Tess Toad Tummy

Sally's People are characters I invented for books, short stories and poems. Their creation spans the last three decades of the 20th Century and (so far) the first of the 21st.
Tess Toad Tummy is a sweet little dog with a penchant for stealing bath plugs... and eating them. She belong to Mrs Gamble, and trots merrily and larcenously through Baker's story in "Soggy Doggy Dot Com". Tess Toad Tummy is named after our own little dog Tess, who also used to eat bath plugs in her youth.
Soggy Doggy Dot Com was published in 2000 by Barrie Publishing in the Momentum series. I wrote it under the pseudonym of Patrick Farrell, and it is one of my favourites. A related title is Creature Cottage.
