Who is in the photo at right?
Piper Lee is on the right and Mimi is on the left. My name is Mimi Schroeder and my company, Max Communications, provides publicity for authors and their books. Piper is a very calm West Highland white terrier, an 8-year-old female as well as I can guess. She is a rescue dog. My company was named after Max, my first Westie.
What's the occasion for Coffee with a Canine?
Piper and I enjoy coffee on the balcony every morning. She can’t wait for Fed Ex to roll by.
A hot cup of Starbucks Verona coffee with cream.
Any treats for you or Piper on this occasion?
We’re really enjoying the Halloween candy this morning; Piper gets Pupperoni.
How did Piper get her name? Any aliases?
Piper was named after the first Westie I ever knew and has had me hooked on Westies ever since. She was given the middle name Lee so she could be a proper Southern belle and have two first names.
How were you and Piper united?
Found her through a wonderful rescue group for Westies.
Who are Piper's best pet-pals?
Piper loves a little white poodle named Mr. Horton who lives in our building.
Rabbit, postman, cat....?
Quiet little Piper gets very loud when she sees the postman, Fed Ex or UPS.
Squeaky toy, ball, stick...?
Favorite toy is a little pink bear attached to a tiny blankie. It came with her from her foster home.
What is Piper's best quality?
She’s very copacetic, very zen-like.
If Piper could change one thing about you, what would it be?
Make her a faster walker.
If Hollywood made a movie about your life in which Piper could speak, which actor should do her voice?
If your dog could answer only one question in English, what would you ask her?
What was your life like before you were rescued?
