I've finally decided to write a book and stumbled upon a subject. I'm going to write about my childhood as an only child, and add in one of the fantasies I used to play out to keep myself entertained: I'm lonely, I have no brothers or sisters, no friends, and I discover my dog can talk. She becomes my best friend, and we do all sorts of things together. You get the idea.
My question at this stage is: which dog do I use? Sami, who I grew up with? Kibeth, who is my first greyhound and dog whom I am solely responsible for? JoJo, my heartdog? Or Dolce, the dog with the most stories between them all, the youngest, and I've only had him for 3 months? Or should I use a dog I've never met, one from my imagination?
