Animal Fiction

siberian husky, dog, story, rescue, animal, pet
Today I am writing a story about a rescued dog and his owner in, Snow Dog. I think that many people either owned a dog as a pet at some point in their lives or wished they did. Stories of animals remind us of our childhood and the drama that came from the relationships we had with our pets. The combination of child and pet is simple, unlike most other human relationships. Dogs just flat out love their owners with a consistent and unrelenting love as long as they are fed and sheltered. Kevin, the main character in this story, rescues Snow Dog shortly after he moves into the neighborhood. Almost immediately the dog proves loyal to him, providing a friendship for life.

I hope to finish the story by this afternoon, since it is too cold to work outside much today.

I didn't notice any for my area, but maybe you will have better luck.
