Macaulay The Dog: now on audio!

There is nothing, is there, like a laugh just before bedtime. For the dog lovers amongst you, Macaulay The Dog seems to do the trick. So I’ve begun to record his slightly haphazard and enduringly odorous adventures onto podcasts.

They’re not long -about four minutes or less. But here at Shrewsday Mansions we have found they are ideal for listening to at bedtime.

Though breakfast is fine too. And indeed, any other time of the day you care to choose.

Whilst I play around with my site to work out a way you can get an RSS feed for the podcasts – and receive notification of each audio story as it arrives – I am posting the podcast in the body of my posts. It seemed like the sensible thing to do. So here goes: to play, click here.

  1. You give good audio Kate, and the slapstick-style intro and exit music is perfect, but I’d so love to hear Mac’s bark. Can you record it to for future Mac tales (tails)? Are Ludo and Barney aware of their presence at Shrewsday Mansions?

    1. We will try to compile some Mac audio for you, Virginia. Timing is the secret here….must keep a lookout for Barney and Ludo. And no: though we all know the relationship between Mac and this pair, Barney and Ludo are oblivious to their new-found star status.

      1. You have the voice, diction, intonation and style for it, Kate. I’m completely hopeless – my Mum still tells me to articulate properly, and I’m 50! Best wishes for a new career path. I believe that you will do very well.

  2. This reminds me that I have audio footage of Cat snoring and purring. I must preserve it somehow. But both my cats have been masters of the silent but deadly farts, and so far I have no way of recording their malodours; not that anyone would be pleased if I did!

  3. Dear Kate, I’ve been away for a good six weeks and what a treat to return to a story about Macaulay. And not a story to read. No, one to listen to. And one narrated by someone whose voice and diction and inflections just bring out the deep-down feistiness of the dog with whom you live. I so look forward to more stories about this intrepid dog and his neighbors. Peace.

  4. This is great! Starting the day with a Macaulay story would put me into a good mood till bedtime. When you and the Dog Star go on the road, please make a stop in Austin. We would love to have you both speak to our Sisters in Crime ~ Heart of Texas chapter on any topic you choose. I have an intense desire to give that dog a big hug.
