About Lady MacBeth:

I’m Lady MacBeth. I’m a Newfoundland Dog. I was born September 22, 2014. I live in Postville, Newfoundland with two people called Mommy and Daddy and three cats. I like to play with the cats but they don’t like to play with me. My Daddy wrote a book about me because even though I’m big and strong, I’m afraid of everything, especially the big stairs inside the house. The big stairs inside the house go down and down and down forever. And it’s dark down there. And there might be bicycles and vacuum cleaners and shopping carts and paper bags down there.
