This is my current muse--a Glen of Imaal terrier. I have named this one ^ Mungo. (Although I don't know what its real name is...but I have never seen a dog look so much like a Mungo in all my life.)
One part adorable + one part gruff + one part strong + one part stout = Mungo.
You know, sometimes at night before I go to sleep, I kind of wish I could live in my stories for a while. Maybe I am just hopeful that the dream faerie will allow me to visit my story-land for a bit. Usually by morning, theses fanciful thought have disappeared, gone with the last star.
However, I find myself wishing these days for a little terrier named Mungo....(and also wishing that if I did have one, he could also happen to shape-shift into an otter!)
