Go to the Dogs
I kind of, sort of, acquired a dog for Christmas.
Why am I dreading this, you ask, since she belongs to my sister? Because I ended up taking her home. I spent the night, my own fault, and listened to her complain about the dog, the trouble involved in caring for her, watched her and her grown son argue about who should take the dog out, etc. Meanwhile, the dog acted friendly, well-behaved, really nice. The challenged me to take her home "temporarily" and try her out. I have no clue why I said yes. Especially since they forgot to mention they had not walked her that morning and let me put her in my car for an hour drive home. Needless to say the back seat of my car was baptized.
See, like babies, a nice, well-behaved, I just want to lay down at your feet, or with your shoes, dog can make you fall in love.
So here she is, and I already know she isn't going back. Which means she needs a name. I have enough trouble naming the characters in my books (trust me, each one is a laborious event) So, can anyone give me a name? And a way to keep her from dislocating my wrist when she goes lunging after something interesting? I am open to all suggestions. And if I pick your name I will reward you with a copy of one of my books, Pull, Die Trying and other stories, and the upcoming Being God to be released Feb , 2013.
