Hi, there, Ms. Dog. You look familiar. I believe you’ve been on this blog before, but please introduce yourself and your author.
I’m Sweet Pea and my author is Amy Hueston.
Mice to have you here again, Sweet Pea.
What book(s) have you appeared in? Please list them and their genre.
Paws for Concern, Book 1. Paws for Alarm, Book 2. Paws of Death, Book 3. All in the Canine Confections series. And I’ve also appeared in the new Canine Confections Puzzle Book.
Yes, that’s where I know you from. I interviewed you for your first book Paws for Alarm.
Please give information about your series.
The Canine Confections series is located in Palm Beach, Florida. My mom Samantha owns a dog bakery. We live in mom’s aunt’s cottage on her Aunt Mary’s estate. Aunt Mary lives in the mansion but I’m okay with that because we go there all the time. Plus, there’s a cat in the mansion now and she’s a little snooty to me. I’m a little afraid of her paws and claws.
Mol (meow out loud). Nice to know you have a cat in your series, but you should be wary of her claws if you upset her.
Are you based on a real dog such as your author’s? If so, please give further details.
Yes. Her name was Ebony. I am a black 35 pound Labrador Mix. Mixed with what I’m not sure. Maybe a little German Shepherd. I have a long, straight tail and white paws. My ears flap. I’m very cute, or so everyone tells me.
I’m based on my author’s Siamese cat, Oliver, who has since gone to Rainbow Bridge.
Can you share an excerpt from one of your books that features you in an important scene? If so, please include it.
The scream had come from the direction of the library where Donna and Dick had been heading before the party. A few small dogs who hadn’t yet made their way out to the patio yipped. A couple of mid-size and larger dogs flattened their ears and huddled against their owners’ thighs. Sweet Pea leaned against my calf. I bent down and petted her behind the ears, then whispered into her ear. “It’s okay, little girl.”
Pawsome scene. I love libraries because I’m a library cat in my series. There was a murder in the Cobble Cove library once. It happened in the 3rd book of our series, Written in Stone, and there was also a scream.
What do you like most about your role in your authors’ books?
I get lots of attention, pets, and treats. I also get the king-size bed.
I love sitting in the Bay window of the children’s room and participating in story times. I also like snoozing on the cat tree in Alicia’s office.
Are you a talking dog in your books or just a silent one like I am who just meows occasionally?
I don’t in human English. I whine a little if mom is being stingy with the treats just because she doesn’t want me getting too fat and unhealthy.
I only communicate with the other pets in the series. It didn’t start out that way, but now that there is another cat and two dogs, it’s helpful especially when trying to help Alicia and Gilly solve crimes. We all use non-verbal with the human characters.
What advice would you give other dog characters?
Stare up balefully like you haven’t eaten in weeks next time someone has a cookie in their hand.
Good advice. You sound almost as sneaky as a cat.
Do you have any new books coming out? Please give dates and details.
Whew! These 2, Paws of Death and Canine Confections Puzzle Book 1 coming out at the same time, kept us so busy, I think I need a second before I can answer that.
The puzzle book sounds interesting. You are a busy guy and your author, of course.
Are you and/or your author on social media? If so, please list your links.
Oh yes! We love talking to new (and old) friends!

Two murders on the same strip of Worth Avenue in Palm Beach means dog bakery owner Samantha Armstrong and her fellow shopkeepers have reached their quota of bad stuff. Right?
They should be so lucky…
Samantha is thrilled that life in her new hometown has finally settled into a fun, peaceful rhythm. Canine Confections’ business is on the upswing, and her days are filled with jogs on the beach with her pooch Sweet Pea, cozy time with Aunt Mary on her aunt’s estate, and yummy treats at her upscale dog bakery. But things are not peaceful for long when Donna from the local gossip magazine, Pulse on Palm Beach, winds up dead at Samantha’s first foray into catering a millionaire dog’s birthday party.
Once again, Samantha finds herself smack dab in the middle of the investigation. But this time, it’s another reporter from Pulse that’s making her center-stage. With the aid of her precious Sweet Pea, Samantha pads around the splashy Worth Avenue sniffing out clues. Unfortunately, the more she searches, the more suspects she finds. And it doesn’t help that Angelina from Mystic Dreams has hired a psychic who warns that trouble in Palm Beach isn’t about to end anytime soon.
Includes an original recipe from the world-famous Three Dog Bakery!
Like a bad penny that never fails to show no matter how much you wish for a silver dollar, Dick appeared across the street
Two occasions of dipping my toes back into the dating pool after my old boyfriend broke my heart back in Sun Haven, and I was already wanting to go full-on up to my ankles with this guy.
“Snowball, you’re going to have to play nice if you want to live here,” I said, hearing the empty threat in my words and knowing there was zero chance we would ever give the cat away just because we had a learning curve on how to make this work.
Now that I didn’t have to worry as much about my income stream, I could think about other things…sweeter things…like Peanut Butter Clusters and PupCakes
The furry girl and I were whizzing along Ocean Avenue for another day of work in paradise.
“It’s not my fault you’re a magnet for murder.”
Aunt Mary in spandex was one thing. Trumble in spandex was a good reason to wash my eyes out with battery acid.
A few months ago, when I lived in Sun Haven, I didn’t run into a murderer once, far as I know. This town was rife with them
