After many discussions between Candy Rae, Alex the Dog and Sammy the Cat, it was decided to take some literary liberties concerning the abilities possessed by dogs to make of this book one that both a non-canine and a non-feline might enjoy. We also decided that the abilities of cats should be included in this resolution. Sammy the Cat wasn’t very happy about liberties being taken but calmed down when Alex the Dog threatened to pull out of the project.
Quotes from 'Dog not in Charge':
"Despite what they might say to the contrary, it is easy to get a cat to play, no matter what age. All you need to do is to swing a play mouse in front of their face. A little ball of leftover wool is just as efficient and is cheaper. They cannot resist." (Alex the Dog)
"Don’t try to trick me. I can add and subtract. Everycat knows that half of two is one and three-quarters." (Sammy the Cat)
Alex the Dog apologises for the repeated words. The other week Sammy the Cat learned everything there is to know about ‘copy and paste’. Attempts to remove duplicate text proved futile.
DOG NOT IN CHARGE is written using the language that is known as British English but with a Scottish flavour. In some cases, we use Lowland Scots because that is My Lady Human/Mummy’s native tongue. There are spelling differences between Lowland Scots and the different dialects and versions of English as written and spoken in other parts of our wonderful, diverse world.
Sammy the Cat’s native tongue is Cat. There are spelling differences between Human English and Cat English. Where Cat English predominates, cat won the argument.
Alex the Dog’s native tongue is Dog. There are no differences between Human English and Dog English except in pronunciation and the occasional letter mix-ups.
