Coffee with a canine: Carly Phillips & Bailey and Buddy

This weekend's featured trio at Coffee with a Canine: Carly Phillips & Bailey and Buddy.

Carly Phillips--Karen Drogin's pen name--is a New York Times bestselling author of contemporary romantic fiction. Buddy and Bailey are soft coated wheaten terriers.

On how the three were united:
Well. Buddy who is 12 obviously came first. When my husband and I first lived together in Manhattan, we had a Maltese named Spike, who turned aggressive after my first child was born and we gave him to a single person who could lavish him with all the love and attention he needed. Trust me, this wasn't easy and I swore I'd never get that attached again. One day, we saw a wheaten at a friend's house (these friends had 3 kids) and fell in love. One day, hubby and I went to see a movie (Armageddon) and there was a pet store next door. We saw this wheaten ... and went back for him the next day. Needless to say, so much for not getting attached ever again. Buddy is my heart dog, the sweetest, most loving boy you will ever meet. A few years ago, another friend who has a Portugese water dog got a second and said it really made the older one act younger. Once again, hubby said, maybe we should get another ... and that's all I needed to hear. I spent a week straight searching for a wheaten breeder and found one who said they had a litter and the home for a female fell through ... when the time came...[read on]
About Phillips' forthcoming Kiss Me If You Can:
Sam Cooper (“Coop”) has just become the most eligible bachelor in New York City. Now that he has foiled a jewelry-store robbery and has been rewarded with the ring of his choice, single women all over the city are fawning over the crime reporter. But Coop isn’t interested in the admirers sending racy underwear his way. His attention is centered solely on Lexie Davis, the only woman in the city who claims not to be interested in his bachelor status.

Instead, free-spirited Lexie is interested in Coop’s antique ring, and its – potentially scandalous – history in her family. But Coop is quickly becoming more than just her route to the ring. When his investigation starts to uncover the truth, will she trust her heart – and her family secrets – to this most eligible bachelor?
