A little introduction:
I started writing as a child and always dreamed of becoming a professional, even tried to make that happen for several years, as a young adult. (This was back in the 70s, long before the internet.) Discouraged by constant rejection, the need for a steady paycheque and the challenges of life in general, that muse became buried, deeper and deeper, as time wore on. Slowly, and with the help of computers and the blogging world, (which I have embraced wholeheartedly), the muse has returned. Currently, I am writing a multi-part series about the dogs in my care, which will be turned into a book. So far, there are four chapters and these 8 sentences are from the first:
“I first met Luke when he was only 9 months old. What a magnificent dog! A beautiful White Shepherd, (aka Snow Shepherd or Swiss Shepherd), the likes of which I had never seen before. It was my weekly assignment to take him out for some exercise while his owners were at work.
The first day, he was barking furiously and ready to attack before I got through the door!
This was a little nerve-wracking, but I was hoping he would calm down, once he picked up my scent. Our initial meeting had been a few days prior and he had given me a thorough “once over”. With outstretched hand, palm up, I tiptoed in.”
