Pet Pals: Skye’s Black Lab
I’m not a pet person. Not that I hate animals or anything, but I’ve never had pets of my own. I noticed that I never write pets into my books either. My poor men are deprieved of having a pet pal. It got me thinking that if I had written in a pet, what kind would I have chosen for each of my characters?
So I’m going to feature Pet Pals during the next few weeks.
Not all of my characters would have pets – I really can’t see Drew Adams wanting to take care of animal or wanting the ‘mess’ it comes with…hair on the furniture, cleaning the kitty litter…but since he’s now living with Skye, well, Skye would have man’s best friend — a dog. With a cottage on the beach, a lab is a perfect choice for Skye. They are friendly, outgoing and always have a smile on their face, and they love to play in the waves. Not sure what he’d name his pet, but maybe something to do with art because he’s a painter. Picasso, maybe, or Chiaro (short for chiaroscuro – Italian painting term meaning light/dark). If you have any ideas for names or kind of pets – please post them! Who knows, if I write a future book with the same characters, one of these pets just might show up in the book. 🙂
Happy Reading! Viki
