Readers, especially pet owners and lovers, will delight in Dog Days and Nights, Humorous Adventures of Esmerelda Perkins-Book I, as told by Esmerelda and written by best-selling author Sheila Carnegie. Esmerelda Perkins is an eccentric, aging and rather befuddled fictional character who lives on Old Toad Island, an imaginary island near Green Frog Island, off the West Coast of British Columbia, Canada. Esmerelda gets herself into all sorts of predicaments and loves to share her thoughts about life and her hilarious stories of adventure and travel. In this short book, Dog Days and Nights, the first in the series, Esmerelda is inadvertently drawn into a friend's home, off-island in nearby Victoria, to care for three cats, three birds, and to 'supervise' the breeding of a female Shiloh Shepherd dog in an 'amorous state of being'. The characters of the various critters are revealed, as are the dynamics of their interactions with both humans and each other. In spite of the problems Esmerelda encounters, you are sure to smile, and perhaps guffaw, at how she handles the situation, as she has learned to do. This story is based on actual experiences, although Esmerelda may have taken liberties in its telling, as she frequently does. NOTE: The ebook version of Dog Days has already hit the best seller list in two categories, several days running.
