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.”
Another quote from my yet to be published dog story:
I shut off the engine, seeking to take in the significance of this moment. The world around me continued to march on. Lanterns fastened to our house flickered rhythmically in the lengthening shadows. Songbirds filled the air with music. Clouds, painted red and purple by the setting sun, mourned the loss of their companion as the horizon swallowed its golden prize. Colorful leaves fell gently to the ground like parachutes in the intermittent breeze.
