The relationship between dogs and humans has been evolving for tens of thousands of years, but it was only when Scrabble began writing about this from a dog's perspective that humans realized the true nature of their Best Friend status.

Mike&ScrabbleToo is the awkwardly adorable sequel to Mike&Scrabble. It represents the collected posts and tweets of our dynamic duo from the summer of 2016 to 'it's Christmas,' and reflects the changing nature of their relationship - as well as the improving drawing skills of Scrabble's chosen illustrator, Mike.

This book features more flights of fancy, more smiles and fewer moments of sadness than Scrabble's first offering; enjoy it today!

About the Author

Mike Dicks has had what is best described as a 'portfolio career,' and a life of creating anecdotes about himself. Mike accidentally got jobs selling technologies before anyone wanted them, then made bits of the world-wide-web before anyone knew they needed them. Recently, Mike has been travelling the world teaching people how not to make the same mistakes that he did, and making pictures of Brighton and dead celebrities for people to buy. Mike lives by the sea, in Hove, with a dog called Scrabble. He's married to Debbie and has two sons, and a stepson and stepdaughter.

Scrabble lives in Hove with Mike. She was rescued from the Allsorts Rescue Centre in January 2016 and her story should really be the subject of a 'prequel' book. By all accounts she was an accident on an Irish puppy farm: there are far too many places like these in Ireland, and far too many 'accidents.' The volunteers at Allsorts say that she was picked up by a feisty Irish woman who drives around all the farms collecting unwanted dogs, before the farmers, well, you simply don't want to know what the farmers do with these unwanted accidents. Our heroine then takes her collected dogs to the RSPCA or Battersea Dogs Home, which bring them to the UK and distribute them to various charities and rescue centres. Scrabble probably has hundreds of siblings; perhaps you are owned by one of them ...?
