Pets in Stories?
Have you ever read a story where a pet takes over a story? Or really adds to the story? Makes the characters more ... human?
Who would have ever thought wolves would have pets?
But there are numerous cases where predator and prey live happily together. :)
These big sleepy canines are Irish Wolfhounds and they actually killed wolves, not the other way around. But in Heart of the Highland Wolf, they're the MacNeill clan's pets. Why?
Those who had more money could afford to have hunting dogs in days of old. In this case, the Irish used wolfhounds to unseat English knights from their horses.
Since the MacNeills started out in Ireland, that was the reason for their having the wolfhounds. But through the ages, they've always been the best of companions.
It's already April 1st, no fooling, and June is just around the corner! Get ready for hunky Highland wolves!!! :)
Hope you have a delightful TGIF. I'm going to try and get some new tires on my car today before I have none on the highway...and have lunch with an author friend. But for now? It's time to get back to big jungle cats!
So what kind of pet would a jaguar cat have???
