May Wong & Miss Darcy

Who is in the photo at right?

May Wong - a blogger, an interior designer, a marketer. Miss Darcy is a cockapoo, now 2 3/4 - turns 3 on February 26.

What's the occasion for Coffee with a Canine?

After our morning walks and she does her constitution, I like to stop for a coffee at Gail's for my decaff cappuccino - it's my time to start the day. And especially on summer Sunday mornings, I like to read the Sunday papers at Gail's - sharing the morning with Miss Darcy.

What's brewing?

Gail's decaff cappuccino.

Any treats for you or Miss Darcy on this occasion?

She shares my croissant!

How did Miss Darcy get her name? Any nicknames?

My fantasy is to have a "Mr. Darcy" in my life and the most assured way of getting a "Mr. Darcy" is to get a dog - loyal, protective and loving. But when Darcy turned out to be a girl - she became Miss Darcy.

How were you and Miss Darcy united?

I found her on the internet - a breeder's website. She came to me by special delivery from Wales - it would have been a very long drive or a long train ride.

Who are Miss Darcy's best pet-pals?

Zavia and Rocko.

Squirrel, postman, cat....?

Squeaky toy, ball, stick...?

Her squeaky teddy. When she gets excited, she runs up to it and pushes it with her nose to squeak it. Sometimes she decides to walk with it in her mouth.

What is Miss Darcy's best quality?

Loving every moment of every day - excited about every walk, every meal, every time I return home!

If Miss Darcy could change one thing about Londoners, what would it be?

Let dogs into all restaurants.

If Hollywood made a movie about your life in which Miss Darcy could speak, which actor should do her voice?

Renée Zellweger.

If Miss Darcy could answer only one question in English, what would you ask her?

How much do you love me?
