Anyone who has ever owned or loved a dog knows that, no matter how dorky they are, their love is unconditional. A cliche, perhaps, but like all cliches, it’s more than a little bit true. Carrying on with my inspirations, these are my three dogs, Oscar, Cowboy, and Jasper.
Jasper, the smallest of the three, is the old boy, and very much the alpha dog. Cowboy, the big Aussie shepherd is the baby, and thinks he’s the same size as his Yorkie siblings – not so good when he tries to sit on your lap!
I’m using the words of contemporary fantasy author Jonathan Carroll to explain why dogs inspire us all, writers or not.
