the chair to Rascal
My dog, Rascal, is over 8 years old, yet sometimes she reverts to puppyhood. It's usually when I'm not paying enough attention to her. She knows exactly how to get it. All she has to do is find something of mine and start chewing on it.
When she's in one of those attention-getting moods, anything I leave on the dining room chair is Open Season for her. I made the mistake of leaving my gloves and knit hat there for a few minutes on Monday, and one of my gloves landed on the floor underneath and in her mouth.
Okay, I'm not exactly dumb. I also know how to get her attention by luring her with a treat to distract her so I can retrieve one of my prized possessions before it gets wrecked. I take that back. Maybe, she's the smart one and knows how to get extra treats from me. Still desperate times require desperate measures.
In Her Handyman, my recent romantic comedy release, FuFu, a Chinese Crested dog, plays a major role in getting Jake, the handyman, and Zoe, the rich artist together. Actually, FuFu is kind of innocent, since she was only playing with her toy when it landed in the toilet, making the water overflow, causing Zoe to call Jake for help.
Or, was it an accident? Maybe Fufu wanted attention, and knew how to get it. We'll never know.Sometimes characters clue me in, and sometimes not.
If you have a dog, maybe yours craves attention also. Or, maybe you know of a fictional one who does.
