A nameless dog plays a big part in the story of Guarding Gaby, helping Eli watch over Gaby while Eli must remain in hiding, for her sake. This dog is based on one we used to own early in our marriage, built like a boxer but had a head—and powerful tracking nose—like a beagle. Wishbone was skinny and covered with ticks when we found him, but under our care, he soon recovered his sleek muscular frame. He was a sweetheart, but boy, did we have to keep an eye on him because the slightest scent would have him wandering off, nose to the ground!
Over the years, I’ve had both cats and dogs, and both have big draws as pets. Do you prefer one or the other, or are you happier with both? Leave your comment below!
