This is not my dog, Lucky, but it looks remarkably like him!
Another quote from my upcoming book:
” Without warning a loud noise erupted in the kitchen. The door leading to the garage burst open and slammed against another door immediately behind it. A troubling scratching sound followed, made by claws searching for grip on a ceramic tile floor. A low growl grew in intensity. Thunderous blows, like the beating of drums filled the air as youthful feet stuck the floor with the force of an adult twice their size.”
“Patty loved animals as much as I did. We’ve had a pet of some kind ever since we’ve been married. When we set out to build our first house we couldn’t wait to fill it with animals. Not to the extent Noah filled the ark, but Patty wanted a kitten and I coveted a black Labrador retriever…By the time we finished building, our menagerie consisted of three species of birds, two large tanks of fish, a dog and two kittens. The arrival of our first child changed everything.”
