"I'm in love, I'm in love, and I don't care who knows it!" -Buddy the Elf I love my dog, Hope. She is the reason I get up in the morning (literally, her paw is my alarm) and why I smile at bedtime. As I sit here trying to write something profound about Show, don't Tell or characterization or POV, all I can think about is my sweet Hope. She waits patiently while I procrastinate, and she never judges. She doesn't care if I write anything at all. I think I'll take her for a much-deserved walk instead of attempting a silly blog.

Hope, you complete me!
