, and do the wide range of cat noises.
What advice would you give other dog characters?
Be yourself and let that shine through in your role. That’s my best advice.
Do you have any new books coming out? Please give dates and details.
BLIND SIGHT is just Book one in the series, so far. There are many more books to come in this series, so make sure to be on the look-out.
I’ll do that, and I’m sure my readers will, as well.
Are you and/or your author on social media? If so, please list your links.
My author is. Here are her links:
My author will look you up. Thanks so much for the interview, and best tail wags on your new release. I’m sharing your blog tour below.

Lucille Pfiffer sees, but not with her eyes. She lives with her beloved dog Vanilla (“Nilla” for short) in a cozy neighborhood that is quite “active” due to what occurred in the distant past. Though totally blind, she plays an integral role in helping to solve pressing and puzzling mysteries, one right after the other, which, without her, might remain unsolved.
The question is: How can she do any of that with such a handicap?
