First Chapter-- First Paragraph-- Tuesday Intros
Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea hosts First Chapter, First Paragraph, Tuesday Intros. This week's intro is from The Dog That Talked to God by Jim Kraus:
Born in the wealthy enclave of Barrington, Illinois in late autumn, Rufus was the smallest pup in a litter of four -- black with highlights, white eyebrows and chest. The breeder, a precise woman with a lazy eye, said that as an adult, he would most likely remain on the smallish side. That's a good trait for a miniature schnauzer. He had the look, even as a seven week old, of a polished, professional dog, holding a practiced dog show stance -- legs back, chest forward, eyes alert -- all inherited traits, genetics at its best.
But she said nothing about Rufus talking. Not just talking, but talking to God. In dog prayers, I imagine.
