Wow Louise, I wasn’t even thinking about your logic when I introduced a dog into my second book! Chance (of course the dog) possesses a lot of the traits you mention, and also has some very special talents we’ll discover in the next book. As I worked on the story Chance took a life of her own, demonstrating loyalty to her owner, a loving nature to the child character in the book, and at one point a vicious reaction to a family member that the rest of the family didn’t understand until it was too late. I had a great time with Chance and can’t wait to see how she behaves in the next book.

And I thought I was too old to have imaginary friends.
