So... it twas actually the hero!

As you may have guessed, I'm still in chapter one of current wip, so I'm feeling my way about so to speak.

Anyway I read all your lovely comments on my ferret issue this morning then went about the usual morning chores - you know, picking up after three little boys, scraping Weetbix off the kitchen floor tiles, putting on hundreds of loads of washing - and a lightbulb flashed inside my head.

It isn't the heroine after all who has a pet in this little baby! It's the tough, hard-core, aloof, almost unlikeable hero and he's got a BIG ONE!! Dog that is! My hero is the proud owner of a Napoleon Mastiff OR a Napoleon Moutain Dog... can't quite make up my mind. See pics below and let me know which one you like best!!

For me, it is the Napoleon Mastiff. Totally. Great dog. Girlfriend in the USA has one called Handsome and she is often to be spotted driving around town in her small compact with Handsome sitting proudly beside her in the passenger side. If you are looking for something smaller I can personally recommend the Pug, although maybe not that manly (I hope my husband doesnt read this)

Tory said...

Mountain Dog. Because dogs are supposed to look like their owners!

Rachael Johns said...

That's exactly what I'm going for Felicity - BIG DOG in passenger seat, only it'll be some swish, TRES expensive sports car instead!

B.H. Dark said...

Be prepared to have Big Dog Drool everywhere. Tres sexy.

Aren't they both gorgeous. Having had a Rotty in the past, who was so loving and gentle, I'm going the Mastiff. And dogs bring out the 'oh aren't you a good dogl' sentiment from their owners.

Jackie Ashenden said...

Hahaha! Don't you love it when you decide on one thing and then the characters wag their fingers at you and go 'uh huh'. I'm not really a doggy person but I'd go for the Mastiff. Purely because they're distinctive looking.

Joanne Cleary said...

I prefer the mountain dog out of the two you chose. But how about a tibetan mastiff? Historically they used to guard the monasteries in Tibet. I LOVE dogs and think a doggy sidekick is a great plan. Not sure if all big dogs drool but it will give you something to research :-)

Lacey Devlin said...

Oooo dogs are suppose to look like their owners... I own a pug... I'd pick the Mastiff and make it a sook ;)... but then I own a pug...

Gail Fuller said...

Good luck and have fun with whichever dog you choose! My vote goes to the Mastiff. :)

Giant breeds are wonderful. All of ours have been big babies. We have a Wolfhound at the moment, but we've also had a Newfoundland (major drool, probably on par with a Mastiff *g*), and a Great Dane.

Have fun with your new pet. :)

All the best,
Gail :)

Christina Phillips said...

Oh the Mastiff looks sooo doleful, I just want to give him a big cuddle! So... that could work in your hero's favour *grin*

Although I'm not a fan of drool, at all... ewwwww!!!!

Suzanne Brandyn said...

I agree with Tory, Mountain dog. He is lovely. Dogs suppose to look like their owners, I heard this. I must check out the people around me and see if it's true. lol.

Suzanne said...

I'd go with the Mountain Dog - only because the Mastiff looks heartbreakingly sad and might be too distracting.
