Suzanne Donaldson & Edie, Clair, and Gus

Who is pictured in the photos here?

I am Suzanne Donaldson [photo below], expert on all things Chic Pet. I have a dog website called Mrs Sizzle.

I have three dogs: Edie [photo: right] and Clair [photo: left] are mixed breeds (we think morkie), and Gus is a Labradoodle!

What's the occasion for Coffee with a Canine?

My everyday ritual is a loop in Central Park with a stop at Pain Quotidian half way through. The fun part is in the summer I use the lid top as a water bowl for them to drink from.

What's brewing?

Pain Q's finest cappuccino.

Any treats for you or your dogs on this occasion?

Indeed — they hand out the best dog treats to customers.

How did your dogs get their names? Any aliases?

No story there. But both are referred to as B, and Clair gets the occasional Bibichi thanks to my friend Marja Sampson.

How were you and your dogs united?

In a puppy store — hate to say it but it's what led me to Mrs Sizzle and my animal awareness campaign.

Squeaky-toy, ball, stick...?

Zanies and the small fetch balls on sticks.

Squirrel, postman, cat....?

Anyone on street.

Where is your dogs' favorite outdoor destination?

Our Brookhaven house on the bay — they are water dogs.

Who is Edie and Clair's best pet-pal?

Gus their older brother.

What is each dog's best quality?

Edie — outgoing; Clair — pure love.

If your dogs could change one thing about you, what would it be?

They'd want me to stop working all of the time.

If Hollywood made a movie about your life in which your dogs could speak, which actors should do their voices?

Edie would be Ellen DeGeneres and Clair would be Reese Witherspoon.

What advice would your dogs give if asked?

How to be trained better!

  1. If (and I mean IF) I could get my dog on a paddle board, I'm certain that Coco would push me off.
