I read AJ's post and was surprised to find that he'd been thinking about his own pet a lot recently. A few weeks ago we went camping and found two dogs that had been 'dropped off' in the woods. People we knew promised to take the dogs home and one of them actually did. We went camping four days later and found that one dog got left behind. Those are the saddest words ever- left behind. She slept under our camper and foraged for food. I bought her a bag of dog food and yes, she came home with us. She isn't really a good fit with our German shepard or our cats but she's here just the same. My husband said it takes time and I guess that's true about most things.
I have to wonder about a person who can throw something away when it's no longer of use to them. I can see 'things' but not animals or people. I'm a softie for lost and stray animals and yes, sometimes for lost and stray people as well. A lot of people in today's society see our older generation as lost or stray people. I embrace them myself and often mold my characters after them. All of that knowledge and lived life is a cache of stories that we should be honored to write.
In the midst of all this chaos I have a new release- The Last Waltz. It's a very short sweet romance published at Red Rose Publishing and for the month of November you can buy it for only 89 cents. You'll have to use this code RedRose10 when you check out. Yes, it does have older characters and it's what I would refer to as a tear jerker!
